So a few months before i had the same issue.. I updated my drivers and started playing games. After a while the game crashed and i heard my GPU drivers disconnecting (that windows sound) and the Driver icon on the taskbar was gone. I started my drivers again and checked the version of drivers and saw that they rollbacked from 17.11.x to 17.1.1.

I was struggling with this issues for a few days but then i just reinstalled windows 10 and it solved the issues.


Now I've had my fresh Windows 10, playing some Battlefield 1 and ofc. it kicked me out because I didn't update my drivers. So I downloaded them and made a clean install of the new drivers.

To get the story short, the same thing happened as before. My drivers rollbacked to 17.1.1. and whatever I do it will always crash and rollback to 17.1.1.


Note: I allready used DDU, safe mode starts.. etc.
