back when i used ubuntu some UEFI errors showed when i would boot up but i managed to fix that by installing nvidia drivers, but when i reinstalled ubuntu because i wanted to clean my pc up a bit, the UEFI errors started appearing again, and they didn't go away after i installed the nvidia drivers that time.
Can it maybe have something to do with that?

P.S. I am using the Nvidia ISO for PopOS and i get around 200fps on games so i think it's not nvidia this time...

Also, one more thing i forgot to mention is that back when i used ubuntu (it was installed on HDD) sometimes when i'd boot it up and go to "Disks" it wouldn't show the SSD

i am almost certain that it's not because of cryptswap in particular, because when the error happens it doesn't find the whole ssd as well, like it's not even plugged in or something

send me an email if you can or anyone who can
You're on a forum. Nobody is going to send you private emails. Also, posting your email in a public forum is a bad idea.

maybe there is a bad sector on the drive you you run - fsck
unmount the drive
fsck -y /dev/sdb
Just make sure and replace the /sdb with the correct drive

Please append the contents of
Code:
/etc/default/grub
particularly "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX" need to compare whats in the grub to
Code:
cat /etc/fstab
to see if they are the same
PopOS uses systemd-boot not Grub as OP stated earlier.
popos uses systemd-boot tho
