KDE, plasmashell won't start, "rdrand failed"

Hello, I recently made a post about having trouble installing Manjaro KDE on a PC build with an Nvidia card, but fortunately I have been able to at least get an install. Unfortunately, the last issue seems to be that plasmashell just refuses to start. It doesn’t start on boot like it should, and when I run the command kstart5 plasmashell, this is what I get:

kf.coreaddons: plugin metadata in /usr/lib/qt/plugins/many-different-filepaths does not have a valid 'MetaData' object

there are about 100 of the above types of warnings, and the last couple lines are:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  random_device: rdrand failed

I looked up that error message, but found nothing but my other post regarding KDE and an “rdrand failed” message. Here are my system details, in case anyone wants them:

Any ideas of what’s going on, and how it can be fixed?

EDIT: To any future users who find my post, it was a BIOS update that fixed it! Who would have thought!
