Hello, recently my PC has been crashing while playing games. The screen goes black, the sound almost "freezes" and starts repeating before eventually the PC reboots within a minute or so. I downloaded Whocrashed to try and figure out what could be causing the crashes and how I could fix them. This was the crash report for the most recent one:

On Tue 8/11/2020 11:49:05 PM your computer crashed or a problem was reported
crash dump file: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP
This was probably caused by the following module: atikmpag.sys (0xFFFFF8052E8E0818)

A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: atikmpag.sys (AMD multi-vendor Miniport Driver, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.).

There was also another report for the same crash:

As a side note, these issues only started a while after I updated my AMD driver in early June for my gpu which I also bought this year. I also have seen my PC crash in some none intensive games like League of Legends but have never seen it crash on desktop or anything like that. Any help to what I can do next is much appreciated!
