Once I was watching youtube after I played a game for 2 hours, when suddenly some lines of different colors appeared on the left side of the screen for 1 second, then on the right side and then all over then I closed my laptop and then it never happened. Also, every time I open the laptop at the bottom of the screen, different artifacts appear for 1 second. Sometimes when I exit a video on youtube that was fullscreen the screen gets jammed on the last frame of the video while I can close google or pause the video and the only solution is to shut down my laptop. I have to mention that I have problems with my laptop hinges. I have NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M 4GB VRAM

Intel Core I7 6700HQ

Samsung SSD 860 Evo

8GB RAM

I don't really know my motherboard . I haven't changed my thermal paste since 2017 (when i bought my laptop) and i think it's dusty in there . Is my GPU dying or i need to change the thermal paste and clean my laptop?

What is the make and model of your laptop? An SKU would help us two fold. What were you taxing the laptop with and at what in-game detail levels were you taxing the laptop with? Which drivers are you running on the laptop?
