It is easy to fix by just removing the motherboard and checking the placement of the standoffs under it to make sure there only standoffs where they line up with a hole in the motherboard where it can be connected with a screw. If there is one that is not lined up then remove it.

I forgot I was having a problem before I ever disassembled it in the first place. in september >_>
The screen will black out while I'm in the middle of something. Completely randomly.
Nooooooo idea why. Can't shut off with power button, have to cut off power from the PSU to power down.

Different monitor same problem video on motherboard.
Power should be able to shut off with power button. If not then you may have a faulty power switch on case or motherboard may be failing.

When I used to play a game that was 100% fullscreen the blackout wouldn't happen. Even if it was for like 6 hours at a time.
But if I'm not playing a game it'll take like 30 minutes on average

If system problem then I'm afraid a motherboard video chipset may be the issue.

And it works fine with another monitor (right now the CD-rom is working fine with the power, it comes out and everything. just doesn't read CD's. IDE cable is unplugged right now as im typing this)

That includes blowing away all partitions and starting with a native drive?
