Monitor shuts off, windows stops working.

I was having a problem whereas my computer would continue to run, but the monitor would shut off and windows would stop working. What was happening in the BIOS the boot order was being rearranged. I bought a new SSD drive a week ago, put it in so far so good up until today, the problem resurfaced.

Before putting in the new SSD the problem would surface frequently, this is the first time in almost a week with the new SSD that the problem resurfaced. I replaced some connectors, I'm at a loss what is causing

Restore the boot order to default and save the settings. If the problem arises again, you can reformat it and clean install. Make sure you backup your content, first.

Interesting twist, when the temperature in my house gets hotter, the increase of the computer shutting down increases. Is it a heat issue with a fan, which fan ? The PSU fan is spinning it's either the CPU or GPU fan if I'm finally onto something ?

Can you get Speccy by Piriform to see if it's overheating, or some kind of diagnostic tool?

Speccy can tell you if a computer is overheating, it looks more like a diagnostics tool to me.
