As the title says the computer worked fine until i started my game and a few seconds later the computer crashed and the screen displayed a brown color. However after this occurrence i wasn’t able to turn on the computer, no beep, only the fans started spinning. I’ve tried to find the problem by troubleshooting outside of the case, however no boot, no beeps no nothing just fans spinning.

My setup:
Motherboard : Asus prime z390-p
CPU: Intel Core i3 9100F 3.6GHz, 6Mb, Socket 1151
GPU: Asus Radeon R9 280X 3GB
RAM: Corsair 8Gb (2x4GB) DDR4 2666MHz CL16 Vengeance LPX
PSU: XFX TS 550W

Any suggestions what to do to solve the problem?

Have you attempted to plug the monitor into the Mobo? That GPU is really old, I've got a feeling it's that. If the fans are going, it seems like it could be booting. Try running the HDMI or whichever connector you use via the outputs on the motherboard, not the GPU

If your pc crashes when playing a game but then doesnt turn on, try a new psu. Likely a faulty psu, whether or not its slow, old or whatever I'd say the PSU is faulty. Also, try a new gpu if it always crashes when playing games.

With regard to the psu: Try a warm reboot. If the computer powers up then it is likely that the PSU is bad. PSUs don't like hot temps and start to fail in the hotter months of the year.
