Okay I bought an Acer laptop just over a year ago now and I now have a problem just after my warranty ended so that's great timing. Basically when I turn on the laptop the 3050ti will work perfectly fine for about 2 minutes then go inactive and the computer will start to use the integrated GPU as a backup. Normally I would just figure its burnt out and I need to get it replaced but here's where it confuses me, when I restart the computer or reinstall the 3050 drivers with the device manager and restart afterward it will work completely fine again for a good bit then starts going inactive again. I've done numerous tests and the GPU works just fine with games or anything I throw at it until it goes inactive again. So if someone can give me some help with this that would be great!
