Power recently cut off and now my PC freezes during the spinning dots. Starting up in recovery mode only tells me “preparing automatic recovery” and leads to a black screen. My PC was plugged into a surge protector.

I’m not sure if it helps, but you can take a look at my post history to see the other problems that my PC has had with the same power supply and motherboard for a few years now.

EDIT: Apparently the old posts don’t show. My old RAM and SSD have died on this motherboard and PSU.

mobo and psu:
mobo - MSI H170 GAMING (I do have an Asrock z270 taichi that I... sadly haven’t installed yet)

PSU - EVGA 550 supernova g2

Hello Xerrlow,

I am sorry you have issues with your PC. The RAM, SSD and PSU are key components and it is obvious that is the issue. I would suggest to get new ones.

Hope this helps,
Naly A
