Having a bit of trouble with my PC. Built by myself a couple of years ago and had no problems at all until now.
It's not the monitor. Tested this. There are no weird temp increases or decreases in GPU. Need to check CPU.
Used driver cleaning software to clean out every trace of remaining drivers and installed fresh ones.
Haven't tried a new PSU or GPU. It did make an intermittent whirring sound then went silent and then repeated. This stopped when I switched to on-board graphics and stopped using my dedicated GPU.
It's been running fine using my on-board GPU. No signal loss or glitchy screen since switching to on-board GPU.
Before I go out and buy a new GPU, do you guys reckon this is the problem too? My old GPU is still plugged into the motherboard and fans are still spinning so I guess it's still drawing power so can I rule out a PSU issue? Whining noise and signal/freezing issues have been solved just by switching to on board graphics.
I don't have spare parts to thoroughly test the component myself
I think it's the GPU. I don't know of a way to test the PSU without another PSU to hand. Motherboard works when using on board GPU so surely not the motherboard?
Don't want to splash hundreds out for another GPU without knowing for sure if I can help it. Thanks guys <3
