Hey Tom's Hardware folks.

I built my first computer recently. I've had a problem with the computer crashing randomly 1-3 times a day. After the computer crashes, it restarts and opens up BIOS automatically. When I try to start the computer up again from there, it fails to recognize boot devices. In order to start my computer up again, I have to shut it down and start it once more and all of a sudden it opens up without any problems.

What should I do? I've updated all of my drivers, I only have 1 SSD with Windows in it and I've made sure all cables are secure and don't come loose. Could the problem arise from a faulty SSD or something else?

SPECS:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
GPU: nVidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super
MoBo: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max
PSU: Corsair CX650M
SSD: Samsung 860 Evo 1TB
Ram: G.Skill SniperX DDR4-3600, 2x8gb


Thanks for your help!

Cheers,
Alex
