Hello, I am hoping someone can offer me some help. I have a custom built PC I assembled about a year and a half ago that has worked fine until this past week. No issues at all. While playing two different games, the monitor randomly froze up on me and just showed gray vertical bars. On both occasions it happened about 5 minutes into gameplay. I rebooted, everything seemed fine...
Fast forward a few days then it happened out of game at desktop while I was opening Chrome. On reboot I tried to get into BIOS and run a hardware scan and couldn't get that far. PC was freezing and then on reboot and since then, the monitor just goes black and I can't get any display. I can't get into safemode or BIOS or anything.
Everything as far as hardware seems to be booting, fans, monitor is on, etc. I unplugged everything USB wise and tried boot, I tried resetting the CMOS battery and bought a new one as well for $3 to no avail. All connections seem to be fine and everything is secured.
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? I'm hoping its a boot error or some sort as I can't replace the mobo at the moment...but just knowing as of now would be nice as it seems odd for the mobo to die after a year.
Any help is appreciated!
