Question BSOD critical process died when gaming or watching movies

Aug 16, 2020
Hello everyone hope ya'll doin well!

I've been getting a bsod at least 3-4 times a day the last couple days usually while gaming or watching netflix. Once the minidump file is created and the computer goes to restart I get a "No bootable Device" message. Once I power off and power on I'm typically able to boot again although sometimes it takes a few cycles of power off/on to get a proper boot.

I've tried:

chkdsk and sfc scannow both of which have returned no errors

Running driver verifier which would cause the machine to freeze without triggering a bsod

I used crystal Disk info to check the health of my drives and seemingly they are at %100

I took a peak at the minidump file and it seems to point to ntoskrnl.exe and specifically csrss.exe (mostly) and svchost.exe (once or twice)

I've included a link to all the minidumps

Thanks for the reply. My PC has two drives one SSD and one HDD and I'm pretty sure windows is loaded onto the SSD which crystal disk info says is healthy.
