Did you use Display Driver Uninstaller to remove the old gpu drivers(if any) and then install the new one?


Did you overclock this gpu?
That symptom makes me think either a bad Vram OC, or overheating Vram.


If you try auto, what?
Yes, it didn't do anything tho

As of overclock im preaty sure not.I set in msi afterburner - a number i dont know it exactly rn but every time im playing something i set thr fans to 100% and set - memory and cpu something... im not sure what its dooing but i saw somewhere that it will crash less

Auto fan speed

So what you're saying is that you're under-clocking the cpu and memory clock speeds?
That reduces the power consumed and heat produced, so if the gpu is having trouble with one or the other - perhaps both - it's supposed to make the situation more manageable.
The GTX 1650 is already light on the power usage though.

So i shouldnt underclock? It happend anyway before i underclocked the gpu... so im not really sure if it will be a difference...

I'm not saying you shouldn't, but with what I'm seeing so far:
-GTX 1650 already has low power use, so the psu isn't being pushed very hard
-the underclock hasn't fixed the issue, but appears to delay the inevitable
-it crashes even quicker through the auto fan curve, but the auto curve isn't as aggressive as a flat out 100% one.

I'd suggest returning the GTX 1650, and trying a different brand of it. This looks like a bad cooler mount scenario; the Vram isn't being cooled properly.
Those random lights you mention are one of the symptoms of a bad memory OC or overheating Vram.

Ok thanks :) (what does vram mean?, and oc means overclock right?)
