    Right now, there is no way I can get my system to work properly.
    I tried it with just the SSD, just the HDD and with both, but nothing works.
    What should I do now?

    Well, this is just weird. I just got home from college and tried starting the PC.
    It actually went past the POST and offered me Startup Repair.
    Could it be that the PC can only boot when it has been off for a few hours? :S
    I'm confused

    The only thing that comes to mind is that your pc was overheating.
    PC cooled off when it was off.

    I cant think of another reason why your pc would do this.

    I could not think of a component that's overheating.
    The CPU stays around 30C and everything on the motherboard stays cool enough to touch.

    True that, and you're in the Netherlands where it probably freezing cold atm.

    Hmm I would probably send your motherboard out for RMA.

    I was hoping one of the ASRock people here could give me a solution.
    But so far nothing has worked :(

    Dear tboerdilk,

    Please kindly refer to below steps to check your system.
    1. Only install the necessary device of your system (CPU, a stick memory and one HDD)
    2. As soon as you boot the system, please kindly press "F11" to boot menu and choose booting the system from your SATA HDD.
    If the system cannot recognize your HDD, please kindly press "F2" to BIOS and then load BIOS default settings to try.

    If the problem still cannot be solved, please kindly contact your local dealer to check your system.
    Thanks~

    Have a nice day
    ASRock TSD

    Thanks for the advice. I followed the steps you suggested, but it still didn't solve the problem.
    I even tried older BIOSes, but it gives the same problem.
    Should I bring it back to the store I bought it from? The board is about 9 months now.

    Most stores dont accept return for replacements after 30-60 days. If your store doesnt accept it send it out for repair at an Asrock RMA center.

    Asrock RMA info:
    ASRock > Support > Repair / RMA

    Also when contacting them for RMA, please include this link in your email/chat with them.

    So that they can see, that you have tried many solutions but none worked.
