My system has been experiencing intermittent crashing. There doesn't seem to be a specific cause, as the system could be doing fine for a month, and then experience 5 crashes in the same day. Then be okay for another week until crashing again. Through my own research, I have found that after a crash, my M.2 drive is no longer listed in BIOS until I power cycle the system. This initially led me to believe the M.2 drive was faulty, however disk check tells me otherwise (though I don't take disk check to be all knowing.) My only other inclination is maybe my PSU is dying or the wattage is too low. Over the course of a year event viewer has logged 41 of these unsolved crashes and I've finally had enough of putting up with it.
