Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive.

When the GPU (GTX 1070) is being used, any time I play a game or after about 5 minutes of the computer being on, I start getting freezing issues. The computer goes into a kind of long stutter, where it will be frozen for 5 seconds, then move a little, then freeze again, until I shut it off manually with the power button. My mouse cursor also always disappears when this happens, not sure why. One time I even started getting crazy vertical lines and weird artifacts on the screen as well.


List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.

At first I was worried this was a heat issue, as sometimes the processors will clock down to prevent damage, but using HWmonitor I noticed the heat never went up by much. I also noticed when I was using a GPU usage meter, the usage would spike really high sometimes when this was happening. These freezes have not ever given me a blue screen, or shut the computer off, I do that manually because its useless to try and do anything with it in that state.


I've uninstalled and reinstalled the graphics drivers two or three times, using the special NVidia driver uninstaller to make sure they were really gone. I've been using my computer without the GPU for a few days now, and since removing it, I have not experienced the issue (Although I can't play the Witcher with sad onboard graphics).


I suspect that this issue could be one of three things: The power supply, the motherboard, or the GPU. If you guys have any good ideas for narrowing down the cause, I would be very grateful. I unfortunately don't have an extra PSU lying around, or another system to test the card in, so if all else fails, I'll have to bring it into a shop. I would like to avoid that, however, because for them to really find the problem they may need admin privileges to my PC.
