display driver stopped responding and has recovered while doing next to nothing

I keep getting this issue. Not only have I changed from different versions of the Nvidia drivers, but I'm changed graphics cards and it is still happening. I went from a GTX 780 to a GTX1080 just a few days ago, and it has been happening on both card even when I'm just browsing the internet.

Edit: I've also chosen to do a clean install everytime.
