In the last few months my PC has started freezing. Only seems to happen when I am played Dead by Daylight and always within the first 30 minutes. It happens, everything freezes (sometimes I can still hear audio but video is completely frozen), I have to pull out the plug, restart and I can play for hours with no problem. For my first year with the PC it never happened.

I'm fed up with it happening and started looking into it. I checked Event Viewer and noticed this:
"Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

This was just before a recent crash. I found a solution here where it was linked to a factory overclocked GPU. I have a MSI GTX 1660 ARMOR OC (Base 1530/Boost 1845) whereas the Nvidia references are Base 1530/Boost 1785. Maybe not that much of a difference.


Not even sure I'm on the right track.
