Cpu: AMD Ryzen 5 5500x
Mobo: ROG Strix B550-E Gaming (Latest Bios)
GPU 1070
RAM 2x8 16GB
PSU seasonic focus 650w
samsung mvme 1tb

The first 4months of using my computer booting up my computer is fast even with the fast boot option disabled, but then suddenly it started boot up really slow and it show code 61 on my mobo.
I tried clearing the cmos by removing the battery (doesn't work)
Tried unplugging all the usb then boot it up (doesn't work)
new bios (doesn't work) then clear cmos again (doesn't work)
RAM diagnose (doesn't work) then Re-seating the RAM(also the GPU) then to using only one RAM Then trying different slots (doesn't work)
and now I am having random shutdowns after the new bios update.

Please help.

NVRAM initialisation = Code 61
try unplugging USB devices - it can be caused by them, if it fixes, slowly add them back to find cause

long ago it was caused by a USB hub in a monitor, for instance

could help to run memtest on ram
Try running memtest86 on each of your ram sticks, one stick at a time, up to 4 passes. Only error count you want is 0, any higher could be cause of the BSOD. Remove/replace ram sticks with errors. Memtest is created as a bootable USB so that you don’t need windows to run it

try replacing CMOS battery?
After lots of searching.. the error is CMOS related. I removed CMOS battery and system booted right away!!! Replaced battery and system takes 20 minutes to boot.
