Keep computer and video card adequately cool
Overheating can cause your video card’s chipset to lock up, so make sure your PC and your video card are adequately cooled.
Upgrade power supply
If you are using a desktop PC, try upgrading your computer’s power supply. If the power supply is in poor quality, it will be unable to provide adequate power to all your computer’s components. In this case, it may result in a “brown out” of sorts in your system. Remove the old power supply and replace it with a more appropriate one. If you are sure how to do this, go to the near computer repair shop for check and have it fixed.
Replace video card
If the video card is damaged, the problem would occur. After trying above solutions, if the problem persists, your video card might be broken. You may need to replace it with a new one.
