    I have heard and experienced it a couple of times myself. Once it was just a GPU driver and the second time the GPU was dead. I had to RMA it and get a new one.
    For starters, let's try with new driver version and booting up in safe mode to see if the problem is present there.

    Don't worry about that. Main aim is to make sure the problem is solved.
