Was playing a game (GTA V) and then the PC froze and showed a BSOD. it refused to start up after this. after 2 hours of swapping ram sticks and clearing CMOS. i tried booting without my GPU. it starts and boots fine with the intel iGPU. but now with the Aorus RX580. it would show the bios logo and then freeze on a dark screen.

it sends signal to my TV as it does not show a "no signal" box message. but it shows a dark display. It does let me into bios boot menu, bios settings and but it doesn't boot windows. just freezes on a dark screen. my keyboard is frozen as well. I'm sure because I can not toggle num lock and caps lock

MOBO: Gigabyte B85-HD3
CPU: i5-4440
GPU: Aorus RX580 8GB
