Recently formatted PC started freezing, crashing, blue screens. Even in the BIOS

80/80

Anyways, I'm pretty sure software isnt at fault here because it worked fine before, already tried cleaning it with a lot of stuff, there is no dust inside anymore. What weirded me out the most is that it even froze when I was browsing the BIOS F1 Menu.

Any idea what could be wrong?

What were your CPU temps in BIOS when it froze?

Could be PSU related

First thing that springs to mind is RAM or PSU. Either recently replaced?

RAM is still factory, PSU was replaced 3-4 years ago

It could still be the RAM, though. Run memtest.

Is it consistent? Will it happen every time or a high percentage of the time? I wouldn't think it would honestly be the PSU at that stage since there should hardly be much load on it. But it's possible that it's on its last legs. Especially if it's getting progressively worse and worse.

This type of issue, to me, is tough because you really have to start replacing one thing at a time to really nail down the problem.

Sometimes it happens right after it boots onto windows, some times it goes on for hours without crashing, but it does crash rather frequently

I would disconnect all hardware and leave only the bare essentials to run the PC.
