Everything was working fine before I went away for a week and came home yesterday.
GeForce Experience said there was an update for GPU driver, so I updated.
Now it's crashing and freezing everything, my computer disabled the card because of a "problem".

So I did a clean install, same thing.
So I reinstalled windows, installed the drivers, same thing.

Should I revert to an old driver version?
GeForce 431.60 is the new release I am trying to install.

How do I pinpoint the issue / fix it?

MSI GE72MVR 7RG Apache Pro
GTX 1070 8GB

I tried an older driver after using DDU. It crashed.
The screen went black/blotchy soon as I loaded a game and then the BSOD windows reboot screen.

Is my GPU shot?

The laptop is less than 2 years old, but out of warranty unfortunately.
Seems like a pretty terrible life span if it is, I rarely game on it, always keep dust etc out of it, temps were always safe.

Thanks
