Random question but could a monitor cause a computer to crash?
Very unlikely me thinks, but the wrong driver for your monitor perhaps?
While it might -seem- to, monitors are extremely unlikely to -cause- a crash given that they receive info and afaik don't do much in the way of actually interacting two-way with the computer proper. Unless of course you're using some shady driver/software that comes with the monitor, that could definitely cause conflicts.
Built a system for a guy and he says it blue screens and also before blue screens has lines appear on the screen. Im using it right now and got prime on and nothings happening, im trying to force it to crash but its not doing it. Only thing i can think of is that the ram.
lines appearing on the screen? gpu playing up by any chance???
