Hello,

I am having a problem with my pc, i have only had it about a month.
When i have been using my PC for about half an hour, the screen used to turn off including the speakers, keyboard and mouse.
This used to be resolved from restarting it manually. Now i have a problem of not actually being able to boot it up, the pc turns on (LEDS etc.) fans, cpu, everything, but i am getting no picture on the screen. HELP?
Thanks

Specs:

AMD FX 4100 quad core processor.
4GB Ram
200GB HDD
GTX 550 TI 910MHz overclocked (Direct CU)
Windows7 Ultimate
Asus M5A78L/USB3 motherboard

Are you using the PC for gaming? This sounds like a problem with overheating. Can you test the computer with the case opened and a table fan pointed into the case. If it operates OK in this mode then you need to install extra cooling fans in the case.

As a last resort, you might want to remove the CPU fan/heatsink and reapply a good brand of heatsink grease.

Good Luck
