    You are not unique. I had a graphic card failure some time ago. It was a good opportunity to buy something better.

    Make sure your power supply has sufficient capacity.

    Cheers,

    It does have sufficient power to use the radeon rx 580.


    Thanks, huub vink.

    Try a different version of the graphics card driver,
    I found with my Radeon card, installing the latest isn't always the best.
    What card have you got btw?

    Overheating probably, or early days of failure.

    Remove and thoroughly clean, printed circuit surface (gently), and cooling fan blades (thoroughly). Also make sure GPU 'radiator' is not blocked with fluff etc (don't blow stuff into it!).

    If it's the correct driver for that card, then highly unlikely to cause that type of issue.

    Cheers

    I'm using the all in one catalyst driver, but you can find other versions for your card here

    Ok, you may be interested in a post in CFS3 section, if you're using latest drivers... seems theres an issue with DirectX 9 support in those drivers that cause random crashes.
