I have a 1050 ti that had no problems for about a year. But now everytime I have it on my computer it crashes after an hour or so ( when it crashes, I see that the background through the taskbar gets black and the disk usage is 100% and when I click on anything it shows Not responding and I have to restart the computer). I can still move the mouse when it happens. It can happen when the system is either on idle or load. The temps of the gpu are usually below 50 when the system freezes. I have a 400w Corsair PSU. When i use the integrated graphics it works fine. What might be causing this?

When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs. List them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

include the version for your OS(if you're on Windows 10). The other matter is, how old is the PSU? I don't recall Corsair making a 400W unit in this day and age,. If it's the CX400...you're going to need something better in quality.

Also check and see which BIOS version you're currently on.
