Hello around this time last year I had put this pc together: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/2dCnXv

unfortunately I have been having problems and need help troubleshooting my computer.

I will be using my computer when all of a sudden the screens will go black and my gpu fans will spike, all audio still plays in the background and I can still maneuver around blindly.
it will stay like this until I either restart my pc or power it down, sometimes when the pc turns back on I will get a notification saying "display driver failed to start"

I have tried many little solutions and so far none of which have made any progress towards fixing it, I'm hoping someone on here is able to help me find the root of the problem.

*another note I notice it crashes when skimming through youtube videos especially when the resolution is anything above 720p, also sometimes just instantly crashes on certain games.

Could be due to lack of power. Do both 8pin power connectors have own leads from PSU ?
