Monitor went blank while playing a game. PC turns on, but wont boot
When i was playing Warframe, the monitor suddenly went blank and lost the signal from the PC. When this occurred the pc was still running.
When i power on the pc, the monitor displays "No Signal" and the screen goes to sleep.
All the components seem to be working and light up, including the keyboard and mouse
To find out if it was the monitor was still working properly, i connected it to my PS4 and to my neighbours PC and it worked fine. So i ruled out the monitor.
I also tried different hdmi cables and nothing had changed. Then I cleaned my PC and followed several steps to get it back working:
1.I removed the power cable, and hard pressed the power button for 30sec/1min/2min
2.I removed the ram sticks and cleaned them with an eraser and a soft cloth, i put the 2 sticks in the other 2 slots.
Put 1 ram stick at a time.
3.Reseated the gpu.
5.Removed every single PC connection (except the cpu) and put them back
6.Went through all the wiring to see if there is any loose connection.
7.Removed CMOS battery and put it back, also tried putting a new compatible battery8
8.Put gpu into other PCI-e slot
9.Rebuilt PC outside of Case
All the actions i described above have failed
I encountered this similar situation twice before:
The first time, my monitor wasnt displaying anything right after I had just cleaned the PC, I thought i might have disturbed some connection and nudged the wires and just firmly pressed the wires into the ports which fixed it.
The second time, the same problem occured when i shifted my pc to another room. I did the same thing as the b4 and it worked after 1-2 hours of tearing apart the pc and just pressing the parts into their positions
However, i had never encountered this problem WHILE using the PC, and after trying all sorts of stuff, i havent been able to figure out what component has been damaged and what even happened in the first place. I will atleast be happy if i get to know the specifics of this issue and dont mind replacing psu, ram sticks,drives if im 100% sure where the problem is. Rightnow nothing is displaying on the monitor and i cant open the BIOS.
My cpu DOESNT have integrated graphics so cant see if the gpu is at fault by connecting hdmi to mobo.
I have been using the computer for the past 3 years
I have been playing Warframe from the past 2 weeks, and i have noticed that the PC gets very hot during gameplay, the glass panel is pretty warm when i put my palm on it.
I ASSUME that my PSU had been damaged and needs a replacement, however the PSU i own seems to be of good quality and i doublt it is faulty as all the other components and keyboard mouse recieve power and light up. And i dont think PSU’s can fail so suddenly.
or it might have been an issue of overheating.
Also i dont have a sound cable attatched to the mobo, so i cant hear any beeps.
It would be great if someone could give me any tips or guides, Rightnow its lockdown in India and i cant go out or buy any PC part. I was enjoying my holidays as i have passed out of highschool, got selected in a good college and I now taking rest. Started playing games again after 2 years of hardwork and its dissapointing that something could have happened to my PC, as i think of it as my child.
