Critical Process died and no bootable device found

ALZ 0 Reputation points

I have a computer at my job that just keeps giving the critical process died BSOD and no boot screen after it restarts. No matter what I do, this keeps coming back over and over. I have replaced the SSD and both cables connecting to the SSD, ran everything under the sun, and the issue STILL comes up after a month or two of it running fine. I ran memory tests and even went as far as replacing the memory sticks as well. There's nothing in the event logs that even tells me what is causing it besides that it "Shut off unexpectedly". Does anyone else have any ideas as to what is going on? I've also had the machine hang and then restart suddenly as well.

Unfortunately since this machine has extremely important data/use, I will be unable to post any logs on here. I also absolutely cannot use 3rd party software to check it's integrity (outside of checking SSD health)
