Hey all
So I built a pc a few months back, here are the specs:
Cpu: Ryzen 5 3600
Cpu cooler: BeQuiet Pure Rock Slim
Mobo: B450 TOMAHAWK MAX
Psu: Corsair TX850M (I know it's overpowered, long story)
Ram: 16GB (8&8) G.Skill Aegis 3000Mhz
Gpu: EVGA geforce gtx 460 1GB superclocked (this is not a temporary gpu, just one I got from a friend to operate the pc until I get a custom rx 5700)
HDD: Western Digital Blue 1TB
SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 250GB
Case: Cougar MX330-X

The motherboard is running on the latest bios.
The RAM is on xmp profile, although this shouldn't matter because the problem persists no matter if it's on or off.

In the first few months the pc was doing just fine but about a week ago the first crash happened. I was playing 2016s Doom when the screen froze right when some green scan-line-esque squares appeared. The pc just restarted when this happened and my save files got corrupted.
After that point I've encountered a few crashes that seem to happen randomly whenever I play games (sometimes I'm playing just fine, In fact I didn't have a single crash during my second campaign in Doom up until the end credits). Doom, Portal 2 and League of Legends all have crashed the computer at least once, with League crashing it both times I fired it up after the first crash.
Minecraft is the only game that hasn't crashed the computer, though I only tested it once.

So, I believe it's the GPU for a few reasons. It's obviously a pretty old GPU and I have no idea what it's been through.
The CPU can't be it since I'm confident I installed the cooler correctly without messing up the already applied thermal paste and its temps are really good, idling at around 43 degrees and going as high as 80 degrees under heavy load (Blender rendering on all threads), plus the pc wasn't having any problems at all prior to the crashes.
The PSU also seems fine, before the crashes started happening the pc was perfectly responsive and worked fine under load and everything.

The crashes were happening only while playing games, even just sitting on the menu sometimes.

Well today is what prompted me to make this thread. I was playing Doom again, just finished the campaign and was watching the end credits. The screen froze again, displaying another visual error, and Windows blue-screened saying it ran into a problem with the BSOD VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR. I let it finish and it booted up again, except this time it crashed while booting up. It restarted again, and presented me with a screen giving me two options, one was the advanced settings and the other was to let Windows try to recover or something in the lines of that. I clicked the recovery button and at that point the pc crashed again. It went through this again and presented me with the same screen, at which point I went to the advanced settings and clicked continue.
The pc booted up just fine and that's where we are now. I shut it down normally and checked the interior once more, to be sure. Everything looks fine, all fans are spinning while it's on, there are no weird fan speed ups.
The visual errors occur every time it crashes.

Until I get my hands on a new gpu - hopefully by Christmas - I at least need to diagnose the problem, even if I won't be able to fix it. If you need more information or something specific, go ahead and ask, the pc should be ok as long as it doesn't decide to die on me in games, which I won't attempt to play until I've found a solution.

Check the linker for more info about the error. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/fix-video-scheduler-internal-error-blue-screen-error

Like they said:
  1. Run SFC. How to https://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-run-system-file-checker-analyze-its-logs-in-windows-7-vista
  2. Use DDU to uninstall the GPU driver first, then reinstall it.

3) Test the gtx460 in your friend PC, or other PC, if you can.
Thank you for your reply. I did everything as you told me, plus updated my bios since I noticed a new update was available. Unfortunately I don't have the time to test games on it right now but I'll reply again when I get to that.

First test with Doom failed. After that the pc doesn't seem to want to fix itself, it crashes upon startup and has artifacts all over the place.
The error remains to be the video scheduler internal error.
