PC Boot freeze, Cant even format ?!

Maybe it has something to do with the Mobo? 

or RAM.

 

Run MemTest86+ for several complete passes to rule out bad RAM

After that, if the RAM checks out, then it's probably a flaky mobo

Hello everyone

So i build a new PC for my bro and everything went well, high fps 1080p gaming for a week or so....

Then after a Windows 10 update at night, the next day he was playing League of Legends and suddently pc reboots (maybe power outage idk, maybe windows related issue, there was no overheating on any component we make sure we check it every day)

 

After than when we tried to boot the pc but all it does is load till the MSI logo and then freezes (sometimes it says "Preparing Automatic Repair" and other times after 3 hard reboots it is just the MSI logo)
I can get into BIOS just fine.
I tried updating the BIOS, going into an older version, clearing CMOS with the mobo battery method.

Other solutions i tried are, formating PC using a usb key which also freezes at the windows logo

i also tried to switch between the RAM sticks.

 

Specs:
msi x470 gaming pro

msi gtx 1660 super

ryzen 5 3600 (no overclock)

SSD Lexar NS100 128GB

corsair vengeance lpx 16gb 3200mhz (overclocked, also tried stock mhz)

corsair CX Series CX550

BIOS version 7B79v1F (then changed to older 7B79v1E to try it out)

CoolerMaster MasterCase H500 ARGB Case

Windows 10 not registered (i suspect this might have been the issue, but still i formated the pc with the MediaCreationTool a week ago just fine with no problems)

 

If anyone has any idea what is going on i would appreciate your Help
Thank you

Thank you

Could be a bad SSD, pull it out, drop it into a spare system and see if the spare system can format it

Thanks for replying.

if I will be able to boot it then, how can I guess whether problem was with some sort of windows malfunction or ssd hardware issue?

ssd hardware issue?

You can run the SSD manufacturer's software to test the health of the SSD, or use a program like CrystalDiskInfo which, IIRC, can show you the health of the drive.

 

If the SSD is indeed bad, it's unlikely you'll be able to format it however.

Checked out the RAM, it is probably the Mobo... But it is 6 months old so it makes me wonder how can it be faulty... 🤔

These things happen, it's unfortunate, but it happens

Could it somehow be the PSU?

Also a possibility, but typically (though, not always) a failing power supply won't result in a freeze.

Sadly, the only real way to test that is slap a new power supply in and see what happens. Great if you have a spare laying about, not so much if you don't.

In the end after a lot of searching and testing it was a faulty Mobo thanks for the help dude 👌👍

My pleasure, any time, sorry it happened to be the critical part of your system.
