I left my computer on over night to download gta v and woke up in the morning and played it for about 20 minutes.

I leave the room for a minute while the game is paused and it crashed, so I turned the computer off and I turned it back on when I got home from school and

it won't get a signal to the monitor and I tried hard booting it and it won't go off by holding the power button down.

so I unplugged everything from the back and let it cool off for a few hours and it still won't get a signal and still won't hard boot but all the lights and fans are turning on

even the psu has a fan and it turns on.

 

I have a 1200w platinum power supply

gtx 780 ti

bleepty motherboard - GA-970A-UD3 by gigabyte

amd 9590 cpu 8 core

2 tarabyte hard drive, just regular speed not raid 0 or raid 1

windows 7 home premium 64bit

 

any suggestions would help, ask me questions if I left something out i will answer them

 

edit:

want to add one thing, gta v was 60gb and I had around 620gb left of free space

also I had trouble with getting my all 8gb of ram to work

Age of the components in question? Security program & current? Connection speed & reliability?

Thanks

Hi there Choober,
 
You should really follow @dicke 's advice and check all of the components first. If I were you I'd also try resetting CMOS and replacing the mobo battery. Since you've had problems with your RAM you can also replace that, or at least try a combination of only 1 or 2 ram sticks. Lastly - if the only problem is "No signal" message on screen the culprit might as well be your graphics card. If your motherboard has an integrated one, switch the VGA/HDMI cable to the motherboard port. Than try to boot and change the graphics card priorities in BIOS. 
 
I will be waiting for your response and will try to help further if needed. Citizen_WD

It seemed to be the motherboard because I replaced it and it everything worked again (reinstalled windows) and bought 2 new sticks of ram and put away the old ram and the system reserve is taking up almost 8gbs of ram of my 16gb ram. I just installed both sticks. So it's no longer the parts in my computer, I don't want to hear that anymore.
