So I've been having this issue where my monitors will turn black and an annoying repeating sound will play through my headphones. It seems like it should be a graphics card issue because of the monitors and the computer itself doesn't actually turn off completely, but I do have to do a hard shut down every time it does that. It is completely random though, which is the weird thing. Sometimes I'll have a gaming session of like 4-5 hours with it doing nothing but other times I'll have just started a game or just turned on the computer and it does this. My graphics card is the ASUS Strix RX 470 4GB version but nothing physically seems to be wrong with it. I took off the shroud and cleaned everything out and nothing seemed to be wrong. Temperatures are always well below for it to be causing any damage (unless the sensors are messed up, but I highly doubt it). I will say that my motherboard had issues with audio not working but that was really the only problem, I ended up just getting a sound card because I didn't want to send back the motherboard and re-do everything (this was a long time ago, around march of 2018 I'd say). But anyways, that's pretty much it. Sorry for the paragraph of text. I would love any insight anyone has on this topic because it has been bugging me for a few months now, and I am just at a loss as to what the issue is.

P.S. I forgot to mention earlier the drivers are up to date, I just installed the latest driver a few days ago and it didn't seem to help at all (the computer still crashes).
Thanks in advance.
