    So I was in a game and was in the main menu when i noticed the screen would flicker randomly when i moved my mouse, and would periodically go dark followed by a sudden complete black screen. At that point the computer could still give some audio off, no video, and didn't take any commands from either mouse or keyboard. I opted to restart my pc, but now the pc only turns on and makes the usual whirring and fan spinning noises, but does very little else. It wont respond to any mouse/keyboard inputs, (mouse and keyboards lights don't even glow), monitor gets no signal no matter what, and the pc doesnt even make the beep that it usually makes when booting up.
    I have no idea what to do to fix this, and my only guess on what the issue might be is that it was a voltage issue, as there was a power cut soon after.
    HELP!!!!

    Bad GPU, maybe bad PSU.

    Post your system specs

    I don't really know how to find out what this pc's specs are as its practically dead now, I just know this one is really old (like over 7 years maybe). Just let me know if this problem is therefor fixable or do I need to buy a new pc (assuming i have bad specs which i probably do)

    If the computer is really that old then it's outdated anyway. Based on the problems with it, if you can, I would buy a new system.
