Hello everyone, so the thing is that Im getting random bsod's and crashes, most of them don't even show the blue screen and pc just "stops" and restarts, sometimes bios doesn't show up (have to turn off power), sometimes pc boots again. It all started about 1 year ago when I needed to reapply thermal paste because of high temps on graphics card and processor, temps were fine after reapplying. I also reseted bios (switched jumper on mb and took off battery while manipulating with cpu and graphics). At first boot I've set up bios and booted to win. All ok. But one problem showed up next day. After turning on pc bios detected "new" cpu and showed this message "New CPU installed! Please enter setup to configure your system." "Press F1 to enter setup" "Press F2 to load default values and continue". I just entered setup, checked config and saved it. Next day this showed up again, entered setup and ESCaped right away. So I tried to search for some solutions, I've read about trying to reseat cpu heatsink (so I did) and turning off the error messages in bios (but that won't solve my problem, so I didn't do that) and some other tips that didn't seemed useful for my problem. After reseating it the problem with message dissappeared. After some time it came back. So I just reseated heatsink again. This is happening over and over again for about a year now. Sometime it lasted fixed 1-2 months, sometime 1 week, 2 days, etc, etc. Now to the issues that brought me here actually. About half year ago or more, I started to get 0x00000124 STOP bsod's. As I figured out they are caused by that bios message with new cpu. After that year I became lazy to reseat heatsink all the time, so I was just skipping it by F1 in and ESC'ed out and when I was doing that, those 124 stop bsod's were happening. When reseated, message dissappered and no bsod's happened. About a month ago or so, bsod's became more serious. I started to get various bsod's/crashes where suddenly screen goes black and pc restarts (sometimes bios shows and win boots, sometimes it doesn't as I said before). Reseating heatsink doesn't help anymore in preventing bsod's. In addition to the 124 stop's I'm now getting some new different bsod's, that I never had before. Still most of the times blue screen doesn't show up and also most of the times minidumps are not created. So I have few of them at the moment (will add when new are created). Last week or two when Win boots up, pc pretty much everytime crashes in like 5-10 minutes after booting. After that other bsod's/crashes are completely random. They happen while playing games, while browsing internet or when pc is idle. I also have photos of about 3 bluescreens that stayed on screen till I hard reseted pc, so I can send them if needed.

PC will be 5 years old in 3 months. So about 4 years without a problem. Anything in PC is NOT overclocked in any way, everything is on stock settings and controlled by bios/drivers. BIOS is updated to latest version, graphics card drivers also. In fact, everything that was needed to be installed 2 years ago, when I was reinstalling Windows, I downloaded the latest versions from internet (I mean the hardware drivers now, like chipset, soundcard drivers, etc.). There are no newer versions now as the hardware is old. I tried memtest86 (2 tests with over 10 passes), cpu and graphics stress tests (no bsod's/crashes druing tests), CHKDSK, SFC (didn't repaired anything), everything completed without any errors or problems. Im including zip's with 5 latest dumps and also some dumps from May. Thanks for help. Im sorry for this super long text and my english too. TLDR Im having problems with a lot of random bsod's/crashes after reapplying thermal paste, during last month more of them than ever. For more info read text above.
