Question Coloured screen crashes after new graphics card

Jun 8, 2020
Roughly a year ago, I purchased a new GTX 1650 GPU for my PC. Since then, I've had crashes that involve my screen turning a color (I've had it be yellow, black, blue, and white before). The audio still works, but my microphone stops working. Here's everything I know:

Doesn't occur on any monitors connected to my motherboard (using internal GPU)
Might not be the graphics card, as I had it replaced and the issue persisted
I've purchased both a new PSU and CPU cooler, both had no effect
I've attempted downloading NVIDIA drivers and using the drivers that came with the GPU, no effect
I've tried updating BIOS, no effect
I have 2 case fans so overheating is unlikely
Issue doesn't appear to happen when playing VR (I've tried No Man's Sky VR via Remote Desktop with my Oculus Quest, it was fine, but when I tried playing it out of VR, issue occured)
Aforementioned VR quirk may be due to lack of testing and seemingly random occurrence of this issue
Current Specs:
Intel i5-7400 CPU
Asus H110M-C Motherboard
Corsair CX650M PSU
8 GB RAM (forgot the brand/type, sorry)
1TB Hard Drive (I think it's Seagate)

Any and all help would be appreciated as this is preventing me from playing games like Squads and Deceit with my mates. Thanks in advance!
How is the GPU connected to the monitor? DP, HDMI, , DVI, VGA adapter

check temperature of your CPU and GPU

did you connect the power cord PCIe to the GPU?

Intel ME (management engine) is updated as well? Eventually use the intel update utility to update the chipset driver as well

to have a look what the problem could be:
run userbenchmark.com and post the http link of your result, e.g. https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/28977730

Reset the BIOS by jumper clrCMOS or JBAT or similar (eventually you will have to set the bios priority correctly after that)

check windows integrity
open the command prompt as administrator and type DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

clean boot

check the memory by running memtest.org usb autoinstaller (bootable USB flash drive)

check the hard drive for errors with its manufacturer´s tool (seatools)

use ddu uninstaller to remove all previous drivers and reinstall the latest graphics driver from nvidia.com
