I just got a 480 about a month ago and never had any problems until recently. Suddenly after a few minutes of playing a game or running heaven benchmark the screen starts going gray and then the card either crashes or I get a BSOD that says THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER. It all started when I updated to 17.5.2. So I rolled back the driver to 17.4.4 and I still get the problem. So I tried 17.3.3 and then 16.11.3. Keeps happening. Is my card just completely bricked now?

I've seen this is a common problem, one of the solutions was to flash the bios to stock settings and I have no idea how to do that and it seems risky. I really don't want to return the card, but i guess I will if I have to.
