I?m not sure if the mobo is at fault here or not but I?ve been having this issue for about 6 months now. After the bios windows logo pops up and begins to boot for about 5 seconds and then screens go black and the pc locks up
Most recently upgraded I?ve done to my system was new ram and a 5900x cpu (from a 2700x) about a year ago.
It started locking up maybe once every couple weeks then a few times a week and now every time I turn it off after it?s been sitting for a while. Power and reset buttons are unresponsive so I have to flip the switch on the PSU most times it will boot up fine after that but sometimes I have to do that a few times before it will boot. I?ve searched high and low and still haven?t found what exactly it causing this. I?ve found a few others with the same mobo that have the same issue and they don?t know why either.
Has anyone else had this issue? Or know how to fix or know why?

I would open up a support ticket with ASRock:" rel="nofollow -

If you have links to others experiencing the same issue, include those too. Anything
like this is always helpful for them to know. If it is a common issue of some kind
they will appreciate being made aware of it (if they are not already).

Good luck.
