I have had an issue with crashing while playing intensive games with my gaming rig since around 2017. The games crash in one of two ways each time. Either a light green/brown-looking blank screen fills my monitor, the light on my graphics card turns off for a second, then my computer will restart really quickly. Or, the game will randomly freeze, and I have to CTRL+ALT+DLT to close the game. Sometimes I will also get a notification from the game launcher that "Display drivers have stopped working", or something like that.

To try to fix the issue, I have:
-Switched out every single component for new except for storage components.
-Did a full computer reset and deleted every file through Windows.
-Uninstalled my graphics driver and reinstalled it.
-Downloaded the most recent graphics drivers.

I have no idea what else to do. Please help. I pretty much have a new computer at this point, and it is still happening. I will try any suggestions, seriously.

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

Include PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition.

Intensive game play can lead to a PSU prematurely reaching its' designed EOL (End of Life).

Disk drives: make, model, capacity, how full?

Look in Reliability History for error codes, warnings, and even informational events.

Many errors and varying errors are likely power related.
