I want to find out the failure of my computer before the warranty expires

For a long time, I have had problems with my computer that neither the technician who built it nor someone else who brought the computer, knew how to find out ...

I put this question in the graphics card section because I think it is the cause, although I am not totally sure. I explain:

For a long time, with my graphics, my computer screen began to turn colors after certain programs such as MSI afterburner or streamlabs ... Problems that I thought were from the monitor, but I bought another one and my problem is that the screen many times, it stays as off and I have to activate and deactivate some option of AMD radeon so that the screen flickers and is solved.

My problem is that, on my motherboard, the red light appears on VGA and an underscore on the screen, after 2 -3 minutes of waiting, it disappears and starts the motherboard and Windows 10 normally. The strange thing is that if I have had the computer on for a long time, and I restart for example, this red light lasts less time and starts the pc almost quickly.

Why do I think it is my graph? Because I have changed the CPU, the motherboard, the RAM memories, I have tried another SSD just in case it was the hard disk, and the errors did not disappear.

I have:
Ryzen 5 2600x
2X8 GB 3200MHz HyperX Fury
SSD Samsung EVO 850 and Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm
Seasonic Focus Gold 550w +85

I do not have another graphics card to verify if it is the GPU or another PSU ... I will try to get it, but the RX 580 warranty ends in 2 months ... And now there are no graphics to buy, because I could not buy another because I had financial problems. Now I'm better, but I don't want to pay triple to buy another graphics card either.

Then attempt warranty on it whilst you still have it.

This 100%. There's no harm in doing so, outside of that you just won't have a pc working for a while.


Sounds like the technician didn't really do his job

Yeah like said ebfore i would go for RMA route first. And i would send the GPU.

If thats not the problem you will get it back, and they will tell you most of the time if it was actually broken or not.

I know its a hassle, but rather sooner then later.

Now if you get back the GPU and thats  not the problem you have time to send in another thing. Not the case of you wait to long...


Best of luck!

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!
