    Default 6 beeps, black screen... no clue what is going on.

    So yeah i have been having this issue that my computer just recently decided not to boot properly anymore, i built the computer 2 months back and it has been running perfectly for 2 months untill around 1 week back, it first started with a 6 beep when i booted the comp, i just simply restarted and the computer booted normally again, but after that, it just keeps making 6 beeps on boot with black screen and no lights turned on in mouse or keyboard, i have tried to restart the computer for like 200-500 times now, sometimes it succesfully boots and runs normal but the 98% other times, it just makes 6 beeps instead, now its come to a point where it never boots.

    Tried to clear cmos, take bettery out and in, unplugged rams and graphic card, still makes the 6 beeps unless if i remove all rams.

    any suggestions? yes i have tried google the whole week, only found out that it could be a problem with a20 high memory area keyboard or something like that, but it still cannot boot without keyboard in.

    What BIOS (or does that have UEFI)?

    Seemingly KB related?

    I had issues with my keyboard and mouse not starting up to even get into the uefi , I spoke to asrock and they said pull out all ram and boot it up. if it beeps 3 times your mobo is ok which mine was. not sure what 6 beep code means hopfully not a bad mobo . anyway after messing with it for a month and trying everything nothing worked to fix.. but for some unknown reason it just started to work fine after a month or so. go figure lol.. I would call asrock directly. hope this helps tiny bit..

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the keyboard and mouse drivers and software several times and kept updating it. then I sent report to Microsoft since I had a Microsoft keyboard and, maybe that was the fix im still cluless how it fixed itself.
