I am having issues with what I believe to be my graphics card though I am (as will perhaps be obvious) not the most technological of people.
My problems started about a week ago when I was playing Tomb Raider on high settings and I would see the game crash and I would get display driver errors. I uninstalled and reinstalled my drivers to no effect, so I reduced the settings again and again until I was at low (please bear in mind the whole computer is only a few months old though it is not a top gaming PC by any stretch of the imagination).
This seemed to make Tomb Raider more playable though my computer would make a lot of noise, I completed Tomb Raider so I thought this might be the end of it. It wasn't alas and things have got worse with I now getting a white screen (seems to happen randomly not linked to any game or program) and even once a series of lines displayed on my monitor that I had to restart to get rid of.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

- it is hard to reproduce the issue specifically but seems more likely when I am watching twitch/youtube or playing games (any) though it is happening more frequently and is harder to predict, it used to be playing a certain game triggered it.
- It used to be the graphics card driver crashed, now the screen goes completly white and unresponsive.

Embrassingly I am not sure how I find this out without opening up my case again.
