During the game, no matter how hard it is, artifacts always appear, but the PC is fully functional

Copper Contributor
I recently bought a new video card for my PC and decided to play video games, but during the game the PC simply restarts without a blue screen. I checked all the components for malfunctions, but they all pass the stress test without problems. I tried everything, but nothing changed. Games crash at random times, maybe after 10 minutes of play or maybe after 5 hours help solve the problem here is the dump file::

From the research I have done it seems to point to a Hardware or Memory Issue. You may want to double check Your New Graphics card and make sure it's seated and Running properly. From what I see in the Dump file it is saying that you have a Graphics Card Issue. You may also want to check that The proper drivers were installed and Update for the Card. Also make sure that the BIOS is properly updated and the settings are adjusted for your new card. Overclocking can cause issues as well.

Another thing is make sure your card is properly vented and cooled during operation as overheating can also cause it to fail.  If the Updated Drivers are causing problems consider using an older set of Drivers.  Make sure there are no Residual Drivers from the Previous Graphic Card installation to interfere with the new Card.

What is the brand name of video card? Make sure the device driver is up to date.

@Smithchow Video card macro Arktek And I canceled both old and new drivers, now the newest one is being built, but the games still crash

Running stress tests on your GPU, such as FurMark or 3DMark, can help identify potential hardware issues. If artifacts appear during these tests, it may indicate a problem with your GPU.
