    Hello @GabTheScripter

    I would like to suggest you to check below Troubleshooting steps.

    1. Turn off your PC and cleanup or remove one of RAM modules if you have multiple RAM modules.
    2. Unplug any devices connected to this PC other than mouse , keyboard and Monitor.
    3. Reset BIOS to default values.
    4. Boot using Windows installation disk and start command prompt and type below command. sfc /scannow
      chkdsk C:/ /f /r
      chkdsk D:/ /f /r DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    When available update the progress with step #1.

    Please display the test that was ran. short generic versus long generic?

    Which is the Windows disk drive?

    Boot to the BIOS > post images of drive IDE, ACHI and RAID settings.

    Please clean install WIndows 10 using English as the default language.
    Do not install any drivers or applications.
    Make sure that all partitions are deleted and that the drive is unallocated before installing Windows.

    Run Memtest86+for 8 or more continuous passes.

    The test can take substantial time so run overnight.
    Post images of the results into this thread or use share links.

    Each Memtest86+ version has been revised.

    Why not use the latest version 5.31b or 5.01?

    If possible run the latest version for 8 or more passes.

    Yes, a flash drive that will boot from a USB port.

    On a working computer create a bootable Ubuntu flash drive:
    https://ubuntu.com/tutorials/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows#1-overview

    Once this flash drive has been made download and install onto this flash drive:
    HP diagnostics UEFI version 8.3.0.0:
    https://www.hp.com/us-en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/pc-diags.html

    When completed the flash drive will have only Ubuntu and HP diagnostics UEFI.

    How old are the RAM modules?
    Had they all been in use when the computer was last functioning normally or are they recently replaced RAM?

    Make sure that Memtest86+ runs for 8 or more passes.
    The more the passes the better the testing environment.
    There have been tests where it takes passes into the 20's to find malfunctioning RAM.
