    AMD Northbridge errors causing crash when gaming

    nut.exe

      Hi all,

      As of late, whenever I play games (Overwatch, Rust, CSGO, pretty much any game), randomly my screen will go blank and have vertical lines from end to end, and then hard reboot. I checked the event manager and it said it was an AMD northbridge error. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm playing the game or not, it's happened when it was in the background and I was browsing online, and its happened several games in. I updated BIOS and that seemed to work for like a day, but then it started up again. Is Northbridge a GPU or motherboard component? I've been trying to figure out how to fix this issue but have found nothing besides buying a new part. I've been unable to fix this issue and if anyone could offer some alternatives to buying a new part that would be awesome!

      Thanks

       

      Desktop Specs:

      GPU: MSI R9 280x (radeon crimson 16.1.12 I believe)

      CPU: AMD FX-6200

      PS: Corsair Builder 500W Bronze+

      RAM: 2x 4GB

      OS: Win 10 x64
