Help!
A couple hours ago I was playing Valorant when all of a sudden my computer froze, naturally I thought it just crashed so I forced shut it down. Although, when I tried to turn it back on it booted up pass the motherboard screen and into the window where I enter my pin to access my computer, it suddenly froze. So of course I rebooted but now, its stuck on the motherboard screen entirely.

I researched fixes and I've tried all but one. These didn't work
  1. I unplugged my computer and waited around 30 seconds and replugged
  2. I took out one ram stick and tried to reboot
  3. I switched the ram sticks from one dimm slot to another
  4. I reset the CMOS with a screwdriver
  5. I took out the motherboard battery with the pc unplugged waited 30 seconds, put everything back in
The only other solution I've found was to completely reinstall windows. Would this solve the issue or is this another issuley entirely that revolves around the hardware of the computer.

Thank you for reading and any help is appreciated!

Usually whenever the pc doesn't go further then the bios splashscreen

it's the boot drive that has an issue, please try another hdd/ssd and it will probably work

as the first thing your pc does after the splash screen is use your hdd/ssd bootdrive to load the OS

You cant install windows if you can't get past the motherboard screen.
Can you enter the Bios without it freezing?
The only way I was able to enter the BIOS was by disconnecting the ssd. Although, when I tried rebooting and then reconnecting the ssd when the pc was off I was only able to go into the BIOS.

Another thing to note, in the boot sequence tab, the only available drive listed was "Windows Boot Manager."

I came across something like this before, and it was a problematic motherboard. Do you have debug LEDs and if so, is there anything wrong there?
I don't see any unusual LEDs that I haven't previously seen, just the normal red light that flashes and then remains on is the only light that I see on the motherboard.

I have another hdd, should I just install windows on my usb flash drive and just proceed with that one hard drive.

As for the other ssd, which has the Windows installation, would it be best if I just copied the saved files I have on that one on my laptop and just format it completely?

The hitch can arise because of several reasons: System RAM: A bad memory (maybe due to overclocking or an overvoltage) can originate this hiccup in your computer. You could also encounter the annoying glitch if one of your memory slots is faulty.

i would test it with the HDD to see if that is the issue, if it is the issue, i would do a data backup from your ssd, if it let's you
