Every time I restart my PC it doesn't boot back up. This is annoying when I have to restart due to an update. I then shut down the PC and start it again and it either turns on, shuts off by itself and turns on again or boots up. I think the culprit might be the RAM because when it does eventually boot up again it lowers my RAM speed to 2133 mhz. After this I then have to shut it down again and go into the BIOS and set the RAM speed back to 3200mhz. Anyone have any similar experience to this? How would I go about fixing this issue?

Two things...

I would power down.....and replace the CMOS battery (this could be why your RAM speed is resetting).

As far as why it doesn't restart....I would first suspect the PSU.
What are you system specs?
How old is the PSU?

It says 750 on the side, I think it's a pretty solid prebuilt which is why i bought it. The only thing bad about it imo is the cpu cooler, my cpu gets pretty hot. Maybe it's just because the cpu has a lot of cores though idk. Would the CMOS battery be the main culprit then if the PSU isn't?

Download and run HWInfo.
Check the voltages in the MB section.
If they vary 5% from the 12, 5 and 3.3 V numbers....you need a new power supply.
You can also check your temps with HWInfo.

When you first start HWInfo.....make sure the sensors option is checked.
Then in the upper left...(I'm going from memory) you either click on that "sensors" icon....or you click on motherboard. You will get a different window with all the data.

The voltages are good IN THAT PIC.

HWINfo records the high and low voltages...so leave HWInfo running and run the PC.....run something that will load it up....like a demanding game. Then look at the voltages again.

Also....it is showing your CPU maxed out at 74C.....which is fine....but we don't want it maxing out much higher than that.....as in 90C would be bad.

86.3 max is on the hot side but I don't think it's causing the problem with restarting.

The PSU voltages look good...so I'm tending to think that's not the issue either.

It may actually be the ram. You could try it with just one stick and see if the problem goes away.
