Screen freezing / stuttering every few seconds

For some time now, I have been having screen lags where the screen would essentially stutter for a few seconds and this would be really annoying. This happens all the time, not just when I'm playing games.  Somehow, I managed to fix it by downloading the 20.4.2 driver and every morning, I would plug out my HDMI cable and plug it back in. That seemed to work. But then my computer occasionally blue-screened with the video error issue and I decided to update my drivers. Once I updated them to 20.7.1, the issue reoccured, and I have no idea what is causing the issue. Any help would really be appreciated.


I have tried many possible solutions such as disabling windows game bar, turning on HDMI support, lowering graphics but I am currently trying to revert my driver back to 20.4.2 and hopefully that will work but I'm not sure. I have also switched from HDMI to displayport but that didn't make a difference.
