Alright so here's what's happening, yesterday I left my computer idling (the only program running was Firefox) because I started fiddling with my paintball guns, then out of nowhere, my computer turns off and restarts itself. At that point, I was really confused, but not too worried thinking I'd figure it out once my computer reboots. Well the thing is, is that when it tried to reboot itself, everything gets power and seems to be on, but my LED/Temp gauge on the motherboard is blank (nothing shows at all) as well as getting a black screen.
So I did a reset again, but this time resetting the CMOS, and again no LED/Temp gauge and black screen, but all the fans are on and whatnot.
Freaking out, I turned off my computer and switched off the PSU. I then proceed to reseat everything on my computer thinking maybe something was loose. After I was done, I turn on my computer and everything is fine, the motherboard's LED/temp gauge is on and showing me temps (no error codes). The computer at this point is working normally until about 10-15mins in, my computer freezes up and stays like that. I look into my case and I see that the LED/Temp Gauge is also frozen.
So I restart my computer and again the LED/Temp Gauge doesn't switch on, but all of the other components do however I keep getting the black screen.
This keeps happening over and over where the computer will turn on, but no LED/Temp gauge and a black screen, or if it does bootup and into windows, will be fine only a few minutes and then lock up and I have to turn off.
This has gotten supremely frustrating, I have no idea what to do. Is it my PSU? or my Mobo? IS THIS REAL LIFE?!
EDIT: Scratch built PC (has been running for about a month now no problems), No O/C ever, no recent drivers/updates/software, the hardest my computer has been pushed is playing Skyrim on ultra settings
