I will try to make it as brief as possible. Built this new pc a 2 months ago, everything was fine for maybe the first month then it started to crash and restart itself, sometimes with a buzzing sound. Replaced the new psu with another. Took it to a repair person they did tests on the hardware and found nothing wrong. The issue persisted and progressed into just freezes/hangs where i would have to manually start the pc. Then i found out my ram isn't on the compatibility list. I tried one stick at a time and in all different slots according to the mobo. All the settings in the bios were correct. I've done clean windows 10 installs, downloaded/reinstalled drivers. So maybe this is the cause of incompatible ram?
Currently, the monitor is randomly turning black with no signal but the lights/fans are on the pc or sometimes it restarts. I even had a weird screen issue where it went fuzzy at one point but it only happened once when installing the graphics card driver. Now I can't use the pc for more than 5 minutes without the screen going black with no signal. It also came up with a notification about the Nvidia driver on windows 10.
Done intel burn test no crash, memtest no errors, bios updated, hdd no problems, done virus scans.
Just want to know if it is a RAM or graphics issue, so i can replace it without spending money on something I don't need.
