In June of this year I built a new computer.
The only problem I ran into was a frozen mouse which was resolved.
About a month later it occasionally rebooted itself and went on happily.
This increased in the last two weeks and now a further development in that unlike the other times the reboot was after I had logged on it is now doing it on start up.
This can be from a second or two after pressing the start button until it gets to motherboard code AA – and instead of showing the windows log in page it reboots itself. This can happen 3 - 10 times on the run ending up with one of the following happening.
1) Motherboard lights power / start / reset lights on but motherboard code LED out, Neither the case or motherboard buttons activate the system, so requiring me to turn off and then on the power switch. This is happening more and more.
2) Goes into Performing Automatic Repair
3) Goes into Windows Log In.
If the end result is either 1 or 2 it goes back to the issue until eventually, I am able to log in.
I have tried booting with all of the following disconnected
Hard drives other than the C drive connected,
Case fan controller
9pin USB internal extension
USB 3 expansion card.
This did not resolve the issue.
Once logged in it will run anything from a few seconds to all day.
Any Ideas, help or advice will be most welcome.
OS Windows 10 Professional 64bit.
Motherboard - Asus WS C422 Pro/SE When connecting this board as per user guide I connected it to the ATX 24 pin power and to the 8pin EATX power supplies. The motherboard itself was not happy about this and the red LED next to the 6pin EAXT remained lit. As the computer did not boot up I connected that up as well. The user guide indicated its use if only the 8 pin slot was used as against the 8pin and the 24 pin combined. Consequently my motherboard is now connected to the power supply via the three connections.

This also monitors the temperature inside the case via 4 probes
HUBBY7 a 9pin USB2 internal extension by Aquacomputer
Both these items have their own power supply and are independent of the motherboard.
They are connected to the motherboard via the 9 pin USB2 connection in order that I can monitor and control them via its software - Aquasuite.
WD 1 TB SSD M2 this sits in its own place on the motherboard and contains the OS
WD 2TB SATA - Down Loads and Applications
WD 4TB SATA - All files – music etc. No program software.
WD 4TB SATA – All files and library for photographs, editing etc No program software
Software uploading on start up
Peripherals activated on start up
Two 27” monitors
One 8” monitor – to constantly display the aquasuite
One USB 3 external Hub running two pieces of hardware – amplifier for all sounds from computer and a scanner.
All other connections are not activated on start up and have had their physical connection to the computer removed whilst experiencing this problem.
