Hi KitKatBarXD,

Can you still see your start bar or anything like that when this happens? If so, go to C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Game\ and run League of Legends.exe - do you get an error?

Well, my first suggestion is to make sure the cable is securely in the back of your monitor and your graphics card.

From there I'd try:

- Replacing the monitor cable
- Testing another monitor, if possible
- If you have another port in your computer, try using that one.

Just make sure the cable is pushed securely into it (IE: Not loose)

This is fairly helpful:

It seems your power supply is only 250W - that wouldn't be able to handle most modern graphics cards.

Before you try to buy a new GPU I'd advise testing it with another monitor, incase the monitor is going faulty.
