Ryzen Windows 10 Random BSOD Fix – Mouse Becomes Unresponsive, System Slows to a Crawl, and Then Crashes

Ryzen Windows 10 Random BSOD Fix

For the longest time, I could not figure out why I couldn't get Windows 10 to consistently install or run in a stable fashion for longer than a few minutes on my Ryzen 1700X or my Ryzen 3900X AMD CPU. 

After trying everything I could think of and pulling my hair out, I found a simple solution that appears to have worked!  Simply disable Link State Power Management in your Power Setting's active power plan.

Go to the "Control Panel" -> "Power Options" -> Click on the "Change plan settings" link for your selected power plan -> click on the "Change advanced power settings" link -> navigate to the "PCI Express" category -> find the "Link State Power Management" option -> set it to "Off" (for both on battery and plugged in).

In general, there are several reasons why a computer can suffer a catastrophic Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) issue, but in my case, it turns out I just needed to adjust some power settings to compensate for a storage controller bug found in some solid state hard drives.  Thanks Reddit users for helping me find the fix!
