    Windows 8.1: PC randomly crashes (no BSOD, monitor active)

    My PC randomly "crashes". I am using a 5 monitor setup. I have a regular VGA card (which has HDMI and DVI output to 2 monitors), and also have 3 of those USB graphics cards (displaylink).

    I have the most up-to-date drivers. About twice a week, the PC will just freeze. There is no BSOD. This "crash" results in my monitor just being stuck in the same state. I can not move my mouse, and can not do anything. CTRL+ALT+DEL is not responsive.

    What tools can I use to diagnose the root cause?

    Any suggestion appreciated.

    With out your system specs it's hard to say. If I was to guess...I would say it would be with you PSU, with all those monitors hooked up.
