I have my m.2 in the top spot. and my bios has been flashed to the most current (7b79v1b). Just had a random reboot while browsing Newegg. Should I try swapping the m.2 to my lower spot??
BTW, I just ordered a new msi rx 5700, msi 570 board, and 3600 ryzen
Right now, I'm on a msi rx580, msi 470 board, and 1700 ryzen and average 3 to 10 random crashes per day whether I'm browsing or playing a game.
In your case, yes I would move the m2 drive - go to your spec sheet online, under storage it should say what the slots can handle, my slot 2 handles SATA while slot 1 does not.
Check your event viewer, if you have WHEA17 errors I can almost guarantee you that’s the issue. Since moving I have no more of those errors (was getting 30-80+ a day with random restarts and no BSOD prior)
(Im running X570 Gaming Pro Carbon, Sapphire Blower 5700xt, 3600x)
Thanks for the suggestion but it didn’t apply to my crappy reboots. I only get id 41. Bought a better psu today at Best Buy along with a new surge protector. Should be getting my 570 and 5700 and 3600 from ups sometime tomorrow. One thing I did try earlier this afternoon was I lowered my Ryzen minimal processing limit to 0%. Haven’t had a reboot all day. Hell... I left my pc running on desktop when I left for Best Buy and no reboot...only sleeping.
I improperly backed up my registry and that just made my games crash upon starting, didn't do much for me but anyone else should be good to try. Just make sure you aren't making a backup of the wrong folder
