Default My display is black

Hi. I do need some help here. My desktop started to have a problem. Anytime when I move it, the mouse freezes and when I restart the computes, the displays goes black. If I move it again, usually restarts after 2-3 tries.
Anyone knows what it could be?
Today I bought a new mic, and when I plugged it this happened again. Make me crazy sometimes.
Thanks a lot for help.

If it shuts down by itself, first thing I'd suspect would be the power supply.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the under my post

did you try unplugging the mic?

also, i guess a better way to see if it is the psu or not, unplug things like graphics cards, sound cards, cd drives and hard drives that arent needed. if it works with less things taking up power then your psu becomes the problem more then likely.

Power supply works fine, the computer opens, I can heard the hard disk working, only the display is dead.
I did try unplugging the mic. I will try to unplug all the cards and see what happens. Thanks for suggestion.
