So for context, my graphics card in the past has had problems with crashing that I fixed by adding a brace to hold it up. Recently I had to open up my computer to fix a fan bearing and when I did, I removed the brace for a short time. Upon putting everything back together, I got a VGA troubleshooting error and a black screen. After adjusting the height for a bit I managed to get some output but only for a short time before crashing.

I have tried the card in the other slot and in another pc and I got really bad screen artifacting as seen below

At one point I was able to use the card for about 30 minutes and in that time I made sure there were no overclocks and that the drivers were updated. Eventually, my pc crashed and then the card stopped working again.

The card in question is a gigabyte 1070ti on an msi pcmate mobo with a ryzen 2600 and 16gb of ram

I'm really hoping I can save this card so any suggestions would be appreciated.
