I've recently bought this computer maybe 2-3 weeks ago on Amazon, it's been working perfectly fine besides having a login issue but that's not the problem here. 

 

My rig consists of 

 

Geforce GTX 970

Intel ® Core ™ i17-6700k CPU @4.00GHz

16GB of RAm  

ViewSonic Monitor (Upgrading soon to a 4k monitor)

etc etc but the issue I'm having here is that whenever I'm gaming (Mainly league of legends) my screen just goes crazy with flashing red/black lights sometimes multi-color. I thought it was my graphics card but I updated that, I've reset my PC today and it went away for a few hours but then came back, not sure what I can possibly do here I would hate to call up support just to simply be placed on hold for an hour or so. 

 

Curious if anyone has ever dealt with an issue like this, would be amazing to have feedback on this so I can get back to gaming and schooling.

Connect your computer to different monitor or TV set and see issue resolves if not then its graphic card causing the issue.

If the issue was not happening with previous version of the graphic card driver install the previous version of the driver.

Check to see if graphic card is overheating with GPU-Z program.

Welcome to Bleeping ComputerMightyMouseFam.

 

I'm with FreeBooter the issue is most likely your graphics card. If changing the drivers doesn't fix the issue the card itself is probably faulty.

Just to jump in with my 2¢, I believe it's video also.

 

Testing the montior is the first step.

Also, monitor your temps with this free utility:  http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

Normally desktop temps shouldn't exceed (these are maximum temps when the system is under stress):
CPU - 60ºC
GPU - 80ºC
HDD and other components - 40ºC
Keep an eye on the temps to see if they start rising before the screen gets all messed up.

 

 

Check to be sure that the cooler is firmly affixed to the GPU, that it's free of dirt/dust/etc, and that the fan is working (without anything being caught in it.

Make sure that the system isn't pumping hot air into the cooler also.

 

 

Beyond that, here's some suggestions for troubleshooting Video Scheduler issues:    http://www.sysnative.com/forums/bsod-kernel-dump-analysis-debugging-information/35-video-tdr-timeout-0x116-0x117.html#post29532
