For the past few days my display has been crashing to a black screen every time I watch a video or play a game. It's also displayed in black and white and shown green streaks running throughout. The crash only happens after I'm watching a video for a few minutes or if I go into a game like dota it'll crash almost instantly. These are the tests I've done so far.
I uninstalled the current NVIDIA drivers and replaced them with a few previous editions.
I reformatted the computer just to make sure it wasn't viruses, etc.
I've tried several monitors and the problem persists across different monitors.
I've taken out the GPU and used the on-board video my mobo has. This resulted in the computer having more issues and not even being able to load to the desktop. Upon booting up it will simply crash and restart. It made it once all the way to the desktop using just the mobo but quickly shut off and rebooted itself.
I'll be switching out my gpu for an old one a friend has later on tonight to see if that makes a difference. Any thoughts? Thanks!
