Nvidia drivers causing freezing and audio buzzing? (sometimes even crashing)
Would anyone know a fix to a problem im having, I uninstalled the latest nvidia drivers as to put it shortly, it broke my 970. Anyways, Even after using Display Driver Uninstaller every time, whenever ive installed different version of drivers, after installation my audio buzzes and pc pc freezes for a second, on some occasions my pc even just simply went to a black screen and restarted. And it isnt just me experiencing this, my friend with a 980ti and another friends dad with two 780ti's in SLI are experiencing this too. (well, they're experiencing the random restarting, the audio issues are exclusive to me) **Edit Ive managed to fix it myself, i found that DDU removes the driver, but not the driver files, so i just simply deleted the Nvidia folder on my hard drive, did DDU one more time just in case, then once my pc rebooted i installed driver 385.69 (again, the newest drivers are basically just breaking gpu's) and now my 970 is working flawlessly.

388 drivers are quite unstable for many users of Maxwell v2 gpu's.

I'm having a similar issue my pc buzzes/freezes for a second with nvidia drivers but it seems to only happen when I load a new amazon prime or netflix video. Was yours like that or just random?
