Recently I am notice a weird problem on my GTX 1060 graphic card. Sometime it runs roughly 1 hour and then display becomes black sometimes in 30 minutes or sometimes while booting. I have tried several methods, like changing the thermal paste and changing the thermal pads also trying to clean it with isopropyl alcohol. My GPU driver is also updated and BIOS also updated and I have tried to reset my BIOS also.

Hi, I am running ARCH Linux with the kernel Linux archlinux 5.13.6-arch1-1. I have a Geforce GTX 1060 6GB, running the Nvidia driver nvidia-470.57.02-6. The driver seems to work fine at first, with a correct image, displayed. Then suddenly I experience random black screen for a few seconds, the image comes back for a undetermined period of time, then it goes back to a black screen again for a few seconds, and this pattern is repeated indefinitely with different elapsed period of time. This makes the computer basically unusable. I do not experience this at all with the nouveau driver. I also run Windows 10 on dual boot on another SSD disk, and everything is fine. It looks like there is a bug somewhere in the linux version of your driver that causes it to crash and restart randomly. Tell Tims
