The problem: My monitor displays the message "No signal" and gpu fans speed up a lot, this happens at the same time, as soon as monitor loses signal, fans speed up. It usually happens while gaming, but sometimes when I'm not, sometimes while booting, sometimes while browsing internet, it's random. Also the sound in the background works, so it's only the monitor that is shut down, turning it off and on doesn't work, unplugging it neither. The only way to fix the problem is to restart the PC, sometimes I have to turn it off (back side of PC case).

Additional problem: I know it's one post - one problem, but I still wanted to add that before this problem I had a problem where pc would restart randomly, so this still sometimes happens, especially during boot, but not so many times as the first problem. 

Things I tried:

-cleaning the dust

-unplugging everything and plugging back, check contats

-checking temperature (it's normal, not more than 40 while idle and not more than 70 while gaming (gpu and CPU))

-malwarebytes (found something and deleted it, now it doesn't find anything)

-updated windows and geforce drivers

-running avast (couldn't complete full scan, because the monitor shut down after about 20% so I had to do a restart)

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
