    Gtx 1060 artifacts

    Hello

    I'm a newbee to pc gaming and bought a 2nd hand pc a few months ago with a 4th gen i5 k processor oc to 4.3ghz, a gtx 1060 6gb and 12gb ddr3 ram.
    When i first got the pc i was gaming on ultra at 1080p playing far cry 5. In the past week or so I can't seem to game at 1080p resolution with any quality without seeing artifacts then crashing to desktop. I can still play at 720p without problems on ultra.
    What I have tried is a fresh install of Windows 10, installing latest nvidia drivers also have tried a few older drivers, have removed the oc.
    I am starting to think I could try downgrading to windows 7 as im thinking it's a driver issue with windows 10.

    Any suggestions?

    James

  3. Nvidia GTX 1060 not being detected on my Lenovo Legion y7000-p laptop

    Nvidia GTX 1060 not being detected on my Lenovo Legion y7000-p laptop. It appears in device manager but not in any external programs or games. This also prevents my computer from recognizing when monitors are plugged in. Nvidia control panel also doesn't
    open and geforce experience/ the nvidia website won't let me install the latest drivers.
