Consistent driver crash and black screen on insider geforce driver 455.41

This crash is happening several times an hour, screens go black for about 5 seconds and eventually come back, usually but not always with Windows Explorer staying black and windows doing the ol’ solitaire win animation when you drag them around. Requires manual restart of Explorer from task manager or reboot to fully recover.

The crash generally occurs regularly while watching a Youtube video and scrolling down to the comments while its playing (in Chrome). Other apps I also have running are Discord, and Slack.

I have the same issue,

Software:
Windows Version: Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 20150.rs_prerelease.200612-1734
Nvidia Driver: 451.67 installed via Geforce Experience

I never get it while gaming, getting it while browsing Discord or watching YouTube. I’ve got the exact same error. My way of fixing it is plugging the monitor off the GPU and back in.

Hi, I have the same Issue. It happen sometimes.

Windows Version: Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 20175.rs_prerelease.200717-1349
Nvidia Driver: 455.41.

My event viewer report the following:

No se encuentra la descripción del id. de evento 14 en el origen nvlddmkm. El componente que provoca este evento no está instalado en el equipo local, o bien la instalación está dañada. Puede instalar o reparar el componente en el equipo local.

Si el evento se originó en otro equipo, la información que se va a mostrar tenía que haberse guardado con el evento.

Se incluyó la siguiente información con el evento:
\Device\Video3
CMDre 00000003 00000200 00000000 00000005 00000018

El sistema no puede encontrar el texto del mensaje para el mensaje número 0x%1 en el archivo de mensajes para %2

Same issue here when browsing pages with video content.
Reddit/Youtube/embedded video in forums.

When the video reaches the border while scrolling, the screen goes black and the driver hangs, coming back 2 seconds later.
Sometimes my taskbar will not reappear too.
