Keep in mind there's always a risk with a BIOS update, but this is something that should be covered by the manufacturers warranty on an official release, but in this event, you would have to send the board in for repair. I think it's worth testing a BIOS with the latest AGESA firmware, given what you're seeing.
It would be worth testing an M.2 SSD if you don't have one. It'll be a performance upgrade. Also, we'll rule out another component and the OS entirely.
Yes, if you purchased a replacement plan and the board fails, you would just bring the board into the store for a replacement. As for testing it. Once you flash the BIOS, use the computer normally. We'll see if the instability remains the same.
There's a BIOS section you can click on above where your screenshot cuts off.
@Burgereer just chiming in. Yes download the latest version under Global and no it will not remove or wipe out your data on your HDD including Minecraft.
This looks correct.
Yes, just use the PC as normal.
You added a new SSD or you replaced an existing one and installed Windows to it?
I see, you need to partition it to work with your computer:
Yes, that should be fine.
Are you using wi-fi or ethernet to connect?
As for the SSD, are you referring to installing Windows on to that?
Correct, you would just set it manually when you are doing an install. If it's a Steam game etc., you can move it over from the program itself.
Can you try a reinstall of your Ethernet drivers, typically that blue screen refers to network / bluetooth drivers. To do this:
1. Right click on the start button, typically found at the lower left, and pick Device Manager.
2. Expand the arrow next to "Network Adapters"
3. In the list below Network Adapters, we will want to uninstall the driver that typically will say "Ethernet" or "Ethernet Controller"
4. Double click on the one that says this in its name.
5. On the properties screen that opens, go to the driver tab and click on Uninstall at the bottom and leave the box unchecked.
6. Once uninstalled, restart the system and Windows automatically reinstalls the driver on restart.
7. Once restarted, it should reconnect you to your network.
