|Hello everyone. |
Read a lot on this problem, but as you can imagine, so much info can be overwhelming so I was wondering if someone could help me out.
basically, the problem:
In the past month, my monitor started shutting down (usually during some "act" or when I am playing a game). For instance, launching a game would cause my monitor to turn off.
When the monitor turns off, the PC stays on and the fan starts to work very loudly.
Times this happens is random. Sometimes I have the computer on for 8 hours, play 1 game, then close it and when I try to open it again, it happens.
I have replugged everything, checked for drivers updates and on the next crash will use Memtest86 to check the CPU.
I also installed SpeedFan to check temperatures. Right now:
GPU Temp - 72C
Local - 47
Core 0-4 - 56C-59C
2 Fans, One working at 1300RPM, other at 1000RPM.
I am assuming something is wrong with overheating or something like that. Is it likely to be the motherboard or the graphics card or something else entirely?
p.s. no idea if this is any help, I read somewhere to "check" if numlock button turns on when this happens - it doesn't.
Any help is appreciate.
