Computer fails to start or wake up from sleep

Sometimes my computer crashes, fails to wake up from sleep or fails to start. By crash I don’t mean it shuts down, but it basically gets a black screen and stays at that zombie state. A few times I could open tty by Ctrl+Alt+F3 on the black screen when I try to wake it up and then exit from tty to i3wm by keyboard shortcuts, but I can’t do it when it fails to start at all. I think these two might be different problems because of this reason, but I don’t know.
Also, random crashes don’t happen too often. It mostly fails to wake up or open.

Here is the errors from the last time my computer failed to open:

I would suggest updating your UEFI Bios. The latest is still in beta but there are 8 updates newer than your current version. You could update to the one just before the latest beta version. Then when the beta is out in final you could update to that one after.

Thanks, doing it now, I’ll write here if the problem continues.
