    Programming is something that I enjoy and want to make a career out of. But, I usually tend to start things and not finish them. Any advice on how I can finish what I start?

Check the fans see if they are working, boot into the BIOS and itll tell you the temp of some things - if they are pretty high then you might wanna replace those.

I am pretty sure if it damaged anything with electricity it would be the power thing though.. I think its suppose to absorb it.. you might wanna try and replace it out and see if it works.

Do you have spare parts for testing? lol

I am also thinking this might be caused by overheating. You should check the temperature while you are using it and see if it is slowly rising.

Well according to google

59 degrees Celsius = 138.2 degrees Fahrenheit


I am pretty sure 138 is a bit hot. But you have two working fans so I am not very sure. If you have spare parts just start switching things out until it starts working fine lol.

59C doesn't seem that hot, IMO. 45C for your CPU seems fine also, if not a bit low. You can consult this page/chart (about middle of page) to see what your max temp is: What is my Computers Maximum CPU Temperature? | Technibble

When this happens, is your computer shutting off or just the monitors? Does your computer still have power? It could be a bad video card if so.
