    it started with videos sometimes having vertical stripes that would disappear after a few seconds or minutes.
    Later my whole PC would crash while watching youtube.

    Afterwards the whole PC was basically trashed. While booting there are three outcomes:

    1- the PC boots correctly but will almost always crash soon afterwards. The graphic glitches are always all over the screen.
    2. get redirected to the BIOS [all default settings there].
    3. Im prompted to repair Windows or to restart.

    My hardware:
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit
    Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 1600-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 23 Model 1
    Stepping 1
    Processour Count: 12
    RAM: 16317 Mb
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 560 Ti, 2048 Mb
    Harddrives: C: 222GB (193 GB Free), D: 931 GB (167 GB Free);
    Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC., PRIME B350M-A
    Antivirus: Windows Defender, Enabled and Updated

    Things I already did: Reinstall Windows -> No change, replaced my Power supply, tried a different harddrive

    Pictures of what it looks like:

    Most likely a faulty video card, the most effective way to test that is to take your video card and try it in another computer, if it has the same problem then you need to try to get warranty on it or replace it.
