A couple days ago the videocard starts acting like its damaged, black boxes, flickering screen and pieces of text appear which most of the time leads to a crash or a bsod. The bsod shows watchdog violation.
Im not sure if the problem is caused by the videocard but i suppose so, since the display is malfunctioning.
Also my pc is not infected with a virus, and updating the drivers did nothing.
If you need my pc specs for solving the problem let me know.

I will assume that by the term "videocard" you mean and actual, free-standing card in one of the PCIe slots. Do you have integrated video on your motherboard also? If so, remove the card and run the computer using the integrated video. The computer should recognize and switch to integrated video automatically. Do you still have the same problems?
