Manjaro Linux keeps crashing

I bought some new hardware components for my PC a few weeks ago. Among them an AMD Ryzen 7 3700x processor, an MSI X570-A Pro motherboard and 32GB G.Skill Aegis DDR4-3000 DIMM memory. Unfortunately, the last few days I could hardly work on the computer without it crashing just a few minutes after booting.

Then nothing worked, the mouse pointer stopped and the only thing I could do was to press the reset button to restart. Now the question arose, where the error was. The processor, the memory, or maybe the motherboard? Since I also regularly update the kernel of my system, I thought that the error could also be here. So I uninstalled the newest kernel to test if the system runs more stable with an older kernel.

Under Manjaro this can be done in a few simple steps. Just open the “Manjaro Settings Manager” and go to the kernels. Here you can see which kernels are currently installed and which one is currently running.

Installed and Active Linux Kernel

So I uninstalled kernel 5.14.0-0. Now my system is running kernel 5.10.61-1 again and it runs just fine. So the problem really was with the kernel.
