Hey.
From time to time (almost always when completely idle) my monitors shut down and wont turn back on, and the PC ceases activity without ever turning off (as indicated by it stopping making noise when it happens) forcing me to restart my PC. This has led me to believe it's a GPU issue, but I can't be sure because the problem seems to have started when I upgraded my RAM and CPU. I also added a second HDD at the same time, but that shouldn't be an issue since for booting up Windows I only use the SSD. Here are my current specs:
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
GPU: RX 470 - 4GB
Motherboard: B450M DS3H
RAM: G.SKILL Aegis 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3000MHz CL16
PSU: CX 600W
Case: Deepcool Tesseract WH White
SSD: Toshiba TR150 240GB
HDD 1: WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM
HDD 2: Seagate Laptop Thin 500GB 7200RPM
Monitor 1: Lenovo G25-10 24.5" 144Hz
Monitor 2: ASUS VS228NE 21.5" 60Hz
Any idea what could be causing this issue?
Thank you for your time.
