I googled the best place to look for pc help and here I am.

Recently I've started having problems with my computer. It started with the system not making it to the login screen and turning off automatically. After turning it off by the power and playing around with the cable connection cables it worked but it still does this from time to time.

My problems worsened as my pc started to freeze while playing games. What happens is the sound distorts, then my game will freeze. My mouse will not work but my keyboard will and the game continues.

I do not know where to begin with diagnosing this problem, it is beyond my expertise. My suspicion is that my motherboard or psu may finally be dying.

Windows 10 64bit Mobo: ms-7757 gpu: 670 sli ram: 8gb cpu: i7-3770k

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Might first be worth giving it a good blow out and cleaning the dust and fluff fom heat sink and fan and from the graphics fan.

Set a check the hard drive for errors and run a memory test.
