COMPUTER SPECS (and stuff):
Build: Custom
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 760 1)
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. P1.50 (BIOS Date: 10/02/13 21:01:46 Ver: 04.06.05)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 Pro3 R2.0 (Serial Number M80-44023300021)
CPU: AMD FX-8370E Eight-Core Processor
RAM: Crucial Technology DDR3 8GB RAM (Serial Number A61496A2)
GPU: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series 4GB
So the problems started here, for anyone who's interested. Said problems have stopped, but new ones have arisen.
In an effort to fix my computer, I wished to try running it without my video card. I removed it, only to find that the motherboard I use hasn't got anywhere to plug a screen into, so I placed the card back, screwed it in, and closed the case. The fans still spin when I run the card, and everything seems in order.
Now, for some reason, the second monitor I use is not detected, and I also seem to not be able to run games such as Team Fortress 2 or such. As an added issue, the usually consistant hum of my fans in my computer case are now fluctuating every now and then. That added problem seems to have started happening since I changed the fans to always go full out in my BIOS. On the bright side, my computer case is cold to the touch, and the issue in the last post is not happening right now. ^^;
EDIT: Also tested Minecraft, Starbound, Terraria, Factorio, Garry's Mod and Enter The Gungeon. All of those come up with some form of error saying that they could not set up a display. Garry's mod was the only exception, simply ignoring when I tried to run it. :c

EDIT 2: Can not run ANY game. Commonly some form of issue related to DirectX. Cannot run half of my other programs, and any that do run will either have a higher chance of crashing, or come with more lag than before. Much more.

Also, apparently the issue I though I rid myself of before has returned, so I'm feeling pretty bummed about it all atm. ;w;
