I have no idea what’s happening or what’s causing it, but it happened twice and both times I was playing a game.
I was playing AC: Odyssey when my screens suddenly went black and lost signal. Apart from my screen losing signal, all my USB peripherals turned off or stopped charging (I could tell by the LEDs turning off on both the mouse and keyboard. Also, my phone which was connected via USB, stopped charging). My towers fans continued spinning, motherboard LEDs were still on. I couldn’t ALT+TAB or ALT+F4, the screens just remained black and without signal.
The first time this happened, I was playing Watch Dogs 2.
I recently upgraded my system’s motherboard, SSD, RAM, CPU, and GPU. In addition, I am running a fresh install of Windows 10.
My current specs are:
Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk
CPU: 2600x OCed to
SSD: Kingston A400
RAM: Trident Z RGB 16GB - 3000
GPU: ASUS DUAL 2080 OC
PSU: EVGA 750W G2
I’ve had this PSU for about 3-4 years now, could that be causing the problem?
More info: I am running a dual screen 1080p 144hz Monitor setup and they both have a USB 3.0 hub built in which I have connected to 2x 3.0 ports on my PC. Most of my parts are recently upgraded (less than 2 months old). The only old parts that I’m using are my PSU (3-5 years old) and my 2 HDDs (bought at the same time as PSU). My OS is running on a new SSD which I got about 2-3 months ago.
