I have been experiencing a weird problem for the last week and I can't find any other poster who has the same thing.
My drivers crash, normal black screen, then recover and then immediately recrash and then recover, meaning there are 2 notifications for the crash after it all ends.
Thing is I'm quite ok with the occasional crash, but this is not occasional any more. And they DON'T crash when I'm starting up some game, they crash every time I boot my pc. Every single time for the last 10 days or so. After the crash, anything resembling graphics in my pc gets corrupted and unusable, can't use share screen on skype, can't watch youtube videos because they stutter, and worst of all there is no sound.
I have a GIGABYTE GTX 770 OC Windforcex3 and the drivers I have installed are the latest. Cleaning up previous drivers didn't help, installing them again also didn't. Checked my services to see if something was disabled there but nothing.
What I am seeking here is either a way to fix this problem altogether or a way for me to bring my PC back to normal without having to restart every time this happens. Boot time after the crash is significantly longer. I have to restart because as I said before it is almost unusable. After the restart, nothing goes wrong. It only happens on the first boot after the night or a long enough period of time.
Drivers are fully updated of course.
Thanks in advance.
PS. I am not in a position where I can meddle with the hardware and interchange GPUs as I have no spare parts.
