Yes sir I did try msi afterburner. I that is causing the issue then is there any way to revert it back to its original state? thanks I did try to set it to maximum performance with little to no improvement. I also tried to lock the clock speed using Asus gpu tweak 2 which made it stable for about 10 mins
I suggest trying to set both the GPU and VRAM back to the default settings (perhaps investigate overclocking again later, but for now let's get it stable.)
Then remove both pieces of software and reboot.
I don't know that NVidia's own software has any involvement or not, but if the above fails I would:
a) download and run DDU (use the "recommended" option).http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
b) reboot then install NVidia's software again
When you install the NVidia drivers, choose to do a CLEAN install. I forget the wording. After they start to install you get options such as "EXPRESS" which keeps all your settings. Choose to do a clean install instead. Note that your settings should be gone for some or all of the NVidia stuff (i.e. individual game settings?).
