1. uninstall GPU Driver with DDU in SAFEMODE
3. clean install of 16.7.3 OR 16.9.2
if error still persists its either the PSU (not enough power to your GPU) or your GPU is damaged (maybe because of OC - or damaged from factory)
usually with this error i think its the GPU that is damaged -> if DDU doesnt work use warranty of your vendor
Thanks for that. I tried a reinstall using DDU to clear it in safe mode, same issue occurring unfortunately. Weird thing is that it has no problem at all actually running the games provided they're in borderless windowed mode.
Everything is installed at factory defaults (ie. I didn't overclock anything).
Is there any way of ensuring it's not the PSU before I return it (beyond physically testing it with a multimeter - which I don't have)? I'm using an Antec Neo Eco II Bronze 550W which I believe should be more than sufficient.
If it helps at all, the rest of the PC specs are: Gigabyte GA-B150M-D3H, i5-6500, 16 gb 2133 DDR4, Sandisk 240GB SSD Plus, WD Blue 1TB, and I re-used an old ODD and a Xonar DX sound card.
can you provide a picture of your screen? and make an screenpicture via windows ans save it in paint to see if only your screen is broken
but usually if DDU didnt help and GPU error still persists you should RMA
