PC boots about 1/4th of time

My pc boots randomly when I start my pc. When I push the 'on' button the fans start spinning, and my motherboard gets power, but my screen doesn't get signal.

I think my pc boots every time with only 4gb ram instead of 8gb.


AMD Ryzen 3 1200

Corsair VS450

MSI Geforce GTX 1050 gaming X 2GB DDR5

MSI B350M Gaming Pro

Crucial 2x 4GB stick (in kit)

please help.

OK, some things you may want to try.

First update the Bios version you have.

Second try and see if that fixed it.

If Second step failed , Get a new set of ram. Try DDR4 ram with a matching bus speed.

I have noticed that with this motherboard the Ram bus speed is kind of up in the air. I would do some research to get the proper ram bus speed and this could correct the issue. Please update me once you have tested the steps

I updated my BIOS to the newest version and this worked. I had this problem for a long time and updated the bios a couple times, but I guess they changed it in the last version..

Thank you a lot for helping me!


No problem. Glad it worked : )
