I recently got back into Guild Wars 2, and since then my computer has been dying. over. and. over

I'll play for like 20 minutes, then all the sudden everything stops and there's just red artifacts all over the screen and I can't do anything but hard reset my laptop.

Since then it's started happening in other games as well! Though, in those cases, red artifacts flash on screen before the display goes black.

I've looked everywhere I can for help but nothing so far has worked, the two solutions I've seen the most are:

- doing a clean installation of NVIDIA drivers

- changing a specific power option in a Dell bloatware app.

The only thing I've noticed in task manager is that my cpu is using 89-96% while playing the game, which could possible be a part of the problem?

I'm using a
Dell Inspiron Gaming i7577
Intel i5-7300 HQ CPU
GTX 1060 Max Q

Sorry if I'm missing any important info, and thanks in advance.

and sorry if this is sort of a dumb question, but what would be the best way to see the temperature of my computer while gaming?
