So recently my computer has been freezing a lot sometimes it happens after a lot of days I noticed this happened first after I installed a sound driver ( but im not sure the problem seems like it's graphics related) so when I'm playing sometimes the screen just loses signal and everything freezes and whatever audio is playing just bugs out ,if I press the power button nothing happens I have to force shut down it. And when I restart the pc even when I'm not gaming, sometimes the screen blinks and everything just freezes if I press the power button everything shuts down instantly this usually occurs after a few minutes of windows loading in

i had a similar issue where the screens turned black and the sound froze and i had to restart the pc. it was the pcie power cable from the psu to the graphics card it was not making proper contact and in some cases where my case was moved the cable wasnt making conatct.
