    Many games crashes after updating to 17.4.3 (Lots of info)


      Specs and stuff:
      GPU: 7970 Ghz edition 3gb
      OS: Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
      Driver Version 17.4.3
      Display devices: Dell 1920x1200 connected with DVI
      CPU: I5 3570k
      Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX

      RAM: 16 GB DDR3


      My problem:
      It first happened when I updated to version 17.4.3.

      I dont know how to replicate it, but first I want to say, I did re install, worked the same day, but the next day the problem came back.

      All games are latest version Steam have auto updated them to.

      The problem is that, games crash at startup but some come with error message and some dont:


      7 days to die:

      I get this error:


      (Couldnt switch to requested monitor resolution)


      Natural Selection 2:


      (Fatal Error: Couldnt initalize the render device)




      (A fatal error has occurred and the application cannot continue.

      VideoDX9: The application requres hardware that supports shader model 2.0

      VideoDevice: Failed to find a valid display mode)


      Democracy 3:

      Mini Metro:
