The b250m is an 1151 intel board but the nomenclature looks like amd. I still think the problem is the cpu having a less than optimal cooler on it has caused cpu dmg. Dunno if it's been fully stressed yet. A screen freeze is a cpu stop and that's what they do when thermally dmg'd. It can happen if the cpu is under volted but the circumstances are that the pc has been running ok for 16 months until now with the 160w cooler on the 180w cpu, albeit with some good airflow, and the question of how warm we're getting under load hasn't yet been fully answered.

I have a Asrock b450M pro4 (motherboard). I already updated the BIOS a couple days ago. I'll try to find a way to crash my pc so it gives me a dump file and come back to you.
I took their word for it and it was only after looking on 2nd page I noticed the mistake and looked at the 250 instead :)
Dumps may not show anything but might as well look.

By intel management engine, if there a way to find the right installer or driver to install? I'm really not sure about what to install right now. I did install what you told me to install (the 219 driver). As for the Bios, I updated it a couple days ago...

@DavidM012 Like I said earlier yesterday, my computer froze once. My main problems are the BSOD I got during the past few weeks. I'm monitoring my cpu temp everyday and it never got over 65 degrees.

Hi, Colif asked me to take a look at the dumps. I think PC Tailor has already provided all of this info (or almost all of it) so I'm not sure how helpful it will be. But here's the info: https://pste.eu/p/j5xj.html

I had symbol problems with all 3 so that might mean they are partially corrupt.

Possible Motherboard page: https://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/B250M Pro4/index.asp
It appears you the latest BIOS already installed (v2.5).

This information can be used by others to help you. I can't help you with this. Someone else will post with more information. Please wait for additional answers. Good luck.

Thank you sir. I haven't been online all day long and it seems my pc had no crash today. I'm still in touch with Asrock to see if I can get a new motherboard, just in case this one have been damaged and I also got in touch to get RAM replacement. If this doesn't solve the issue, I will probably swipe clean all of my HDD and SSD and do another clean install. I've installed pretty much everything people told me to install but I wasn't able to test it out properly since I was away. If I get more BSoD, I'll post the dump files here for you all to read them. Thank you again for the work you are doing, I'm glad I found this forum.

Alright guys, after a few more test with memtest64, I'm pretty sure one of my RAM stick is dead. I tried both stick at the same time 3-4 times and my pc crashed. I decided to test them one by one on the same slot (in case the slot was the culprit) and I got like 20 errors in less than a minute with one of the stick. The other stick seems fine. I will continue to check up any other stuff that you guys mentionned if I have another crash. I'll buy RAM this weekend and hopefully, it'll solve the problem. If I don't have crash during the next 72 hours, I think it'll be good. Anyway, thank you for your help, it was one hell of a ride!
