Why does my graphics card crash and how to fix it? I was playing cs go when it first started crashing, it freezes the screen and audio starts looping, then it says that graphics card crashed but is now working or something. I have the same thing on every game. After restarting my hdmi wouldnt connect but over 10 mins computer started normally. PLEASE HELP!

Please give us more info on the PC specs.

uninstall and reinstall the GPU driver. the driver is most likely crashing. if you have overclocked the card remove the OC from it and see if the problem remains.

have you tried an older driver to see if it helps? After this I recommend Stress testing the system to be sure it is not a CPU part causing the issue.

test Ram first with Memtest86+. Burn to a disk/flash drive and run it from the boot menu for 11 passes minimum.
then test CPU with Prime 95 for 5 hours or more and Intel Burn test set to maximum ram and for 40 runs. (just not at the same time)
then test the GPU with OCCT on GPU test with error check enabled.
