Hi Guys!

I need help for my computer, I thank whoever takes time and afford to reply.


I have been using my computer over 8 years and suddenly display to  go off after running couple of minutes opening all the files. Suddenly screen goes blank. But the processor is running.  I can't shut it down using power button so I unplug power cable an turn it on with safe mode I did system scan, found and fixed this problem "CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log" but problem still persist, screen goes blank and grey. I did the scan again and found no fault.

If all of your components are 8 years old I suspect that they are at the very end of their life cycle. Before things get too much worse be sure to back up everything in the way of data and documents you have to have. Then I would recommend an easy fix - a new computer.

If I were to guess about the weakest components they would be the power supply, graphics card, and possibly the monitor.

Keep us posted

PSU failing or the system halting from overheating. If you had that long and never cleaned it.
