Screen goes black, but the computer still on. GPU issue?

Oct 11, 2017 10:17PM PDT

Hello all,

Very recently Ive been having a problem where while playing games, my screen will go black, and essentially crash my computer. I lose my sound and it cuts out my keyboard, but the computer and fans are still running. Ive tried everything I could think of to fix the problem ( video drivers, dusting, reslotting various devices) but no fix. I also know its not an overheating issue as my average temp when this happens is about 40-45c

Intel i7 3770 @3.5ghz
16g ram
Amd radeon r9 390
Asus p5q motherboard
Corsair hx750 powersupply

Please help!
Thanks in advance

With the side panel off.

If no help remove the gpu and plug the monitor into the mobo.

Again. You don't know if it's temp related. Why?

Because not all chips have temperature reporting. Try it without a case cover and see if it takes longer to lockup.
