Unique issue with updated Graphics Driver

7 minutes ago, mobeel said:

So whenever I update my graphics driver for my gtx 780 sc, my cpu will be at 100% load and instantly freeze on desktop after boot.

I know it's specifically a driver issue because when I install my gpu, the default driver (390.65) everything works fine. But the second I manually download /install the driver from nvidias website OR when windows automatically updates the driver, the pc will crash.

I'm not 100% sure if the cpu is at 100% load because when you open your task manager it will for a split second say 100% but the computer will crash and the last thing I saw was the cpu at 100%.

I've recently wanted to update my gpu but I'm running into this problem. Im thinking this might be a compatibility issue, can't think of anything else. Also can't find the same issue on Google.

I posted the same question on r/techsupport but not many replies. Take a look at what one person wrote...

Specs are :
i5-7600k
Evga Gtx 780 sc
8gb ddr4 2400mhz ram
500gb WD hdd

Perhaps you need a clean install.  Boot into safe mode and run DDU " Display Driver Uninstaller then boot back up to winblows and install the latest WHQL drivers and let us know what happens.
