I had my computer built for over a month now and this is the first time i ran into a situation like this and I'm unsure if it has something to do with Windows or my ram.

I was using my computer for work that I had to do before midnight and randomly, my entire screen froze and i was unsure what happened. My mouse and keyboard apparently weren't connected.

I looked at my motherboard and noticed the yellow LED that was being displayed from my motherboard, letting me know something was going on with my ram. I tried resetting my computer using the reset button but that didn't help since it turn off my monitor and didn't posted from there.

I turned off my power supply, which helped and hasn't happened since last night thankfully, and that did the trick. I turned my computer 5 minutes later and everything was functioning properly. i checked my bios to make sure my ram was in default settings and it was.

One thing i did notice upon turn on my computer again was that when it booted into windows, it prompted me a statement saying "updating your system" followed by window updates that were being completed.

I'm unsure what the problem could've been because I want to avoid this from happening again. Any thoughts to what could've caused the problem.

Ryzen 7 2700x

Try reseating your ramsticks, running memory checking tools as memcheck or memtes86, running sfc /scannow, and if you're still not sure you could also run a lot of other diagnostic tools.
