Question Would games pull on my CPU built in graphics instead of my GPU

About a month ago I was having constant game and blue screen (Videos_Scheduler_Internal_Error) crashes that were caused by my faulty GPU. I had it replaced under warranty about a month ago and I have had no blue screen problems since then and my games crash a lot less, but they still crash with the same error which is something along the lines of “UE4 loss of connection to D3D device”.

Now when I tried to run my games (Destiny 2 and Master Chief Collection) using the CPUs built in graphics when the GPU was being replaced they would run, but would occasionally get the error code crash.

Since the new GPU seemed to fix the constant game and blue screen crashes I do not believe it to be the problem. I am wondering is it possible that the games are trying to either use both the the GPU and CPU for graphics and that is causing the crash or they are just trying to use the CPU?

Specs:
GPU: EVGA GTX 1050 Ti
CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G 3.5 GHz Quad-Core Processor
PSU: Corsair 1200 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
Motherboard: MSI X470 GAMING PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard
