I think it is GPU related

Hello, everyone ! For the last 2 days I have been experiencing this problem with my PC. For some reason everytime I try to play a game which features 3D models, as mostly any game features these days, my screen goes either black or random combinations of colours(ex: blue&green) in alternating vertical stripes, then the PC no further responds to any command (alt+f4, ctrl+alt+delete etc, alt+tab) but if not turned off by holding the start up button, it will continue to run like nothing ever happened. Sometimes there's even a a "crrrrrr" sound coming through the audio input, but mostly when I'm lucky enough to get the black screen. Things are going on like this: I enter the game, I get to the menu screen then when I try to enter the game itself and get through the loading screen the PC reacts the way mentioned above. I tried with Dark Souls, CSGO, Sniper Elite v2, Day of Defeat, in other words I have even tried older games with low requirements. Then I tried to rule Brawlhalla, a 2D game, and nothing happened, everything would go the way it's supposed to. I installed the last drivers for both GPU, CPU and even for Windows. I tried some older drivers for GPU and the same thing happened. I don't know what could cause this, but I hope someone may be able to figure out something to atleast have an idea over what has to be done.
