I was testing my overclocks for my 1050, I followed the safe procedures by going little by little and then I hit the limit. My PC froze and then I restarted the PC, but after that my gaming experience is just ruined from then on.


Games like Genshin Impact, CS:GO, osu! was freezing occasionally but it wasn't like my FPS was dropping. But weirdly enough, Roblox doesn't have those issues. When the freezing happens, sometimes my audio mutes for a bit then comes back after it unfreezes. I've tried reinstalling Windows, cleaning my GPU drivers with DDU and underclocking my 1050 but nothing has worked. I've not touched anything in the BIOS too.

The is NO safe overclock. All overclocking entails some degree of risk. I have a rule "Do not overclock with parts you cannot afford to replace"

It sounds like you have already done the necessary troubleshooting however I do not see where you physically removed the card, cleaned the contacts and reinstalled. If you have not done this task, I would do so. Note there is a latch that must be depressed to remove the card.

Can you provide a description and capacity of these storage drives?
Which ones are internal and external?

Alright I'll remove the card and report back on the results.

So far, it has not frozen as much but it is still there. Also, the audio keeps cutting off still.

Try the card in another system. If it still has problems, you know the card is failing.

Anything is fixable however it becomes a question of cost effectiveness. A 5yr old video card is not really worth putting much money into repairing.
