Question Gigabyte GTX 1660 Super OC

Jan 12, 2022
Hey Brains Trust,

Been having a problem recently regarding a full system reboot when trying to load up the likes of, MSI Afterburner, Open Hardware Monitor and now Gigabyte's Aorus Engine software. All this only started about 6 weeks ago (System was built about 12 months ago).

So far i have used the DDU Software in safemode completely removing Nvidia drivers and reinstalled them, windows updates and scanned for corrupted system files, and fixed them.

I must also add that the desktop seems to crash in a way that the start bar and desktop have no icons, the desktop has no background image, but mouse clicking where the icons are work and can open the programs.

This is the most insane peice of witchcraft I have seen in this machine and about to call for a exorcism, I am at a loss of what to do next, any help will be greatly appreciated .
