Question PC Randomly Crashing

Mar 1, 2021
Hi Y'all, so semi recently I downloaded Apex Legends and when I did that, ever since my pc had been randomly crashing. The error thing I was receiving was this (Engine Error 0x887a007). After I while I found a video that said that i had to go into the Registry Editor and go to the graphicdrivers and add a TdrLevel or something,etc as well as a clean install of the new driver update. (
) And it seemed to work, pc stopped crashing. However, a week or so later, now it is starting to crash again but I do not receive (or atleast hear) if I get a error message, the screen just completely freezes so i cant do anything. I press the caps lock key to check if the pc is still responding but the caps light doesnt turn on. So now i have no clue whats happening.
Here is my pc specs if you need(had it for like 7 months):
CPU: Intel I7-9700k
RAM: Corsair 2x8gb DDR4 3200MHz
Graphics Card: MSI RTX 2070 Super 8GB
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X52 240mm
Storage: M.2 256GB PCIe ssd
Case: NZXT H210i Mini ITX PC Gaming
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Pro wifi Mini ITX
PSU: 650W Fully Modular 80+ Gold Certified (Corsair RM Series)
OS: Windows 10 Home


Win 10 Master
I would be tempted to run ddu, remove gpu drivers and reinstall again -
that won't change registry I don't think.

below was a few years ago
I believe I have found the solution to this problem (or so it seems so far.)

If you have an NVIDIA card, try opening the NVIDIA control panel and turning on debug mode. (Do this by opening the NVIDIA Control Panel, go to Help -> and check Debug Mode.) This will ignore the manufacturer's overclock settings and use the factory default stock clock. While it seems silly that this would make a difference when EVGA Precision X didn't, somehow it has been working without issue for the past few days. Of course, due to the random nature of this bug, it could easily just be chance that it hasn't crashed or caused any issues thus far.

one for apex legends was simply update GPU driver, I assume that won't work 2 years later, you would be on a newer now.

Driver version 442.50 seems to work -
