Solved

Computer shut down during a game.

So to start off these are my specs I built it myself about a month and a half ago haven't had problems but it started too happen two days ago.

I3-6100
Gskill aegis 2x4gb ddr4-2133 ram
Msi-h110m gaming mobo
Evga 500w 80+ bronze psu
Msi 1050ti OC T 4gb graphics card
FSP CMT210 case

Everything worked fine until two days ago when I was playing fortnite my monitor crashed with the sound block looping before my whole pc reset itself. I thought it was a fluke
But then later that night it happened in pubg as well. Then last night it shut off like the power cord was kicked out during pubg and I lost power to my keyboard.

Today I can turn it on but I get no power to my keyboard and the monitor doesn't turn on but all my leds do and you can hear the fans running.

    Sounds like a PSU issue. I've had people complain about loss of power to USB devices. Having a few things plugged in (printer, mouse and keyboard), they'd have issues with the mouse not working or keyboard would power off. Issue was the PSU failing and being unable to provide power to everything.

    When a system powers off it's generally 1 of 2 things:
    1) GPU, CPU or even the PSU is over heating and safety measures in place, the part over heating is designed to power off in order to prevent possible damage to the piece of hardware.
    2) failing PSU or PSU that lacks enough power to keep all equipment properly powered.

    Have you monitored the temps for your GPU and CPU? If temps are low on the CPU and GPU (CPU should ideally be under 70C and GPU should ideally be under 85C), then it's probably a faulty/failing PSU.

  3. I know the temps were around 100 degrees Fahrenheit for everything

    I tired switching the ram because that's what my friend told me to do but now when I hit the power button nothing happens no led bo fans nothing.

    Before I took the ram out the gpu's fan wasn't running and it always has and a system fan also wasn't running and there was an led lit up labeled CPU

    I used a different psu and the computer runs and posts. Thanks!
