Question Monitor went black and beeping?


Mar 31, 2013
After playing Civilization 5, my desktop starts not responding. My mouse pointer was very slow and lagging. I tried closing everything but task manager comes up very slow. Then my monitor went black. It starts beeping when I try clicking with my mouse. I notice that my NVME m.2 ssd blinks fast when I click with my mouse. I am not sure about what happened. I looked up event viewer for errors/criticals, they doesn't make sense to me. But my good g uess is that it may have something to do with my GPU or NVME M.2 SSD...

About 1 month later after buying NVME M.2 last Christmas, my desktop froze and my m.2. ssd were not displaying any light. After that, it didn't happen again. That's why I guess that this time it may have something to do with my SSD.

What do you think?
