    This case is becoming like the same which I had with my HP Pavillion desktop. After adding a NVIDIA 9500gt graphics card and adding more RAM, the computer became extremely unstable which led to me and my dad phoning HP several times and still the issue was not resolved. Finally tired out of it, me and my dad both decided to change the motherboard and several RAM sticks of the whole Desktop for around 150$. At first the problem seem to be solved but after a while again the bsods with different error messages started cropping up. Now what he did was he removed the graphics card and the additional RAM and voila the computer was extremely stable again without any BSOD. Last month when I was home, I again plugged in the GPU and after 2-3 usage there was the BSOD. I consulted with a techy friend of mine as well last time and he suggested me to try and use a new powerful PSU as the PSU which currently there provides only with 250W whereas the minimum of the GPU is 350W. And my desktop also has AMD processor although old. Now, when I ll go back during my summer vacations I will try the PSU solution on my desktop and see what happens.

    Furthermore, what I am seeing is that you are using Hyper-V but the support for it has been disabled in the Firmware i.e BIOS. Enable this as well.

    So before, buying a new CPU, I would advise you to go to a computer repair shop and see if you could get a new and higher capacity Power Supply Unit temporarily. Also, what is the wattage of your PSU?

    my power supply is already upgraded from 350W to a 500W and my CPU uses 95W

    Do one thing, try starting the PC with minimal hardware configuration i.e. remove your RAM sticks (Keep only the minimum amount), remove your GPU, remove your external cards such as Network Adapters etc and see if you are still getting the BSODs.

    Post back the results.

    what exactly would I be able to run if I remove the GPU?

    Without using your external GPU, you would not be able to play the high end games and do graphical calculations. But, your normal browsing, youtube, videos etc will work absolutely fine. On removing the RAM sticks, the computer will become a bit slow but this is to test it out so as to eliminate further causes.

    I'm confused, according to google searches removing a GPU from a graphics card is delicate because of its size unless I don't plan on using the graphics card but I just can't remove the graphics card because the desktop wouldn't be able to display anything without it.

    Sorry for all the questions, I'm studying Computer Engineer to learn this kind of stuff but apparently none of my classes involve working with actual computer hardware

    Don't think too much - and DON'T remove the actual GPU from the card.
    If your system doesn't have dual graphics (internal/onboard and an external/discrete card), then you can't remove the graphics card (because you won't be able to see anything!)

    As we don't expect people to remove the GPU from the card, we've grown accustomed to referring to the video card as the GPU. It saves a few keystrokes when typing - and we're usually rushing to help, so we need to save as much time as we can.

    Good luck!

    Took a look at the inside of my desktop, the only only extra hardware I could remove that I haven't yet is my ram (theres 2 ram cards) but i already tested that with memtest, all 8 tests, and there were no error
