    i made sure all my drivers were up to date

    checked my psu and the only thing running off is the +12 its at 11.26-11.46 im unsure if this is the problem

    made sure windows auto restart was off etc... and still having issues.

    left the computer on to go see a movie came back and had a black screen no response from mouse or keyboard. had to push power button

    and ontop of this all my temps are fine

    so im at a loss as to what it is the only idea is the psu but i would have no idea how to comfirm this

    any help would be apreciated
