Question GTX 980 Driver Problem (glitches)

May 28, 2019
Specs :
motherboard : aorus z370 gaming 3
Gpu : msi gtx 980 dragon army
Cpu : I5 8600k overclocked to 4ghz
ram : 16 gb of ddr4 ram at 2600~ mhz
powersupply : fsp 550w

im running the lastest driver version (430.86) + latest windows 10 version


So yesterday i have been playing for something like 2 or 3 hours and my pc started to reboot by itslef 2 or 3 times, pretty weird.
When it booted to windows i searched for a virus or someting but i did'nt find one. (on top of that i reinstalled windows last month)
So i kept playing but this time my game crashed (battlefield 4) and some weird glitchs started to appear on my windows desktop and basically on all games and all apps even on windows. (look at screenshots)
I tryed reinstalling my drivers once again with DDU (display driver unninstaller) i even tryed removing geforce experience and nbidia physx but nothing changed.
When i unninstall the nvidia drivers gmitches disappear but i can't let it without drivers so i'm stuck right now, i don't undersatand what the problem is and i can't find a solution on the internet.
everything were working nice before the driver and the weirdest is that even by installing old drivers it still does glitches.

To narrow down the issue, can you first booting your PC by using the Motherboard's Onboard Graphics ?? Just check whether you are still getting these glitches/artifacts, at least on your Windows OS DESKTOP Screen.
When i uninstall completely my graphic card driver the glitches/artifacts disappear, So i'm guessing the problem is due to the driver.
I don't really know how to boot from my onboard graphics tbh ;)
thanks for helping me
