Recently my PC has given me black screens when playing games.
I play the game normally, and then my screen goes black and the audio cuts off.
Sometimes the screen goes black and then comes back again, but with the screen having some glitchy-type? effect on it.
Note: PC runs normally if im just browsing the internet.
I've had this PC for over 2-3 years now. The problem first occurred a month ago after I cleaned some dust off the GPU fan after it got stuck.
I'm not that smart with computers so I decided to come here to ask for help.
