The problem started happening suddenly around 6 months ago. Whenever I launch a game, within about 2 - 5 minutes the game would freeze, maybe blink a few times with the sound cutting in and out and then it would go black and an error box with the message :


DirectX function "GetDeviceRemovedReason" failed with DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG ("The device is hung which is typically caused by issues in the graphics driver or alternatively the application"). GPU: "NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti", Driver:46677

I've also had artifacts come up across my screen when I was outside of a game and while there was no game launched. There was one point where my second monitor was completely unresponsive while the first displayed artifacts. The system restarted itself. I've been troubleshooting as to what could be causing it. I've gotten into contact with Nvidia who then had me try more troubleshooting which ended up crashing my pc entirely. The only games I've been able to play are Skyrim and Oblivion. I haven't tried other Bethesda games, but any other game crashed. I wanted to take it into a shop to have it diagnosed, but am looking for a job. Until then I hope that maybe someone would have a solution on here.

Artifacts in general mean gpu memory defect, perhaps you should get ready for a failing gpu.
One solution usually is to decrease the gpu and or memory clocks Mhz, to anacceptable level your gpu can handle without failure.

By decreasing it, would it affect the performance greatly? I thought that it might have been dying. I haven't had it long either. Like two, maybe three years.
