    Yesterday i installed a new motherboard, cpu and ram. All of which are compatible with each other. I run a 1050 ti and a intel i5 9400F, 16gb ram on a 500w cooler master power supply. GPU and and PSU are about 1 year old. I only got these problems after installing the new motherboard, cpu and ram. I had no problems booting the pc and it seemed like everything worked fine. I installed some of the drivers (some may be missing im not 100% sure if i did all of them correctly), but most should be correct.

    I first noticed the crashings as i launched cs go, discord and firefox at the same time. (within 2-3 minutes of each other). Opening some apps made the others crash and sometimes loop. Discord would shut down and start back up, cs:go would just shut down along with steam. And firefox tabs would also crash saying something like "oops we've ran into a problem, try refreshing".

    I feel like if this was a hardware problem my pc wouldnt boot or any indicator lamps on my motherboard would light up but only SB_PWR lamp is lighting up. I quickly googled it and its supposed to just show that power is on and connecting to the motherboard.

    If any more infiormation is needed please ask ill try to answer as well as i can. Hope anyone is able to help :D <3

    Edit: All fans inside the pc are running, everything seems like it is working, but some apps just shut down randomly. Sorta suffocates

    If different apps crash, and they seem unrelated, usually it is a RAM problem - return the RAM you bought for exchange.

    You don't mention re-installing Windows so are you still using Windows that was installed onto the older hardware ?

    What make and model was the old motherboard ?

    Sorry i havent responded, i reinstalled windows made sure all old drivers were gone. (AFAIK they are). I also checked my old ram to see if that fixed anything, it sadly hasn't changed anything.
