My friend had a gtx970 and after 2 years of use it stopped "working". Basically, his screen would go black but he would still be able to hear sound. He decided to buy a new motherboard to try fix the problem and it didn't help. He was using the pc without a GPU and it was working perfectly fine. Now he purchased a new GPU (GTX 1050 ti) and the same problem seems to persist. I installed brand new OS on his PC and tried disabling integrated graphics, but to no avail. I tried to make it work today and the screen recognized the card and turned on. I installed drivers for it and everything seemed to work fine. YouTube worked and I was able to watch videos, but the moment I opened league of legends and tried to load the game, the screen went white and turned off. The PC then restarted itself and nothing worked from that point. Sorry for the long post but this problem is hard to describe. Hopefully, some PC master race mastermind can help. Cheers.
Kind regards, Almond.
