ism.dll causing blackscreens/driver crash on CoD/Cyberpunk

Two crashes happen, either the Nvidia Driver crashes outright, or DWM crashes causing a blackscreen & recovery So far this has ONLY occured while playing CoD MW or Cyberpunk 2077

Reliability manager finally provided me with more information instead of just "dwm crashed"

It says ism.dll fault

 

The only threads I have found on the internet say do a fresh windows Install.

But I have one issue with that, this windows install practically is fresh, I haven't had this PC for 2 months and I fresh installed windows when I got it, and I haven't done any crazy modifications.

If I really need to reinstall windows it means that microsofts own installer is flawed and broke windows on Install the first time.

 

-I also recently Installed a brand new Corsair RMX 850w Power Supply replacing a EVGA G5 850w after I blamed that psu for this issue.

Just found another thread that points at new Xbox Series X controllers being at fault.

-And every time it has crashed I was in fact using a series x controller to play. Hmm

 

Edit: Xbox Accessories app had a update for the controller.. I swear if this fixes the issue, y i k e s microsoft.

 

PSA Edit 6/27/2021: This was the cause, zero CTD's since updating controller firmware.
