If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site. If NVIDIA, do a clean install of the latest Studio Driver (NOT the Game Driver)

Please tell us which version of premiere you're using and your source properties and sequence settings. Make sure you have at least 20% free space on your startup drive and at least 10% on all media drives. And it's possible your media drive is failing. Might test the read and write speed of the drive.
