PC won t turn on after freezing issues?

For around 1-2 months, my (5 yr old) PC started screen freezing, sometimes white, black and blue screens.

I updated the GPU drivers, installed windows 10 and other updates, etc.

It stopped for 1-2 weeks.

Then started again, and would shut down and freeze after every 30 minutes.

Now it won t boot up at all.

There s still a light on the GPU.

I unplugged and re-checked all of the cables.

For a little while it made weak start-up noises, but never actually turned on.

When I hit the power button, sometimes the screen will show "signal - searching", but the PC itself won t turn on.

    You most likely have either a bad motherboard or a bad psu.

    Many issues are possible.

    Power supply - weakening over time,if you provided more detail about each of the PC Components and power supply, it would be helpful. Screen freezing can be a 12 volt output failure.

    Graphics card failure. Some PCs have both cpu integrated and a separate card. Removing the card and cold reboot and moving the cable to the motherboard from card helps to determine it, but note it also reduces load on power supply

    dirt and dust causing intermittent shorting

    less likely is a storage (HDD or SSD) or ram related issue

    It also does nor describe like a motherboard fail other than dirt-dust

    That sounds like some hardware problems. It could be a bad graphics card, bad/failing PSU, bad motherboard, or a myriad of other things. Without being able to see your PC in person, it is very tough to properly diagnose it.
