Please help as I'm on the verge of just getting rid of this thing.
I recently built this pc a month ago during black Friday and here are the specs:
Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
MOBO: MSI Z390-A PRO
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB 2x8 DDR4-3000
Storage: Western Digital 3TB
GPU: GTX 1070 Ti SC
Case: Corsair 200R
PSU: Corsair RMx 650
OS: Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit
During the first few weeks whenever I turned it on, it would just keep turning on and turning off repeatedly and I would wait it out until it finally fully turned on.
Later on when I tried turning it on, it would still keep doing the same thing except now I couldn't wait it out until it fully turned on, so I then removed one of the ram sticks in order for it to turn on, then I had to shut it down and reinsert it again and it worked fine.
Jump to a few days prior to now, my computer randomly restarted?/shut down? when I was playing a game of Battlefield 1 and my screen went completely blank and nothing was loading up, but my computer was still on and I attempted to push keys on my keyboard and move my mouse in attempt for it load back up or anything, but nothing worked, so I once again had to remove and reinsert one of the ram sticks
Then finally later on, the same thing happened but now, it wasnt just a weird shutdown, it was just an abrupt restart now.
I thought one of the Ram/DIMM slots were broken so I tried removing one of them and just kept casually using my computer normally, and yet just as I expected, my computer still randomly restarted.
Also earlier on I overclocked my cpu to 4.4ghz and my ram to 3000mhz with the xmp and oc genie options, and I thought they were possibly being overheated which was causing the restarts, so i disabled xmp and oc genie on both, but yet still i got random restarts.
I've already updated my BIOS and I dont know what else to do. Any help would be really appreciated. I spent a lot on this and I dont want all of it to just go to waste like this. I've seen solutions such as not possibly installing windows 10 fully/correctly, not installing drivers correctly and other things but Im just not sure what exactly it is and its frustrating me
