Faulty graphics card?

Having issues with my new pc for months. Was fine for the first month then I got a couple blue windows 10 screens. Has been freezing then restarting, sometimes with a buzzing sound. Sometimes I have to manually restart. Sometimes with a USB connection sound. My ram is incompatible as it's not on the list so I am looking at new ram. Sometimes i get 1 beep around startup. Also At the moment i'm leaning towards maybe a GPU problem as now it is displaying no signal on my mobo sometimes. So I'm not sure if ram or gpu? Just wanna know before I buy a new gpu. Cause if it's none of those I've literally nearly replaced all components of my pc. The next will be the Mobo.

Never done overclocking of anything. Bios is up to date as I thought it might fix my issue (ver 3.30). PSU is brand new replaced 450w as I thought it was the issue. I have ordered new ram on the list of the mobo that's specially amd. Did the nvidia driver thing, no help. Done memtest no errors.

Don't think it's heat as i did an intel burn test and it never crashed.
Any opinions are appreciated.

- CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
- PSU: Corsair CX 750M
- GPU: Galax GeForce 1050 Ti OC 4GB
- MOBO: Asrock AB350M Pro4 AM4
- MEM: http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/vengeance-lpx-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-dram-2666mhz-c16-memory-kit-red-cmk16gx4m2a2666c16r

Thank you

  1. If I'm reading the manual right, you need to have your memory sticks in A2 and B2. A2 is the second memory slot to the right of the CPU, B2 is the memory slot farthest to the right of the CPU. I like to go into the motherboard bios and double check that memory timings and voltage have been correctly set. If it's done 'auto', it might not be set right. Your timings should be 16-18-18-35 with a voltage of 1.2V.

    Try testing the computer, with memtest and just by using it for awhile, with one memory stick at a time. Finally, have you tried to repair Windows or even do a clean reinstall? You mention replacing many components, but that won't help if this is a software issue. At least scan for malware/virus infections first.

  2. Okay so I put those in the ram slots, and the timings were what you said. I've done a clean install many times of windows 10. I did one recently and did the virus scan with now problems. Now whenever I turn on my pc within 5 minutes the screen goes black and crashes or says no signal. It says something about the nvidia display in the notifications. I've also looked at power settings but nothing has fixed it. I don't even have time to look at installing new drivers or rolling them back because it turns off and restarts too quickly.

    What kind of software issue could it be?
