I have been recently been having issues with my laptop. I keep getting an error message saying the video card crashes. Online resources on a solution has not been much help as I could not find a proper solution or a reason. The video drivers are up to date. refer to the image below .
If I am running any 3D dependant software, the crash is followed by the BSOD
and the genreal error messages I get are
"DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION" (most common)
most recetly this error message
I was hoping it was only a software issue and recently I installed the lenovo solution centre
Performing a hardware diagnosis recieved an error when it was trying to test the dedicated video card
as seen in the image below
What does this mean? What is the problem?
This is very annoying as I am dependant on the video card as I use it for simulation...
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Your GPU may be faulty.
Lenovo may need to replace your motherboard. Contact warranty support and send your laptop for repairs.
