    Will do. My apologies for not noticing the link for the drivers you provided. I will def download when i get home from work. Although i do feel like i used those drivers before and had the same issues. But i will let you know what i find. Could it be that my video card is just dying? Or is it a windows 10 issue and maybe i should go back down to 7? Thanks again for the help!

    A crash could have many root causes that may look like 1 cause.
    For example with root causes
    • overheating (inadequate airflow),
    • improper seating,
    • damaged slot,
    • damaged card,
    • PSU improper seated, or not enough power.

    All of these would lead to the driver being marked as the cause where it however is not the cause.

    To check all these possibilities,
    • run a stress test, with a stress test you can find out if the card is damaged and/or overheated (see FurMark below)
    • check the PSU connection, also verify no cable is broken. What is your PSU?
    • ground yourself, open the case and reseat the GPU, before putting it back check if the connections of both the slot and card are proper and not damaged.

    Run Furmark to test your GPU. Furmark tutorial

    Note   Note
    Run Furmark for around 30 minutes

    warning   Warning
    Your GPU temperatures will rise quickly while Furmark is running. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if temperatures rise too high

    I am familiar with furmark and will run it asap. I just purchased a brand new RM750 corsair modular psu because i though the psu might be the issue but that didnt work. I ran Furmark for about an hour a few days ago and no crashes. It got to about 75C but never crashed. No damage to the card and i thoroughly cleaned out my computer of any dust. I will double check all of these options however. Thanks again for the suggestions!
