  1. Windows restarted my GPU error, when switching window with alt tab


    When I am playing a game called league of legends on my main external monitor and alt tab to my browser I am pretty sure this happens with other programs as well, but I'm not certain on my laptops built-in monitor sometimes the game crashes and displays an error message stating: "Windows has restarted your GPU". Also when this happens ocasionally both my monitors go black for a couple seconds or the browser stops working. This has started happening not long ago, and I can't think of any change I made to my setup or software that could have caused it.


    Is it possible that windows is actually restarting my GPU. If yes what is the reason? Could it be that the GPU can't handle the load? I used to use two external monitors for a while and everything worked perfectly so I assume this isn't the case.


    I'm using Windows 10 on an ASUS Zenbook 15 UX533, which has Intel® UHD Graphics 620 and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Max Q GPUs.

    ALT + TAB Not switching on release


    Hi,

    I've been having a bit of trouble with Windows the last few days, which has to to lead me to reinstall it over my current windows. Just mentioning it in case it might be relevant.

    But my problem is that I'm used to having to press ALT+TAB and it would display the open programs, and when I release the combo, it would switch me to the program. But now I've noticed that when I press ALT+TAB, and release the combo, the little UI thingy still stays open and I either need to click the choice or press enter or something. And this is really annoying since I switch programs on a regular basis and this extra step feels unnecessary.
