Sleep mode crashes pc (possibly motherboard related)

Hello,

So I installed this new camera a few days ago and it ended up crashed my pc giving me the BSOD. A day after this I arrived home from work and my pc was in sleep mode as normal with the light on the front flashing. I go to wake it up by pressing the keyboard or mouse and the flashing light on the pc fixes on, all the lights from my keyboard, mouse and anything lose all power and the fans on the pc don't start or light up. After wait a few mins after cutting the power I turn it back on and It boots up gives me the ASUS overclocking failed screen with a press F1 to go into BIOS setup or something. After going into the set up menu and exiting it the PC boots as normal. No idea what's going on, my pc isn't over clocked and I've changed power plans, check usbs and all sorts. I really need help as I paid a lot of money for this custom built pc In an effort to hopefully get fewer problems with it than my old one and so far it has been fine. Anyone who can help with this I would Ben overwhelmingly greatful to.

  1. Please post your parts list. From what you said it sounds like the cam install did something.
  2. My main system parts are:
    Motherboard: ASUS ROG maximus VIII ranger
    OS: Windows 10
    GPU: Msi nvidia 1070 gaming X version
    OS Storage: M.2 Samsung SSD (os only)
    Games drive: 1TB WD HHD

    A couple LED fans which light up when the system is running along with an RBG keyboard and mouse
  3. You will probably need to clear cmos/reset bios. Also you may have to do a clean windows 10 install or have a restore point before the cam. Remove the cam for sure and maybe that will fix the issue. Could be a bad cam driver.

    Okay, i'll look at those as options but they sound a bit extreme and I've done neither before so id have to do some research on how. Is there anything else that I can do that may solve this issue?
  5. I had a look at resetting the CMOS today, wont this reset my computer to factory / first boot state? I don't want to lose all my stuff on here
  6. It will reset your your bios setting to factory. IE re id your parts using default auto settings. It doesn't reinstall your OS at all. Now the reinstall if that doesn't work will so back up your data. While risky a reinstall can be dont without erasing the HD. Just dont select the formate first option and look for save user data.

    So I reset the CMOS today (I think) I opened the case and pressed the CLR_CMOS button. It booted then shut off then a boot again, I went into bios and remade my settings. Today it crashed again in sleep mode, then wouldn't turn on again until I waited 5 minutes and unplugged the power. I'm trying to keep Factory resetting as my final option, any other ideas on any other possible solutions?
    Thank you for your help so far
