    So in my infinite stupidity I gave destiny 2 another try, game crashed, got a blue screen, pressed reset button, computer reboots, I click on hwinfo64, 20% orso into loading this, I hear some kind of pop and computer freezes. results in me slightly panicking.

    I press reset again, does nothing, couple times more, still nothing, me starts freaking out. So at this point, i hold down the power button and after 4 sec, pc turns of, so I turn the pc on again, fans start spinning like crazy, no image, pc shuts down again after 20-30 sec, and restarts only to do the same again a couple of times.

    Then in the end some screen popped up with the message "secure backup uefi B -> A"

    After that it booted again, I rebooted to check/adjust bios, that went ok, and for the moment my pc seems to be running ok again, but I'm kind of worries now that this might happen again or even get worse, anyone have anything similar happen or have anyadvise?

    That message was stating the bios was corrupted and it’s copying the backup to main. At least that’s what some of the older ASRock ones stated. I’d still be a bit worried about the pop and back up everything just in case.

    A cockaroacha or some other unsavory critter stepped across the wrong wires in your PSU and made it mad for a bit.

    Start sniffing parts for burnt odors emanating.

    You can also review windows event logs. The pop could have been tied to sound of speakers not necessarily the system itself. I noticed that when I do a sudden power off my speakers also make a pop sound.

    I checked the logs, other then a couple erros due to an unexpected restart I have 167 bitlocker driver errors in less then 2 min but that might have been my raid array that was not set correctly yet due to the bios flash, bios was back to AHCI.

    bitlocker?

    There's your problem.
    Drive encryption is nothing but trouble.

    I don't use bitlocker, like I said I think it's due to the raid that was not set up yet. Anyways, got my bios updated to the latest version 1.70 from a couple days ago and so far the system seems stable again.

    Won't try destiny 2 again until they patch the crashes.
