I downloaded msi afterburner after a friend told me do so and I was messing with it and after I loaded up GTA V the screen when black. when i restarted the monitor gets no signal, but I can tell the GPU is on because the LED on it is on. I have a 570 8gb. Any solutions?

Restart your computer. Probably means your core clock is too high.

Ah sorry. I expect what is happening is that the overclock is automatically being applied when you restart. You may be able to restart in safe mode to prevent it from automatically applying and then opening afterburner and lowering the clock speed.
