Any recent solutions to this issue? My PC is running well with 2 RAM sticks. After shutdown PC won’t boot. It does restart, just won’t come on after a hard shutdown. Lights and fans turn on, but doesn’t boot to OS so I have to hard shutdown l. If I remove a RAM stick, I can get the PC to boot to OS. Then shutdown again, same issue. Add back the RAM stick I took out earlier and it boots again.

I disabled quick start up and ran memtest overnight with no errors. Did a fresh windows reset. BIOS is up to date.

Im thinking it’s MOBO or PSU related

The major components I have are as follows: i7 4790k, Gtx 1070, Corsair 850W PSU, gigabyte z87x-hd3 MOBO, Corsair vengeance ddr3 RAM

I’m trying to get it in good running condition to sell it.
