Some more specs would be helpful.

We could use stuff like make/model/speed of processor, type of RAM/ Hard drive, video cards specs, the usual.

Have you tried reseating your graphics card, and ram maybe they got bumped when you were moving the computer to your mums..

When you moved your computer, it didn't get damp did it or been left in a cold place with condensation? otherwise you have probably dislodged the the video card or ram.

Seems to me like its the PSU too. Maybe its not good enough to supply the graphics card for long periods, and its just cutting out.
Definetly not safe!
