Question PC crashes for a second and displays can't recover

So i recently got an issue with some crashes.
After playing like 15-20 mins, PC crashes for a second and display freezes until I restart windows. Everything runs as smooth as before but the only issue I got is that it crashes often like that.

Usually happens on bigger games like gta and etc. It started to happen after the latest windows update (KB5004237).
At the beginning I thought it could be some kind of driver problem, so i tried to reinstall and update graphics and display drivers, but it did not work. Event manager doesn't show anything either.

1* I assume it could be faulty PSU but i'm not entirely sure about that, because it all started after the windows update, never had any problems with this pc before that.
2* There may be a problem that something conflicts with my graphics driver or graphics card itself, not entirely sure.

Any suggestions what I should try out, before doing entire reset on it?

Also, i kept my task manager open once, and i saw that, before displays crashes my gpu went from 40% to 99% with just a second. I didn't see any other suspicious thing at that time.

**I'm not able to rollback windows update anymore so I guess i'll reinstall windows if there isn't any other way.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

When you reinstalled your GPU drivers, did you remove said drivers sing DDU? When reinstalling you're advised to install all relevant drivers in an elevated command, i.e, Right click installer>Run as Administrator.

Make and model of your motherboard and the BISO version? Make and model of your PSU and it's age?
