PC crashes randomly, totally unresponsive.

So, in the last couple of days I've been experiencing 1 to 2 crashes per day. I don't know what the cause is but I think it's the memory.

When crash occurs monitor doesn't go black but instead keeps the last screen before the crash. For example, if I'm on my desktop screen and pc crashes, monitor would display my desktop until I restart my pc.

Weird thing is that all fans are working. PSU fan, CPU and GPU fans and case fans are working. Even weirdest thing is that my keyboard backlight turns off, but only if I press a key.

Full system configuration? Sounds like the GPU or Power Supply. Have you used DDU to reinstall the drivers?

CPU: AMD A8-7600 Radeon R7 4C

GPU: ASUS EXPEDITION GTX 1050 Ti 

MB: ASRock FM2A88M Extreme 4+

RAM: Kingston 8GB 1866MHz CL10 DIMM DDR3 16 GB (8x2) 

PSU: Thermaltake Smart 530W

 

I reinstalled the drivers a week ago by going to Device Manager and uninstalling GPU driver there. Now I think that was a mistake.

That's the cause of your issues. You made a driver mess. Get Display Driver Uninstaller DDU and use that to clean all drivers

Why didn't it cause any problems immediately? That's what made me think it's not the drivers.

Updated the drivers and it happened again.

You removed both AMD and Nvidia drivers? And installed 445 WHQL Nvidia drivers?

Yes. I used DDU to remove drivers in safe mode, then installed new one from Nvidia website.

Do you have access to a different power supply?
For testing

Also, try running the iGPU and see if the problem is contained to the 1050 Ti
