Windows "restart" my GPU in-game

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15-bc501nv
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

To begin with, I am not a hardcore gamer and I usually play on PS4, but I like to play ETS2 and LoL on my laptop. Just these 2 games and this laptop with its GTX1650 can't do both.


I own this laptop for a bit over a year now and from the first second I found it buffling that Euro Truck Simulator 2 froze and crashed every time I tried to run it. My previous laptop (4 years old) has a Nvidia 960m and runs it easy. Still, I had League, so it was OK, kinda.


With League there was little problem, just a 2-3sec screen freeze every other game (still a pain, but oh well) but since the last Windows update and for the last couple GPU updates, the game crashes to client with a "Windows has restarted your gpu driver due to a problem driver upgrade or physical removal" error message.

I checked the temperature of the GPU, it never goes over 65-66 Celsius. it has become frustrating cause these 2 games are butter for any decent laptop and this one is close to a "budget gaming" laptop and right now performs worse than one you can get with 500 euros
