I am really sorry about sentence structure, I have to type this on my phone. My old computer had issues with freezing and crashing, so I bought parts from online. The obly things I didnt replace were the SSD, the HDD, and the optical drive. I would get the parts list but its on my computer.

I had issues when I first got it. For maybe a month or two, I got a ton of bsod errors, the ones I remember are IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, something about kernels... But there were a lot of different ones. Every time I tried to look up how to fix one, of get a different one. I assumed it was a driver issue since I hadn't wanted to completely start over by wiping my hard drive, but all drivers were up to date. I reinstalled windows, and that failed, as well as running memtest and trying quite a few other things. Then one day it stopped; I don't know what fixed it; it had crashed one bight while idling and I hadn't tried any fixes after it, but no blue screen, although the sound sort of glitches on a very regular basis.

Tonight I was reaching for something, and I hit a few wires that were connected to the back of the pc. The only two that seemed out of place were the audio jack and the Ethernet, but I decided to reseat all the cables just in case. I got a blue screen righr as I started adjusting the HDMI cable(note that I still had a display until then).

Since then, I've been back to varying bluescreens, only unlike when I first built this computer, it prevents getting on the computer at all. Sometimes it doesnt get to the login screen. Sometimes it gets to the login screen, but I get a black screen when I log in. Sometimes I get in past that, but it bliescreens again before I can even reach the dump files. I can't figure out how to atart up safe mode, (f8 doesbt work), and I dont kbow what else to do.

I can try to give you my specs from what I remember but it probably isnt enough detail. I have an amd ryazen cpu, and amd gamong motherboard, a graphics card that I'm pretty sure was a 1080, a coolermaster cpu fan, and a corsair power supply.

The most recent bsods that I wrote down were DRIVER_VERIFICATION_ERROR, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and 0xc000021a but other ones happen too.

A lot of different errors and BSODs like those is often caused by Ram problems.

I would unplug the mains power lead from the PSU then use the latches on the ram sockets to push the ram sticks up and then push them back down so the latches snap into place.

If possible run this SysInfo utility on the PC and paste the text it outputs into your reply please :-https://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe

I took out all four RAM sticks and reseated them in different slots. I got to the techguy forums before getting the DRIVER_VERIFIER_FOUND_VIOLATION error with HTTP.sys again. EDIT: got it downloaded this time, was able to run it but not log in to post. Next time ill take a picture and replicate the data by hand.

Also: got MEMORY_MANAGEMENT during startup.

It should show which motherboard and cpu you have in the Bios. Also please look at one of the ram sticks and tell us the full model details.

I didn't. I was able to run it for several hours yesterday like this as well, with a high load and everything. History tells me it's not fixed so much as difficult to reproduce.

Well, like I suspected, not fixed. During regular use today the computer just shut off and restarted, no bluescreen. Slightly after logging back in, another IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Ok, let's test the Ram.

Please go to this website and make a bootable Usb stick to run Memtest86 as described :- https://www.howtogeek.com/260813/how-to-test-your-computers-ram-for-problems/

Run the test for at least 1 pass (or overnight is better) and let me know if it finds any errors. If it finds errors while you're watching it you can stop it then. Any errors means there is a problem with your Ram and you should test each ram stick on it's own in the same way.

You do know that ram requires 1.35V vdimm correct? The board should default to 1.2V so you should set your ram voltage in the bios then test the ram with something like memtest.

Well memtest didn't come up with any errors, but I haven't changed anything in the bios yet, so I'll do that.

Something else I've noticed is small glitches or things like choppy sound, and choppy sound seems to have one potential cause of a failing hard drive. Coincidentally the HDD and SSD are the only things I actually kept from the previous computer that was freezing and crashing constantly, other than the optical drive. I have the OS stored on my SSD and most of my programs are on the HDD since the HDD has more room. If this is possibly the cause, should I replace one or both?

Is this a clean install OR did you try transferring the operating system?
I do not see where you listed your exact pw supply. Post the exact ie brand and model#
