    Hello!

    So lately my pc keeps getting black screen (same as putting pc to sleep or locking it) after a while, the period always varies, there's no specific time it will happen, it can go from literally a minute from startup to 4 hours which I believe is the longest it has gone without getting it. I assume this doesn't happen because of overheating since as I said it sometimes happen after 1 minute from startup so perhaps a PSU issue? I've already cleaned my entire pc from dust using an electric plower and installed a new OS version and have the latest gpu drivers installed, also my temperatures are normal.

    Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks in advance!

    What brand/model power supply do you have? Also dang that's quite a dated PC.
    Also I recommend running a MemTest https://www.memtest86.com/
    It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready.
    I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything.
    There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.
    And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
