OK finally could you check the cable between the computer and monitor, ensure that it is secure and both plugs look OK with no apparent damage

Clear the dust... Then run the system as normal and let me know how it is behaving.. 

 

Also do you have any minidumps at C:\windows\minidumps ?

So it just happened again so I restarted my computer and now it's displaying the Windows 10 startup screen with the loading indicator. It's been 5 mins which will probably stretch out to a few hours if it even starts.

I can see and hear the fan running through the case, the graphics card's light are on.

There is an alarming amount of dust coated on the fan.

 

After having switched my computer off for 45 minutes it juts turned on normally now.

OK you need to give your system a good cleaning to remove the dust as it is a transient overheating problem

I think that the system is basically sound but you do need to keep an eye on temps for a bit and ensure that vents and fans are clear :)

Unfortunately it has already crashed once today after about an hour of use and just crashed again. The first time I left it for about 45 mins(turned off) and then it started normally which is what I plan to do it now. Just launched without having to wait any time
