My PC has restarted three times (at separate intervals), directly to black screen.

This occurred after opening Google Chrome, or a new google chrome tab.

I have uninstalled google chrome.
  • Checked component connections, everything snug.
  • Checked temps, low temps (31C CPU, 51C GPU)
  • Cleaned PC, dust free.
  • Ran memtest
  • Memory usage was sub 15%
Any ideas what's causing the black screen and reboot?

System Specs:
  • Win 10
  • 32GB RAM
  • RTX 3080
  • Intel 10900k
  • 1440p display
  • 3 Drives (2 NVME and 1 SSD)
  • 850W Plat PSU
  • Latest Driver: GeForce 522.25

Interesting update here. I uninstalled chrome.

However, this time I had a black screen, restart when opening a picture (jpg) on an NVME drive.

Could this be Graphics Driver related?
