My PC turns on but the monitor is no signal

  mali77 17:23 08 Jun 2018

I bought a custom built pc around 3 years ago and it hasn't had a single issue since. Recently when I play a game on it the pc sometimes will get a black screen and will make a distorted noise. This is usually fixed after I turn it on and off. However, a few days ago instead of getting a black screen when it crashed the screen turned brown. After I tried to reset it the monitor keeps saying no signal. I checked the DVI cable and made sure it was in properly. After this I took out the ram and wiped it and the CMOS(I have no history with computers). When I turn the computer on the fans are working and the GPU's fans also work so i'm not sure what the issue is.

My rig is: Gtx 970 i7 4790k Two 8gb rams 750 PSU

Any advice on how to fix it would be appreciated.

try the monitor cable on your other machine

if still same try removing and refitting the graphics card.

This is a long shot but will cost you nothing to carry out.

Take the cover off Graphics Card and clean between the fins of the heat exchanger.
