So this is home build with m2 hard drive z170-ar asus with intel cpu, I got a good corsair power supply.
I don't play games, much or that's not causing the crashes.
I mostly do Visual Studio as my main thing. It did help when deleted multiple year versions of VS and only had 2019 running, but now it seems to be crashing a bit more, twice a day

last message was tried to write to read only memory, but I get some different ones.

Temp is usually 35c-45c, a few times I'll see it go up to 50+

Hi,
Anything below 85 degrees Celsius is what I would consider safe. What exact power supply, CPU and GPU do you have? Have you overclocked your CPU at all?

Yeah, I reset to defaults and tried to underclocked. I maybe it's my memory

I have a decent graphics card, but don't use it too much, just have dual monitor display, many times the computer is not doing anything when it crashes.
.
Graphics card ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Dual-Fan OC Edition Graphics Card (DUAL-GTX1060-O3G)

Power supply 2014 Corsair Power Supplies , RM 750W CP-9020055-NA

Sorry for not responding sooner.
What might work is backing up your data, then using Microsoft 'diskpart' to entirely reset your drive. You can use a Windows install media to do this, by just accessing command prompt, typing "diskpart", selecting the drive, then typing "clean". It may also be a RAM issue with dual channel, so you could try reseating your RAM or testing with only one stick at a time.
 
If it's a glitch/corruption pertaining to your installation or applications, then a reinstall of everything should fix it. Merely deleting partitions from within early in WIndows setup form a bootable WIn10 USB installer is sufficient, WIndows setup will perform a quick format as a part of the install. (Waste of time doing any detailed blanking/overwriting of anything during the format, as anything newly installed will overwrite whatever was there anyway....)

If you want to see if you RAM/mainboard are stable, you might create/boot from USB a Memtest86, and run it overnight...

if no errors in an 8-12 hour run, odds are memory is stable...
