Crashing when launching games and watching youtube

No overclocks, GPU is idling at 42c

So not a hot case or OC issue.

That sounds to me like artifacting which is usually a dying video card, you are apparently running newest drivers which is the next most common thing.  How new is the card?  If it’s in warranty period the cheapest thing to do is have the manufacturer look it over.  Takes time though.

Randomly last night I was playing Sea of thieves with no issues and the whole computer suddenly froze, screens when black and eventually restarted itself. When I tried relaunching the game it said "Video driver crashed and was reset ! make sure your video drivers are up to date , exiting...". I also tried launching Apex Legends which wouldn't load into the lobby before crashing. Watching a YouTube video causes it to crash after a minute.

 

Windows 11 64bit

AMD 2700x

MSI X470 GAMING PLUS

Silverstone Strider Gold ST65F-G Strider Gold 650W

GTX 1080 Ti

 

Stuff I tried:

Uninstall nvidia drivers

Install latest nvidia drivers

System File Checker

 

Had the computer for about 4 years now. The GPU was used already for a year

Win11 yuck I’m not going to know where anything is.  It’s developing a nasty rep too.  Might just be win11.  You got any overclocks on?  What are your temps like?

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

That screams faulty GPU. 

To test it either go buy a new one plug it in test it and if you still have green dots send the new one back. 

 

No money at hand? Bake your GPU. Yes you red that right bake it. Go and find a tutorial how to. Might give you another month or two

Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite,  Ryzen 9 3900x, Dark Rock Pro 4, 16 GB Crucial Ballistix  RGB 3600 MHz RAM, Modified 2060S, 6 Case Fans,  Fractal Design Meshify S2

 

You are awesome, stay safe and healthy.
