If updating the driver is causing problems then you should try this first before getting another card. Are you using a driver sweeper so that all of the old drivers are completly gone?

Once you have done that then up date your drivers. If you have used a driver sweeper and the problems are still there then try rolling back your driver to the one that used to work fine.

I will give you a link to a driver sweeper. I hope this helps but if doing what I suggested and still a problem. Then we can try other things to find out what is wrong.

Also when you repost please show all of your rigs spec's (ram, PSU, CPU, GPU, etc) We will need that if the problem is not found. I linked you to three different driver sweepers. Good luck
