For 2 days now when ever I would launch a game then my pc would crash and show the blue screen error.
Specs:
Gpu: Nvidia 8800 gt
Cpu: Pentium g4400
Ram: 8gb ddr4
I think I might be an over heating problem because when I touch my gpu after it is pretty hot.
Almost forgot to mention this only happens when my gpu is plugged in the pc, when I take it out everything works perfect.

So if upgrade to a 430 or 500w psu then it will help?

500W, it might help solve the problem and if the all power sources of the PSU are good it will help preventing to buy another one for a longer period than the 350W does.

I know I should do it regardless but do you think there are other solutions

I got a 430w psu and it still didn’t help. I am getting a blue screen of death with the error code TDR_VIDEO_FAILURE when ever I launch a game or I will launch the game it will load a little and then it will crash and an error will pop up saying nvidia open gl fail or something like that

Ok so I finally fixed it. It turns out it was over clocked so i under clocked it and increased the fan speed because it was over heating
