What is the system specs ? What are the temps ? A bad PSU could be the problem.

What is the brand/model of the PSU ? just telling 500W is not going to work. Do you have an on-board video on MB, if so try that. (15 pin VGA). I mainly suspect the PSU, and I think its dying a slow death.

i dont know what is the psu model as the sticker isnt very visible and yes there is a onboard vga which is intel chipset 41g and i am using a dvi connector but i tried to use vga 15 pin and the result was the same but i think that that cable was ruined as it was looking bad and was very old and i will check the psu and tell you the result
