lol, that rx 470 is sitting there being like "where's my stuff to render"

Is this happening only under heavy load? What is the code when you get the blue screen?

can you do a scandisc and repair?

HD might be bad or you may be able to salvage it doing the above.

DO YOU HAVE the windows disc?

Few things it can be:

1) CPU/GPU Overheating -> Watch temperatures for both with an application like HW Monitor

2) HDD Errors -> Check with 'scannow /sfc' in cmd

3) RAM Errors -> Check with `mdsched.exe` in cmd, then reboot to run test

4) Bad GPU Drivers -> Update to latest

5) Power supply dying -> Not really a way to check.. so do all the other tests first.. if all others are OK, this might be the problem
