I currently have an ASUS VG249 (1080p) and an LG 27GL850 (1440p) monitor for my setup. Everything has been working fine such as watching videos or playing games. However after this recent NVIDIA update (466.77) released this month, my monitors have been acting up. Both screens will turn black for a couple of seconds and continue flickering whenever I try to move my cursor across the screen. It'll do that until I have to restart my PC, or for just several seconds before acting normally again. Does anyone have this issue? I know it's not my displayport cables because they have been working fine before the driver update. Any steps to troubleshoot? Thanks.

UPDATE:
I have spent some time browsing on NVIDIA forums, and a whole bunch of other people are having problems with the new released driver (466.77) such as dropped frames and increased temps on their GPUs. I will just revert back to the last NVIDIA driver before this one.
