So I've been having many crashes for the past few weeks in every game that I play, like Overwatch, Apex Legends, and TF2.
I've tried everything, like using sfc /scannow, dism, and chkdsk. I've updated my OS and all drivers to the newest versions. I've tried reinstalling Windows, resetting the CMOS, and pretty much everything else software-related. All my hardware is not overclocked, and I turned off the XMP profile for RAM (running at 2133).
I am using a Ryzen 5 2600 on a Gigabyte GA-AB350 Gaming, running on the f23d BIOS.
As a last resort, I'm thinking of updating my BIOS. People say that it's risky, as a wrong move can tank your whole system. However, I feel that at this point I have tried everything, so if this doesn't work then I would know for sure that it's a hardware issue.
So how do I flash BIOS? I just know that I can use the Q flash, but how do I keep a saved copy of my current BIOS so that I can return to a safe point if something goes wrong? Also, on the Gigabyte website, it says that the latest F25 BIOS needs to have the latest AMD chipset driver (18.10.20.02), however I cannot find that specific chipset driver on Gigabyte's, or AMD's website...
