There is another user on here having a similar problem. It may be SSD related. See Hard Drive - Turn Off Hard Disk After Idle or Never and set it to never. See if it resolves the issue.

The other user pointed out that the HDD should still be set as able to turn off when idle, but we should see if this works before looking into that.

I then shut down and took one stick of RAM out. and continued on my normal operation.

a little while later I got this one. It wasnt an IRQL one tho it was MEMORY_MANAGMENT

I am going to switch RAM sticks now and continue operation again and see if I get a Screen.

Good step to do the Memory swap. If that does not work, and since many of your previous crashes indicated possible problems related to the SSD, you may consider a power cycle of the SSD.
  • The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.
    1. Power off the system.
    2. Remove all power supplies (ac adapter then battery for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.
    4. Reconnect all power supplies (battery then ac adapter for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
    5. Turn on the system and enter the BIOS (see your manual for the steps to enter the BIOS)
    6. Let the computer remain in the BIOS for 20 minutes.
    7. Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
    8. Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
    9. Replace the drive connection(s) and then do steps 4-8 again.
    10. Repeat steps 1-4.
    11. Start your computer normally and run Windows.

    The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community

    While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.
