    Hi everyone,

    I recently built a new computer.

    I bought the below parts and assembled them:
    cpu: intel i7 9700k
    graphics card: geforce rtx 2080 OC 8GB
    motherboard: gigabyte aorus z380 master
    RAM: 2x 8GB 3200
    SDD: 1TB M.2

    I'm running this computer on Windows 10.

    For over a week everything was fine but then sudenly the computer froze and when I restarted it showed an issue with the graphics card driver.

    I tried reinstalling it and formatting the PC but still got the issue.

    I'm not sure if it's a hardware issue or a driver issue.

    Do you guys have any ideas on how I can troubleshoot this?

    Thanks

    Did you install the graphics card driver from the CD ? If you did, go to Control Panel > Device Manager > Display Adapter, right click on the driver and choose Update.

    If you didn't install a graphics driver yet, you can do a Windows Update and it should find and install the latest driver for you/
