Question Black screen and restart after about 15 minutes of starting PC ?


Jan 26, 2019

Today, I booted up my PC, started browsing on chrome for about 15 minutes and then my PC black-screened and rebooted. I was surprised, but had this happen before about 4 times with several months in between each occurence, where it wouldn't restart. I let it restart and went back to my usual browsing, but then it happened again with about the same time interval as before. So, I decided to write this post.

The last time I made any change to my PC was when I purchased a new GPU and PSU, but that was a year or two ago, The last driver update I installed was the latest GeForce experience driver.

My specs are as follows:

(note: nothing is overclocked)

OS: Windows 10 Pro, Version 21H2
GPU: RTX 2060 6GB
CPU: Ryzen 7 1700 Eight-Core 3.00GHz
PSU: Corsair RM550x 80 Plus Gold
RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 2x8gb 2666mHz DDR4
Motherboard: ROG STRIX B350-F Gaming
Storage: SanDisk SDSSDH3250G and Seagate ST1000DM010-2EP102

P.S After writing this, it still hasn't restarted. Took me about 15 minutes to get the name of all the parts.
