My computer (motherboard ASUS ROG Strix z370-e gaming) just decided to act up... Yesterday i've shut it down (opting in to install Windows updates in the process). Today when I started it up it initially started booting but seems to have frozen during the Windows boot up spinning cursor. After that, it stopped turning on at all...

What happens when I turn it on is as follows:
  • Power on LED is up.
  • Starts normally, fans start working, logo on the side of the video card lights up.
  • The, in quick succession, yellow and red LEDs go up and down (those are AFAIK, CPU and DRAM LEDs)
  • At this point the motherboard powers off for ~3s, then the whole process repeats
  • Power button no longer is able to turn it off, I have to unplug the power cable.
The manual says that LEDs being on indicate a problem but these LEDs flash and turn down!

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :(
