Hi, I'm having an issue with my computer.  When the ambient room temperature gets hot my monitor will shut off but the computer which doesn't shut down will be unusable.  I have to restart the computer most of the time the boot order is rearranged in the BIOS, putting it back in the proper order solves the issues.  

I was informed that it was my SSD, at one point months ago, during the winter I had a static charge and I touched the computer and the discharge (the first and only time) destroyed the SSD or so I was told.  I did the next best thing, I went out a bought a new SSD drive (Samsung Evo).  A week after the new drive was installed and I cleaned my computer of dust; the problem resurfaced. It just happened this morning twice, the room temperate is somewhat hot.

 

I'm beginning to lean towards a fan is over heating, and my other SSD and my current SSD are fine. The PSU is spinning well, my guess is the GPU fan ?

It sure sounds like the video card getting hot, did you pull it out and clean that fan also ?Also you can use a third party software like afterburner to raise the speed of the fan a bit.

If the monitor is hot, just pour some water on it, while plugged it.

 

If it cools me down, it must cool down a monitor too.

You need to put the computer in the sink and fill it with water. This is the only safe and effective way to cool it down.

I think when someone gives us a wall of nonsensical babble, they're not exactly entitled to help. Not worth the effort to understand what their babble means, either.
