    Drivers were updated yesterday to 411.70, but have only had the card in for about 4 days.

    Today i have had 4 instances where i hear the windows sound that normally plays when a device has been unplugged, and both of my screens go black. The machine is still running and i can still hear sounds in through my headset.

    2 instances this has happened in game, and 2 instances have been on the desktop. GPU has not gone above 68C.

    Had no issues with the previous 1070 installed. PSU is a corsair HX850.

    Anyone else had these issues? I had the previous driver installed for a day or two and had no issues, i might try rolling back.

    Update - rolling back didnt fix it.

    have since booted into safe mode, run DDU clean, rebooted and reinstalled drivers. In the process i swapped the PCIE power cables to the card and ensured they were seated correctly. See how we go

    Been getting THOUSANDS of events this afternoon from nvlddmkm - Event ID 13

    Please edit your post and add the new info, don't spam your own thread.

    First of all is running DDU (downloadable from the site) from safe mode and reinstall the driver.

    Thanks - have done so as above. See how we go.

    Weird, I'd swapped my 2x R9 290X to an RTX 2080 Ti using DDU before powering off my rig to swap the cards.....no issue at all actually.

    rebuilt the machine with win10 and running 411.70. Played a couple hours of pubg with mates and ran time spy a couple times, no issues so far. Won't hold me breath yet, but i'm hoping that's fixed it.

    got through most the day, then boom. Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered..

    Thinking of putting my 1070 back in at this point

    Why not try the previous driver? Might help.

    already tried it with the previous driver prior to the rebuild.

    Unfortunately i think its either the PSU or card.

    considering the 1070 was working fine before the 2080, i think its the card. The Corsair HX850 should be enough to run this PC

    How old is it?

    2080 uses significantly more power

    I would lean toward the PSU over the GPU given all the info you've provided. Typically, faulty gpu's just don't display video, or, they display with tons of artifacts in 2D and/or 3D. Busted pipes. Bad gpu's are usually very obvious. The fact your system is on and fine and does it as time goes on, again, tells me it's more likely a power issue. The 1070 requires a significantly lower amount of power than the 2080. 1 connector vs. 2 yeah? How old is your PSU?

    But bad psu doesn't usually give kernel power issue, or does it?

    I had this kernel power game crash in Quake champions, recently returned with 411.xx driver, especially @ RS5, not so much in RS4 and basically eliminated it last time with 39x.xx, was due to my gpu OC not "stable" anymore for this game only. Seen others far more demanding without a crash.

    An OCed GPU that is close to stable or even unstable GPU from factory won't usually show artifacts of any kind.

    Generally artifacts will appear after clock speeds are way beyond close stability.

    It can, yes.

    Those errors are generally unstable GPU OC; speaking of other OCs, it can also be system oc, example too high of BCLK OC due to increased PCIe clock can cause GPU to become unstable.

    Other possible causes are unstable PSUs, such as voltage deviating pass rated spec, i.e too high/low 12v rail or ripple being too high(common on cheap PSUs and PSUs that are quite old); low quality motherboards will also have trouble supplying PCIe slot wattage for high-powered GPUs which can also cause intermittent issues.

    OP, do you have another PSU you can try?

    Corsair may have good memorys but I read too much complaints about their failing PSUs that never considered buy one. My both PSU are EVGA G2 and G3 and they rock stable. For pro PSU tests head on jonnyguru com

    PSU's are getting overly complicated for what they do. My thermaltake 850w RGB modular PSU wouldn't support my 1080ti with a generic 6pin psu cord I ordered off Amazon. After searching, turns out even though the cords are identical thermaltake requires THEIR 6-pin cord.

    Well lots of modular PSU has their cords build with resistors. Regular cord can in case u connect it burn ur mobo ssds and gfx
