So I bought a prebuilt PC last year, it didn't have any problems until a few weeks ago. Every time I turn my AC on at night and if my PC is fully shut down, the next morning when I try to turn on my PC it goes into a boot loop.
The RGB in the PC turns on but the LED indicator for the hard drive being utilized doesn't. Normally that turns on as well while the PC motherboard logo shows up. Instead the PC just turns itself off and tries to restart and it goes on for a few cycles. To get it to start I have to hold the power button down and force it to restart a few times before it actually boots up into the motherboard logo and then into windows. Does anyone know what part might be effected by cold temperatures? I keep my AC at around 65-70 degrees Fahrenheit so its not absolute tundra either.
Here is the spec-sheet with its parts:
Processor: AMD Ryzen 3700x
Storage: SSD (has an M.2 and a SATA)
RAM: 32gb of DDR4 3000
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 2070 super
Motherboard: Asrock B450M/ac
Cooling: AIO Cooler master MasterLiquid Lite
Power supply: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650W
Greetings. There wouldn't be an issue with running an AC at that temp with PC parts, you'd have to be at or below freezing for cold temps to be a concern.
I'd speculate it's an issue with the boot drive first thing based on what you are describing. If you're still able to get into Windows, you could try to run some checks on the drive - https://www.howtogeek.com/134735/how-to-see-if-your-hard-drive-is-dying/ to perhaps confirm this.
Another thought is see if you can boot up the PC with Windows on another drive (just temporarily) and see if the issues persist.
My boot drive is on the M.2, does it have the same problems as what you are describing?
I'm sorry, I'm not quite sure what you are asking in this post - I would suggest to try the above methods to help determine if you have an issue with your SSD.
