I'd replace the video card or the motherboard.
I'm in over my head with my computer and would appreciate some help.
The computer seems to work fine in every regard apart from these random crashes. the crashes seem to happen at any given time, so not only when the computer is under significant stress. I even had them happen whilst I was in the Bios.
before a crash occurs, the screen usually distorts in one of three ways. These distortions seem to share a characteristic pattern of diagonal stripes or dots.
after these distorted flickerings, the computer either completely freezes or a distorted blue image comes up, followed by an automatic reboot.
I tried updating windows 10 as well as running a clean installation for my graphics drivers but I don't really know what to next.
these are the specs of my computer:
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz, 3501MHz, 4 core
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570
RAM: corsair 8gb
Motherboard: Asus P8H77-V
operating system: Windows 10
Any help whatsoever would be very much appreciated.
