Before this problem i have been able to play Minecraft without a hitch, but starting from yesterday i started to encounter this problem. Like the title says I press "play" it takes me to the Mojang loading page, the red bar loads up to about 95% and then the game freezes and crashes before it gets to the menu.
I have done the following to try and resolve the problem:
Re-install Java to the latest version(Version 8 Update 211)
Re-install Minecraft(on the C and D drive)
Used the launcher installer to "repair" the launcher
Updated the Nvidia drivers
and a few others which I've done but might not remember it
I'm happy to provide any other information e.g. screenshots, screen recordings, output logs(an exit code was 805306369)
P.S i changed out my 1050ti to a 1070 and i couldn't find the right cable-end shape for the Graphics card so I used the one most similar to the one on the card and it works, my games run fine but i'm just throwing it out there
