I dont know why this is happening. I built this system about 1 month ago. This happened before, but kinda stopped. But it happened twice today.

The problem is that, I am using my computer, and i didnt touch it for few minutes, and all of a sudden, screens turns black, (monitor light turns yellow , as of my monitor is in a energy saving mode when not in used) and i cannot control my keyboard ( meaning i press the num lock + caps lock button, the lights dont respond). Then the computer fans would make a lot of noises, (max speed)

This would sometimes also happen when i try to wake my computer up from sleep mode. AND sometimes the computer would turn itself on from sleep and enter this " screen not on, keyboard won't respond, and super fan mode" ( the problem)

Help please. I have all the updated drivers for my vid card and audio card already.

my specs are:
asrock 970 Extreme3
Nvidia GeForce GTX 560
AMD Phenom II X4 980
Western Digital 500 gb HD - Win 7 OS
2 OCZ SSD
8gb G.Skill Sniper series RAM
Sound blaster Audigy SE

What power supply you have?

To me it sounds like your system overloaded because it peaked its max on the PSU.. and everything was stressed. Just like if you took a graphics card and gave it enough power unproperly you would hear the fan speed rev up to what would sound like 3000 rpms until fixed. Or you possibly could have had a bad driver or heck even a hidden BSOD that went wrong. I have had half the issue you had... except with two different computers... The monitor would just cut display except this computer, the display came back up... ' I'm gonna tag this thread to see to it your helped. its 330 am here so i need some sleep..

Thank you for your reply. This doesnt happen when im max out during gamig. It only happens when im not using it or after putting it to sleep. I have a 500w psu. Should be enough?

You haven't overclocked correct? cause you should have enough unless you have like 10-15 case fans running

Update your BIOS. Your computer is rebooting. The fans you hear is normal during POST (when the computer first turns on, before the Windows screen). This is normal for motherboards that have wake on USB issues.

Alright. Ill try updating my bio and see what happens. But i believe that sometimes it will just enter this "max fan and no video" mode. Ill definitly give bio update a try but i think i did that already and problem still occurs. I have 6 fans running including cpu fan

I just updated my BIOS, but it happened again right before i downloaded the update. When it happened , i went in to the BIOS and see if anything was wrong, but i didn't spot anything. However, the no screen problem happened again while i was looking at the BIOS.

After all that, i finally updated the BIOS. I don't know what is wrong. This happened a lot when i first try to build my system as well. After i installed the update, i went in to the event viewer , i found these 3 errors at the time of crash blackness with loud fans.:
