A few weeks ago I got this problem where I would get no display and I fixed it temporarily by removing the ram stick and the power cable, draining the power by holding my power button for 30 seconds. But after a few days I did not get anything no matter how many times I tried this, I ran a memtest before that for 4 passes and got no errors, I even tried completely disassembling my entire setup and reassembling it to no avail.
I decided to RMA my motherboard and got it back today, I assembled everything and I got the display, but now... It randomly freezes while I am doing something (browsing, gaming etc). And after I force reboot my system, there's no display and no power to my peripherals (keyboard, mouse, ethernet etc) either.

These are the specs btw :

ASRock H310CM-HDV
Intel i5-9400F
Asus Strix GTX 1060 6gb
GSkill Ripjaws 8gb DDR4 3000 MHz
Corsair VS450 PSU

What can I do to troubleshoot further? Please help

Update : I managed to boot into the bios and found out that the motherboard was running old version of bios. I was thinking about updating it but it freezed in the bios. Probably an hardware issue?
