    Random restarts

    Version 20H2(OS Build 19042.685)
    My PC would randomly restart whether it is in idle, playing games, or watching videos on Youtube.
    I checked the Event viewer and it would give me bug check code for 126 (0x7E in hex), which relates to SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

    Any help would be appreciated

    Hello ACT485 and welcome to TenForums!

    Unfortunately all the crashes are not creating crash dump files, neither is there a record in the logs of any bugcheck codes.

    I would start by ensuring that all drivers are up to date on your motherboard - go via the motherboard website - don't use 3rd party driver update software.

    There looks to be one newer BIOS update you can try - but don't install the beta version.

    Run diagnostic checks on the hardware

    Memtest86 for the RAM
    HDTune for the drives

    Post screen shots of the results.
