What offset did you try? Can you post all of your settings in detail?
To avoid this in the future, always attempt to give Windows a proper restart after it is forced to be shut down improperly (such as a BSOD or a system lock-up).
In other words, these are the steps to take, whenever possible:
- After the BSOD or lock-up occurs, wait for Windows to start back up.
- When Windows is finished starting up, choose Restart
- Wait for it to finish starting back up
- Reboot into the UEFI BIOS to continue making adjustments.
In other words, when you get a BSOD or a lock-up, take the first opportunity that you can to properly restart Windows. After you can successfully perform a full proper restart, reboot again but this time go straight into the UEFI BIOS to continue making adjustments.
If you cannot do this due to too much instability, then at least do this:

- After the BSOD or lock-up occurs, go straight into the UEFI BIOS
- Temporarily revert back to settings that are known to be stable
- Go into Windows (this is the first time you'll be in Windows after the BSOD or lock-up)
- Once Windows is finished starting up, give it a proper Restart
- Wait for it to restart completely
- Restart again, but now go straight into the UEFI BIOS to continue making adjustments
