    Also, not sure if it helps, but the GPU doesn't seem to be slowing down before it crashes. It's like, completely random. I even went one week straight without crashing back when I was using 8.1.
    So am i correct that it only started crashing when you went from W8.1 to W10?
    IF this is the case, i would think it to be a software issue and not an hardware issue,
    although the popping sound might suggest otherwise.

    Nah, it's been crashing for two months now, actually. I only upgraded to W10 the other day, to see if it would solve the issue. I had no crashes during the day I installed W10, then the crashes came back the next day. Yeah, pretty random.

    I've tried going back and forth through version 362.00 and 353.24 (the one from Lenovo). They both cause the display driver to stop responding, although version 362.00 seem to cause BSODs while 353.24 does not. Also, version 362.00 caused a BSOD loop when I tried going to startup settings. The PC even rebooted once while the BSOD was at 0% once. I was able to get into Safe Mode via rebooting through DDU. Currently using 353.24. Going to try changing TDR timer.

    Use the driver version from Lenovo instead of using drivers from Nvidia, this isn't a suggestion FYI.

    Hmm, I've disabled the discrete GPU for now. Turns out even the Intel HD can stop responding and recover. What the hell. I've also gotten BSODs from the Lenovo driver. Will upload another zip once I get more dump files.
