I've been stuck on the version 16.4.2 display driver for months. I'm getting lots of problems including "thread stuck in device driver" errors followed by my computer rebooting itself, my computer refusing to wake after being put to sleep, and crashes in games and while playing videos. Whenever I try to update the drivers, the log just says "failed" for the display driver. there is no detailed error message in the log.
