    BSOD Possible linked to network adapter?

    I had an old ws parked in the garage since 2017 (cus he was giving me lots of BSOD headaches since Win10) and now with lockdown I decided to give it to my daughter to do her schooling in order to save wife's notebook. It is an old machine dating almost (old)10 years with 2 SSDs (from OCZ, long gone) with Win10 and Linux (Ubuntu distro). I still have the same issues, one or two BSOD daily and I would give it a last chance, before trashing it. It runs on a Phenom II 1090T cpu, and you if guys enlighten me and tell me that the issue is the mb, which could be a possibility, I do have another one (brand new in box Gigabyte GA-78LMT), I would swap/replace it.
    I have had driver issues with the network card in the past (I had an add on from Trendnet) and I had disabled the one on the MB. Now I enabled the one from the MB and I removed the add on. My daughter's online schooling started with Linux to avoid the issues (BSOD) I had in the past with Win10, but she had issues with skype so we went back to Win10. A couple of days later we started having BSODs again.
    I also noticed that I have frequent loss of connectivity with Win10. I replaced the CAT6 cable and the problem persists, until it would go away by miracle. No connectivity issues with Linux tho. Realtek diagnostic tool pointed at the cable, which was replaced. Different link speeds reported during testing, 100 & 1000Mb. There isn't bootloader installed. Boot SSD gets selected (better say OS) by pressing F8 during booting. From Linux I can boot to Win10, but not when the SSD with Win10 gets selected to boot. This isn't important cus booting isn't the issue. BSOD is the issue together with loss of connectivity. I have also included 3 pdf files if needed and a file titled NEWEGG-II SPECS, with the hardware specs of the system. My Windows version is: 20H2 (OS Build 19042.867). Any assistance and suggestions would be more than appreciated. Thank u.
