So a friend of mine recently built a gaming computer and everything has been running fine up until yesterday. We downloaded For Honor because he wanted to try it out and instantly it started randomly going into black screen mode. This also happens with Just Cause 3 (Mostly when shooting anything that has high particle effects). We thought maybe it was just the particles overloading his 1050 TI, however, even with the particles turned all the way down it still randomly black screens.
We have so far tried re-seating the gpu, we ran tests on the CPU and ram, and we've tried changing the channels that the ram are seated in as well. We just cannot get a grip on what could be causing the problem. At the moment I'm suspecting that the PSU isn't putting enough power into the card to be able to handle such a heavy load of effects, but with it being the 1050 I've heard that it doesn't take anything more than what the motherboard uses as far as power goes, but on the flip side I've also heard you need a 500w PSU to effectively power it (he's running a Corsaire 430w bronze+). If we can get any suggestions on what could be causing this problem, we would greatly appreciate it. I'll leave his specs in a list down below.
Motherboard: MSI Bazooka 150 gaming
PSU: Corsaire 430w Bronze+
GPU: MSI GTX 1050ti 4gb DDR5
