Having some PC problems...Any help would be great.
« on: June 29, 2017, 03:57:42 AM »
Just got my internet up and running recently...Everything seemed to be fine for the most part. Except for today.
Turned off my PC last night with no problems, when I went to turn it on today, everything powered and booted up, but my monitor (Devant TV connected HDMI) wouldn't come on and I didn't hear the normal *Beep* when starting up my PC.
So I shut it down, checked the net for others having the same problem and did almost everything they told me to do.
Swapped the RAM slots, cleaned the RAM connectors, secured the P4 connector on the Motherboard, removed and reconnected graphics card, checked all connectors and cords, everything is in snug and proper. So I continuously shut down and turn on the PC trying all these fixes, then randomly, it comes back on, boots up and all is well. Then after a few minutes, pooof, PC locks up, can't do anything and am forced to restart. Lo and behold, after the restart, it starts doing the same thing again. So I found another "temporary fix" for it.
Taking out and putting back in the CMOS battery to force the "set date and time" in the bios. That seems to have worked to "fix" it each time so far, but evern after doing that, I started up a game of Overwatch (Everything seemed perfect) then a couple minutes into the game, the display went blank again. I pressed some keys on the keyboard and heard the PC make a few beeping noises, then afterwards, nothing but a blank screen.
So I again removed the CMOS battery and put it back in and now here I am writing this out. Can ANYone help me with a full 100% fix for this annoying problem? Would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance guys.

Anything that can be done to help fix this annoyance would be awesome. Thanks again anyone who is able to help.

EDIT 1: I think I may have narrowed something down......Seems when I have my PC laying on its side (Motherboard and everything facing up), no problem. Once I stand it up normally, display goes out and crashes again. Maybe a loose connection somewhere, but I have no idea where, considering I checked all the connections and made sure they were secure, but I could be mistaken.

When the system refuses to boot or goes to a black screen, do the fans spin up to full speed?
I play IIDX sometimes a lot.

Yes, all the fans spin up no problem, including the fans on my GFX card. Literally everything works.
I even see the loading light flicker properly as it the computer seems to boot up normally...Just don't hear the startup beep and the monitor stays blank.
Now that I have it laying down on its side, there hasn't been a problem...Only when it stands up. I'm thinking its a loose connection with something, but I have no idea what.

Just thought of something weird. Does anything odd happen if you wiggle the video cable (the one leading to your monitor)?

Nothing at all. Doesn't change a thing.
