    Computer frequently crashing, GPU sometimes doesn’t start back up

    eadiecd

      I recently built this PC and I’m having issues with it freezing. At first, my keyboard RGB and my monitor would turn black, but the CPU and case fans would continue. After updating all of my drivers, now the screen & keyboard stay on, but the screen freezes. When it freezes, the CPU fan, case fan, and case RGB continue to work but my GPU fans stop. When I try to restart it, sometimes the CPU fan, case fan, and RGB come on but the GPU never turns on. If I wait a few minutes and try again, it works fine again until it freezes. Time between crashes is anywhere between 30 minutes and several hours.

       

      I am pretty certain that all of my drivers are up to date and all components should be compatible. Some friends have suggested it is a RAM issue but I’m not sure what the optimal settings for RAM should be. I’m in engineering school and really need this thing to be stable. Any help you could offer is greatly appreciated!
