Screen freezes, after reboot it starts in very low resolution / strange colors

This happened yesterday night and today. I used it for a couple of hours and while browsing the webz the video the screen froze ( but the audio was still working so I guess only the video feed stopped working properly ). After I restarted it via button it started with the lowest resolution than can be set and with distorted colors, a combination of grey, white and black. 

After that I rebooted it again this this normally and it worked without any problem afterwards. 

 

It did the same thing again today while I was watching a youtube video ( not full screen ).It froze, I restarted it via restart button now and it sent me into windows diagnostic, it said it could not repair the windows, I said to continue to windows normally and now it works. 

 

I have windows 10, I just updated graphics card driver ( gtx 1060 )

I just updated the driver after I left so I don't know if it still acts up now. 

 

Should I run a benchmark and see ?

Next time the issue occurs, go to device manager and see if the graphics device is still the GTX 1060

If it is, check for the error or stop code in the device properties

If it is not (Like Generic VGA Adapter or something like that) then it could be a driver fault (somehow, though the visual glitching doesn't seem right)

Check device manager, see if there is an error code for the GPU
