Hello, I've been having issues for the past week or so where my Graphics card will crash in one way or another, some crashes result in a bluescreen with the error "video_dxgkrnl_fatal_error", other times it will just quit displaying on the monitors I have connected, but the display I have connected to my mobo works perfectly fine... All the while my GPU will turn on its fans to mach 10. The first problem I thought was it's overheating, however that's not the issue, I've been watching the temps, and they are at a consistent ~30c Idling and ~50c In-game, so that's not the issue, I have checked multiple times if it's connected to the slot properly, That's fine too. I remember it happening only after I updated to a new driver from NVIDIA, and then it started crashing, I've updated drivers since, and the issue persists. Any help could be appreciated, and If you have any questions I can try and go into more detail.

Here are my Specs :

CPU : i7 4790k (Never Overclocked)
GPU : Gigabyte GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC 6G (Never OC'd)
RAM : G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (I've had these set at 1333 MHz)
Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK
CPU Cooler : Corsair H80i v2
Case : NZXT H500i Mid ATX Case
Storage : WD Blue 1TB HDD/Kingston 120GB SSD
PSU : EVGA 550 B3

Hope this helps.
