Computer Problem

May 8, 2018 6:11PM PDT

Hello. I've been having a problem with my pc for a few months now. When I try to play a game, my pc screen will turn black for a few seconds then automatically restart. I thought this may be a gpu problem so I tried updating it by looking online. I've updated it but from time to time I still see pixels on my screen, even my games occasionally. But recently, when I turn my pc on, my mouse and my headphone light will turn on, not my keyboard or my Wi-Fi adapter. My monitor will load everything up until the Windows loading screen. Then my monitor will say no signal and my mouse and headphones aren't lit up. I can't turn my pc off or restart it, I have to force a shutdown by flipping the switch beside the power cable. I've had this pc since Christmas of 2016 so it's fairly new. This problem has been going on for a while. It used to only happen once a day then it'll be fine, then now it's every time I load a game. My pc will sometimes just freeze, and I'll have to shut it down. My of specs are 

AMD Eight-Core FX-8320 Vishera Processor
3.50GHz (with a max turbo speed 4.0GHz), 8MB Cache
8GB system memory
AMD Radeon RX-460 Graphics
2GB of dedicated graphics memory
Please help, I really miss my pc

They worked perfectly until a few months ago.

I read that a psu can cause artifacts as well. I'll be getting a new psu soon. My pc also has trouble starting up sometimes and will just start restarting over and over again so I think I narrowed the problem down.

While it's just a guess.

The make and model can tell us if this is "one of those" models I avoid. Also the Speccy let's me check out drive health and temps.

I didn't write it was the PSU here.

Sorry I meant the make and model of the PSU.

I meant the make and model of the PSU.

Also, try again on the Web Speccy report.
