I just build this computer yesterday and when I got on this morning everything seemed to be ok. I was attempting to add my 2nd monitor and my keyboard and mouse suddenly lost power and my power button would not turn off my system. I turned it off at the psu after a few minuets and the system now does let me into bios. My power button now can turn on the system but cannot turn it off

things Ive tried
unplugging and re plugging mouse and keyboard into a different port
starting without anything plugged in
re-seating my ram and GPU
resetting cmos with pins

Specs:
cpu: ryzen 5 3600xt
gpu: EVGA rtx 3070
mobo: ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi)
memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB
drive: Samsung 970 EVO

I am dumb and didn't make sure everything was securely plugged into PSU, system appears ok

Go classic.

The classic method for troubleshooting the failed PC (not just this one) is to MAKE IT SMALLER.

Sometimes you even have to remove the case, put the motherboard on cardboard and add the fewest of parts to see if they function. If they don't you are looking at the bad part or parts.
