Recently purchased Powerspec G906, sudden out-of-the-blue RGB rainbow LED cycling issues



Recently purchased a Powerspec G906 from Microcenter in Dallas. Awesome machine, no issues with setup and has been running like a dream. When I first got it, I installed Razer Synapse and was able to set my LEDs to a nice static blue. A few months have gone by and this morning when I woke up yesterday, the LEDs were cycling a terrible rainbow pattern. Synapse can no longer connect to ASROCK, and even going into the BIOS and telling it to turn off the LEDs does not work. It's so bright I am having to throw a blanket over the computer. I'm not sure what else I can do. Something apparently bad has happened and now I cannot turn off the RGB LEDs. It's basically a brand new box too.

Things I've tried:


Shutting system down

Shutting system down and unplugging for 10 minutes

Reinstalling Synapse

Turning off the RGB LEDs via the Advanced Settings in the BIOS. No changes to BIOS have any impact. 

Any suggestions? I work primarily in the dark so the cycle lighting is super distracting and I have apparently lost control of my own machine. I've barely had the machine but a few months.
