When I activate OC Genie and turn on the pc on the onboard display it shows me an error that says "AE" and it doesn't show me anything on the monitor, After that, when deactivating and entering windows, the amd adrenaline software usually says that it has returned to an original configuration due to a watman error. Does anyone know what could be going on? Before I always had it active and I had no problem. but for a while now it won't let itself be activated.

MSI Mpower Z87
Ram Corsair 1333mhz 2*8Gb
XfX Amd Rx 570
Intel I7 4770k
1TB Hard Disk 7200Rpm seagate
500Gb SSD Crucial

OC Genie is probably messing with the Baseclock of the CPU and as you have been using it a long time there will have been degradation as AE is its struggling to see your GPU as its also Overclocking the PCI-E Bus too as its Tied to the CPU's Base Clock and it will be erroring as its probably Degraded in the PCI-E controller itself.

OC Genie (on other boards, it's also called Creator Genie or GameBoost) is generally not advised, see here. You don't want a completely generalized overclocking function that knows nothing about your specific CPU's capabilities to go to work on your system. Because pretty much the only way for MSI to make sure it works with all the different grades of CPU that are out there is to use heavily increased voltages. So the only way to safely OC is to do it manually, optimizing it to your specific CPU and making sure not to use excessively high voltages. You cannot trust on such a coarse and primitive auto-OC function as OC Genie.

Of course, your system is also approaching 10 years of age. After that time, especially electrolytic capacitors can degrade significantly in their properties. While they have used none of them on your board (which has very nice components for that time), they will have used plenty of them in the PSU. So after this amount of time, your PSU, if it wasn't a very high-end model with 10 years of warranty (but i think that trend only started later), has likely deteriorated in its performance, in regards to things like voltage ripple and voltage regulation stability. So that's another thing to consider.

Thank you both very much. I hadn't thought about it but it makes sense about the degradation of the electrical components, it could be those of the video card since the power supply is basically new and is 1000w EVGA gold. but if it could be something from the motherboard, thank you very much anyway

If your PSU is new and a good model, then it probably has nothing to do with that. So just disable OC Genie and see how it behaves then. As i said, that option is not good.
