Right so I am pretty fucked. I am writing this on an alt as I don't any of my passwords with me.
Anyways yesterday I was playing Grim Dawn and everything was fine when suddenly my screen went black, and then my screen changed to a fucked up display of funky rainbow artifacts all over the screen, with a godawful noise blaring in my headphones.
I shut it off, and now when I start my PC, everything seems to look fine - I see all my lights and fans working, but my monitor stays black. It is as if it doesn't detect anything. I also noticed my keyboard doesn't seem to work.
I don't hear any POST beeps either, so I am at a loss as to what is wrong.(I also don't have any onboard speakers, and I am not sure if my headphones would pick up the beeps or not.)
I have tried cleaning it out, and there was a shit ton of dust. I also tried removing my ram and unplugging my video card to see if I can get any beeps. Nothing. I have only 1 stick of ram, so I can't test more.
I have also attempted reseting my CMOS.
So far, I am convinced it is either my GPU, my PSU, or the whole fucking motherboard. I have no idea.
Also earlier yesterday my pc froze on the lock screen, and I had to force reboot. Another time, a few says before this, my screen got all fucked up and frozen and I had to reboot to fix that as well.
