Continued Artifacting, Freezing and crashing on Omen Desktop

Product Name: 870-097a
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I hate to have to write this out again. Last time I posted here the fix I got was merely temporary, and the crashes that returned have became worse. Here's a quick story.

 

So far from what I can tell this is to do with my GPU's driver, other r380 users have reported constant green screen crashes and other forms of crashing as well, AMD released a temporary fix; this fixed nada for me.

 

I've had green screen crashes that end audio 2-4 seconds after firing, and usually come after a series of horizontal green artifacts. These sometimes follow up with a windows error message displaying:

 

"THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER" (or something like that)

 

And sometimes the green screen crash just doesn't do anything and requires a hard reboot to get rid of. Sometimes it crashes with a distorted image of my previous screen, which I have pictures of.

 

I've also had the very sudden "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT_ERROR" crash, which well, is sudden and pretty much instantly restarts my computer after compiling error reports.

 

I've also had the ALSO very sudden  "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED" which follows just as above.

 

Sometimes the computer just freezes full stop with no error report during, it requires a hard reboot to start up again.

 

I usually have around 1-8 crashes per day.

 

What I've done to try and remedy this:

 

Update BIOS

Update GPU Drivers

Update HP Reccomended drivers

Rolled back GPU Drivers

Tried to cool computer by opening window (Worth a shot right?)

Clean uninstall drivers and reinstall

Changed monitor

Changed power settings

Scan for viruses (Had none, wowzers)

Uninstalling AVG (Friend reccomended it so... Worth a shot)

HP Diagnosal

 

I'd like to hear anything else I could do, or if I should just use my warranty; if so can someone provide me with the contact details for claiming said warranty? 

 

This PC is just a bundle of joy Smiley Tongue
