Long story short, the PC was used for gaming and the fans were set to Not spin on the GPU. The PC shut off completely after 10 minutes.

I've now sorted the fans, ran superposition for 10 minutes and the screen went black. PC was still on. Damaged card?

Thank you.

Damaged card? or processor, or power supply, or motherboard, or..there are lot of reasons for black screen, try to replace parts one by one
Personally I got black screen one time with broken motherboard, another time it was a very low voltage on cpu

I've had this scenario w/my 980Ti and 1080Ti when I (or my nephew) forgot to manually turn on the fans attached to the GPU. After the video card cooled off I never had any problems getting it working again.

Did you smell any burning electronics before the system shut down?

Snap, my nephew too! It just smelt like heat, but not burnt, if that makes sense? I rebooted and tried superposition again. This time, an hour later, it was still running. Clocks, voltages, temperatures all perfectly fine.

If it happened only once I wouldn't worry, the GPU forced the PC to shut down to protect itself it's normal behavior, if you have benchmarks you run often and know the scores/average framerate run them and see if you get the usual normal performance just to make sure everything's okay.

I'm glad to hear it's working again. I hope you and your nephew never have those problems again.

Thanks folks. Seems to be working at the moment. I'll give it a good run when I play Metro tomorrow and hopefully all is well. PC power cord is getting hidden next time 😄

Overheating can cause a black screen.
Also the +12v dropping too low can cause this too (seen this from worn out PCIE cables, that when replaced, the +12v (PCIE video sensor) no longer dropped to 11.25v anymore.

Card seems to be working fine.
