Yes, I tried clean install twice, still the issue persists. :(

@snaphat (Myles Landwehr) I tried that too: The problem is still there. :(

It was, but it was the same issue I think.

Updating this thread in case it helps someone:

 

After many driver crashes I think I have pinned down the culprit: f.lux

I tried disabling it last night and have not encountered a crash just yet. I'll update this thread in perhaps a week's time to see if this solution worked.

 

Something else I tried was modifying both these registry values to 60, which I'll try reverting back in a few days to pinpoint the issue down to f.lux:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDriver

TdrDelay = 60

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers\DCI

Timeout = 60

 

Related: this guy came to the same conclusion regarding f.lux.

You're welcome (Y) and also to confirm, I have never encountered another display driver crash since my last message so I consider this issue solved. I have reverted the above registry keys back to their original values.
