Hello first poster here,

Recently, I've been having issues with my gaming PC. Sometimes after putting it to sleep, the PC will not turn on, no fans, no lights, almost like it's dead. The only way to fix the issue is to reach around the back and flip the power supply off and on again (which I hate doing). I'd like to also mention that this PC was built by me about 2 years ago in October 2017 with all brand new store-bought parts. I only use this machine for school work and gaming. I practice safe browsing, I don't download anything questionable, and I treat my computer with love and respect. I'm not sure what could be causing the issue at this point. Also, today was the worst boot issue of all. It started out not booting as previously mentioned and I reached behind and toggled the power switch on and off only to get a black screen stating that the BIOS settings were reset to default settings. I had to go back into the BIOS and reconfigure my fan settings and enable XMP for my ram. I'm worried a part may be failing slowly. Thanks for any advice. My specs are posted below

I would have suspected the PSU but that Corsair is very good quality.

Having said that if you can try a different PSU as a test, you can probably leave it outside the case and just swap all the power leads over.

Yeah I just took my pc and dusted the heck out of it (even though it wasnt even bad because I dust it often) and sprayed compressed air through the PSU just in case some dust was shorting it out in away to give it the on signal. Im kinda thinking it might be the MOBO. I just dont understand why the cmos would reset without ME doing it.
