    How old is your motherboard?

    If you'd like we could try several things, but this problem has some causes including a failing motherboard if I'm not mistaking.

    I don't think there is another way to test the motherboard then replacing it.

    Unfortunately, I am not really an expert with these kind of problems. There are several things to try, but I know just a few of them.

    I am not sure if you have tried this and if it helps, but it might be worth it trying

    System File Check

    Please try following:

    • Open an admin command prompt
    • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
    • When it finished reboot your system
    • Open again an admin command prompt
    • Enter sfc/scannow again


    If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation", please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
    System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.
