PC visuals crash/freeze but audio and game keeps going..

So for the past few days, I've been having a huge issue with my pc. For some odd reason, after a few minutes of gaming (I played games like Fortnite and GTA V), my computer decides to freeze, but I noticed that the auido kept going (bc I was playing music) and that my game also kept going since I heard the game audio as well.

I looked it up and have found absolutely no solutions. I saw something about Event Viewer, checked it out and thought it was a problem with an Event called 10016 but it isn't since I just recently measured the times of my crashes and they dont match with that event error.

I also tried reinstalling drivers, getting "new" drivers", uninstalled my drivers and installed the newest one.

Also, my pc visuals don't freeze when only watching videos, or watching Netflix. Only when I have a game opened and running.

I am absolutely pissed and annoyed at the fact that I just want to game, and my pc just crashes and I end up having to hard boot it.

Any suggestions?
