I came home from a two week break yesterday, today my computer seems to have major issues. I tried playing a couple of games (Realm Royale / Paladins) and after a couple of minutes, pixels in my screen start to flicker, aswell as grey and rainbow colored squares starting to flicker. My game then crashes. Now, a few hours later, I'm having this same issue even when I'm not starting a game but just during normal surfing. The flickering causes my pc to bluescreen and I'm forced to manually shut it down. I've done some research and people seem to have similar issues, where an overheating GPU is the cause of the problem. I'm not sure if that is the issue here, as my pc crashes when I'm doing non demanding tasks aswell.
I must add my pc will be celebrating its 6th birthday soon, even so, I never had any issues untill now. My GPU is a GeForce GTX560 Ti.
What could be the cause of my problem and can anyone help me out to a possible solution? Please do ask if any additional is needed, I also have pictures and a short video clip of the issue.
Had same issue with an older pc, got round it by taking side off the tower and using a room fan to blow on overheating card to keep it cool. Had it running happily for months like that. Gave me time to save up and now got new pc :)
