So I just built my first computer in 20 years and nearly every time I turn it on after it has been off for a while it will not boot. I can see the motherboard flash screen and then my monitor will tell me there is no signal. Then I will hold the power button until it powers off. After all the fans stop spinning I will turn it back on and 9 times out of 10 it will boot up normally. If not the third boot attempt will work.

Anybody have an idea what is going on? I sometimes wonder if the new Ryzen and Radeon RX 5700 are just too new and not fully supported yet.

Here are my specs:

Is the bios up to date, on the motherboard?
Yes, when I got it the box said it was Ryzen 3000 compatible and would seem to work but I kept getting BSODs so I updated it to the latest and haven't had a problem with BSOD since. There is a newer beta but MSI says:

Description
- Update AMD ComboPI1.0.0.3abb
Note: MSI do not recommend updating the BIOS unless it is necessary

I'm very disappointed in MSI. Wish I would have built with older hardware. After updating the drivers my system started getting the BSOD. I had to re-image my system with a fresh copy of Windows 10 Pro. It is running better but still getting the BSOD. Please help me figure out what is causing this issue. Below are the latest two minidumps from my crashes. Please let me know if I need to provide more info. Thanks

Try these two things:
  1. Try a different GPU
  2. Try a different non-intel boot drive. like a USB stick with installation media over and over.
Trust me it might not be the mobo d:
