Hello everyone,

I used DDU to remove my old drivers then I have updated to the latest available for my card (441.41) rebooted and all and the pc crashes on every game displaying black squares and occasionally making buzz noise after playing for 2-3min.

What I have noticed:
  1. Fans seem not to be working properly (they usually start to spin fast 30s after opening a game but now can´t hear them)
  2. Black squares problem with computer freeze happens on every game after 2-3min
  3. Occasional buzz noise when black squares/freeze happens
  4. Pc will turn off and keyboard led will blink each 2s for like 30 seconds.

What I have tried:
  1. Deinstall Nvidia drivers and use factory ones (old 376.xx version)
  2. Downgrade to 441.12
  3. Manually boost fan speed with RW-Everything (with max fan it seems I can play for 15-20min)

What was wrong that made you uninstall your driver and install fresh rather than just update?
Can you try rolling it back to the original driver?

Possibly re-install windows fresh if not.
