    Anyone having issues with Win 10 drivers random crashes, seems to affecting new an old GPU's.

    Screen locks up the mouse still moves then just crashes out, all I see is a "Kernel" issue. Did a bit of a Google found lots of threads out there, seems Nvida have n't really fixed anything yet.

    My GPU an old 9800GT but it's listed as supported ?

    My 980ti does the same thing now and then.

    Are you overclocking the card at all?

    I had this constantly with my old PC. Literally almost drove me nuts. Never found a solution for it either.

    My GTX 760 has worked (surprisingly) well with win 8.1 and I'm getting pretty annoyed by the "get your free upgrade to windows 10!!" -spambox appearing every time I fire up my rig. I'm not going to, however, until nvidia fixes their seemingly abundant kernel issues, also tired of endless "easy to upgrade" -operating system installations, which are never a) easy b) upgrades c) stable from the get go.
    So my plan is to win the lottery and buy a full simulator and use my other PCs as fishing accessories. :D I know this does not help you in any way, but I had to rant. Sorry, been at work all night doing a 12-hour shift. :sleep:

    yeah though Im pretty sure that was hardware fail.

    If you don't intend to do it you can remove the windows update that added that notification. More info here -> http://microsoft-news.com/how-to-remove-windows-10-upgrade-notification-on-windows-7-and-windows-8/
