Hi all,
My computer keeps crashing and I'm not sure why. I've changed hardware and I've googled the error codes I've gotten. These error codes are:
IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED

My hardware is as follows:
mobo: asrock b550 steel legend
psu: corsair rm750w gold
cpu: ryzen 5 3500x
ram: t-force xtreem argb 32gb (2x16)
Storage: samsung nvme 500gb
storage: wd blue 1tb
gpu: gigabyte 1660ti

I've changed my hardware from 8gb of ddr4 2133 to 32gb of ddr4 3600, changed my psu from 650w to 750w. I do not have fast boot enabled, I have my ram speed set to auto in the bios but when I check task manager it only shows 2400 mhz.
I've checked the list of drivers and they're all up to date. There's a windows update available, but it's not letting me update it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I built this computer in February and I've been troubleshooting this problem since then, and have not been able to enjoy my first build at all.
Thank you!

Try sfc /scannow for repair there is also a dism repair tool you can try that afterwards. Possibly try running a memtest, maybe only using one stick of ram. Disable xmp if you have it enabled. Also could try flashing to a different bios version.

You don't need 750W for a 1660TI. It's not really how much wattage you have, it's more about getting a PSU with a quality build. Which is why we only recommend certain units around here and not others.

IRQ errors are most likely linked to either a faulty RAM module, bad sectors on a hard drive, or Windows installation. Knowing the exact code you get would help point the direction of the culprit.
