Computer Acting Strangely After Switching to Ryzen

_Stripes_

18 months ago

Hi all. So I bought myself some new parts to get rid of my i3 and got a Ryzen 5 2600X along with an Asus Strix B-350F Gaming with the BIOS updated for Zen 2. Ever since I installed the new motherboard and CPU my computer has been performing weirdly. Raw performance is just fine, though again, it's been doing some odd things.

First thing I noticed was that on boot up, the screen turns on and off around 6 or 7 times before taking me to the boot drive selection screen, which I've been trying to get rid off. Can't seem to figure out how to to remove the Windows partition off of my old hard drive.

Secondly, my Corsair peripherals have been resetting to their default color schemes despite CUE being open.

Thirdly, my mouse locks up for a second or two on the desktop every once in a while. Again, no idea what's causing it. I updated all of my Corsair peripherals and the problem persists.

And lastly, what made me start up a new topic, is that all of my USB devices connected to my computer reset. My Wi-FI adapter, mouse, keyboard, and mousepad. I heard a disconnect sound and a connect sound back to back.

Anyone know what's causing all of this to happen?

Here's my part list

To remove the other partition i suggest a program called Minitool Partition Wizard. You can delete, edit or more partitions with it

After a mobo switch, I strongly advise completely reinstalling Windows.

I did that. Installed Windows fresh onto a 120GB SSD.

Hmm... Have you tried resetting the CMOS?

I haven't. I'll give it a shot tomorrow morning.

I found out there were BIOS updates available. After updating it I think the problems have been solved ^
