Hello everyone,

I told myself to refrain from asking a forum for help, mostly because I feel like I'm being kind of an annoyance and this is probably a very easy fix which I shamefully can't find.

I'll give some back story to how I came here:
Finally got around to building my own desktop PC, with the following specs:
Asrock B450M Pro
AMD Ryzen 5 1600
Asus RX570 OC
SeaGate Baracuda 1 TB
Team L5 Lite 3D 240GB
Corsair Vengeance 8 gb ddr4 3000mhz
Corsair CX450M

Inter-Tech B42 (shitty case, I know).

I was so happy when I finally got around to building the PC... Even happier that it posted the first time!!
I felt like a king, I had build my first PC all by myself and it was working amazing.

This went on for a week, the PC didn't malfunction in any way whatsoever. There were no signs of bad components or anything.

Until...

Yesterday morning, I started up my PC, nothing out of the ordinary..
Suddenly my internet went out, which was weird because all other systems connected to the same router still had internet. Whilst this was confusing me I noticed that I could not move my mouse! My system froze up on me. for no apparent reason whatsoever.

I thought, this might be some kind of hiccup, I'll let the pc work it out and I'll be patient.
After 5 minutes, it was still as frozen.. I decided to forcefully shutdown the PC by holding the power button. After this... my PC never was the same again.

I tried to reboot the systeem but the system didn't seem to post, I atleast wasn't getting any videosignal whatsoever...

This confused me a lot.. my system was worknig fine for a whole week? what could have gone wrong?

What I tried to fix my computer so far:

- Boot without GPU connecting the monitor to my motherboard​
result:​
nothing... apparently my CPU doesn't have internal graphics.. 😐​

- Remove CMOS Battery to reset BIOS​
result:​
The system seems to somewhat work for a minute after this, sadly.. after that minute the system crashes once again and doesn't post unless I reset the BIOS again...​
- Put the single RAM stick that I have in the second slot because apparently Ryzen likes that better.​
result:​
Doesn't really change a whole lot.​
- Use VFX to select the higher Ghz preset for my RAM​
Result:​
System is even more unstable and blue screens.​
- Remove all other peripherals except for keyboard​
Result:​
nothing noticeable.​
Now I'm out of options...
I'm really not sure what to do.. does anyone have any suggestions? 😪

Have you tried setting your bios settings to default? Did you download any files right before this happened? Did you try using system restore from an earlier date? Did you try doing a memory test? Did you try one stick at a time in all the slots?

Doesn't a CMOS reset do that?
Did you download any files right before this happened?
no
Did you try using system restore from an earlier date?
I can not consistently get acces to the system restore options so no.
Did you try doing a memory test?
No, How do I do so?
Did you try one stick at a time in all the slots?
Yes.
I only have one stick anyway.

Did you remove the power cord to the computer when you removed the battery? Have you tried removeing all peripherals, except mouse and keyboard? Do you have any other ddr4 ram that you can put in just to see if your ram is bad?

I'm not sure what you mean by "battery".. I'm talking about a desktop PC that solely runs on power from an outlet.

yes.
Do you have any other ddr4 ram that you can put in just to see if your ram is bad?
Sadly, no.. This is my first build.
