NEED help! My pc is failing and cant find why!

Hi, I got a pc that since a week ago start failing, it haves sudden reboots or shutdowns, when it turn off the monitor after no use, I move the mouse to get it back again, the monitor turn on but only a black screen comes up, so I need to reboot it manually. Also the mouse and the keyboard fails here an then, I need to unplug and plug it again to get them to work again. Dont know whats going on.. 

My rig is an Asrock extreme 4 z87 mobo, a msi armor gtx 1080 gpu, i7 4770k, 32 gb ram team dark 1333, a psu evga 750 gq, os installed in ssd sandisk 480 gb.

The mobo, core and memory ram are 5 years old, the ssd and psu are 1 year old, and the gtx is one month old.

 

I think is the mobo, however I need any input i can get to be sure whats going.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I think it's the mobo too. A 5 year old ASRock board seems like something that would cause that issue. ASRock's mobos aren't always the most reliable.

I agree with @1kv it's most likely the chioset on the board failing. My ASRock of 5 years just lost practically it's entire chipset. No audio, no USB, no PCIe, but sata worked and I had onboard video so it still booted. Just couldn't do anything

Thanks for your replies @nayman898, @seoz, @1kv, and @Neftex; so all ponts out that I will have to buy a new mobo. Lets hope it really is the problem and all this is solved. I will replied back when I do and tell you how it goes.
