Constant crashing to black screen with monitor losing signal

For the last 2 weeks my computer has been crashing to a black screen with my monitor losing its signal and the audio cutting out. Happens either while gaming or browsing the internet. To turn back on i have to either reset or sometimes resort to unplugging the PSU.

Several times over the 2 weeks I've had pop ups saying flash or graphics driver crashed/stopped working. Windows says theres a problem with my graphics driver but then says the solution cant be listed.

I've tried updating my graphics drivers, going back to an older version when i had no probelms, as well as update audio drivers. I've defragmented my disc, cleaned out registrys with ccleaner and checked to make sure temperatures arent too high (they are only 30-35 degrees).


What else can I do? I'm going to try blowing out my computer un case its too dusty or something, but does anyone have any idea why this is happening and how i can fix it? Or if no one knows does anyone know another good forum i can ask for help?
