Computer suddenly stopped working and turns into a black screen. Orange light is flashing from asus rog strix b450f mobo.

I was using my computer and it suddenly shut down and the motherboard was flashing orange light. I crossed out that the ram and gpu were fine since I was able to see a booting screen of the uefi screen. I can go into the uefi fine, but when I try to boot up my m.2 ssd, it doesn't work. I figured it was an os problem. I secured erased my ssd and tried to boot up with a bootable usb since the usb worked earlier, but now it runs into the same problem again. This time it had a white light, but when I restarted it went to normal booting mobo screen and then straight to a black screen with orange flashing lights. Someone please help!

Have you tried reflashing your bios? Also you might try reseating the ram a couple times.

Where is the orange light flashing from?

The motherboard has a set of debug / troubleshooting LEDs; is it one of those?

The yellow looks A LOT like orange.

I checked the manual and it said DRAM.

I tried rebooting it with a bootable usb to see if that works. It won't load in windows at all.

Your RAM stick(s) are faulty then.

You'll need to find out if one (or more) of your RAM sticks died or something.

Test one stick at a time to rule out the faulty one.

I decided to take it to microcenter because I tried the one stick at a time. They discovered it wasn't the ram at fault, instead my cpu was at fault. Thank you for all the help !
