From a cold boot, the system gets past the POST screen. Boot sequence is successful up until after the Windows 10 loading screen, of which inconsistently (1 out of 7 attempts average) results in a black screen afterwards. Monitors do not detect input. All fans are spinning – system is non-responsive to any input afterwards (keyboard is not lit up).

System was newly built 3 months ago. Thoroughly stability tested and ran issue free for 2 months (this issue has been happening in the past month).



* Windows 10

* RAM @ 3200Ghz

* EVGA 750W B2

* Ryzen 1600 @ 3.75Ghz

* MX 200 SSD

* GTX 1070

* MSI B350 Tomahawk





Only workaround so far is to perform a forced shutdown via power button and turn the system back on (and hope for the best). So far, the issue has not persisted twice in a row on boot attempts.


I had a thought to downclock the CPU to default (and RAM) as well, however I would figure that with instabilities, they would not allow the system to POST. In addition, the issue appears to be new.


I also have Event Viewer Logs from “System” events available as needed – not sure where to upload these if they are helpful.

Any ideas on what the issue might be?

have you tried reseting your BIOS to defaults? Particularly, have you tried booting with memory at stock (2133/2400 MHz). Do you have the latest BIOS version on the board? Which RAM do you have? Is it on the QVL?
