For the past few months, I've been having issues with my PC where the first few (4-8) times I boot up my PC and launch programs, I will either encounter a blue screen, have my PC freeze up, or randomly restart without warning. Typically, the PC will freeze or BSOD when I launch intensive programs like games or simulations - but also occurs if I leave the PC alone for a while or very randomly in general.
Here are a list of BSOD Codes I've gotten for the past few months:
KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_LOCK_ACQUISITION_IRQL (this one might be incorrect, my PC restarted before I could fully jot it down).
I've tried manually updating all of my drivers in my device manager as well as running driver booster - both indicating all my drivers are updated, so I'm not sure if its a bad driver issue.
I've also replaced my HDD and RAM in the case they caused the issues - but obviously didn't help. Although, I am running a very old fan for my CPU and have a new one I could install, but wasn't too sure if heat would be a possible cause of this issue.
Should I install a new fan to cool my CPU (I have a new one that is very good quality - but slightly hard to install)? If you all have any suggestions for what I could do (besides completely buying new parts), please let me know.
