    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?
