    PC Black screening whilst gaming.


    Hello, for the last week or two my PC has been going to black screen every single time I try and play a game of League of Legends. The PC remains on, but I can't see or hear anything and am forced to use the power button.I have spent a week trying to troubleshoot this issue, I have run memory tests and scannows, I have installed a clean version of windows from the cloud, I have purchased a replacement headset as initially I thought it was driver issues.I'm at my wits end, I'm not hugely computer savvy and I would like to fix this as I can't really afford to buy a brand new computer.

    :)
