For over a year now I’ve been getting Xid 79 crashes, previously only when playing games but now at the desktop as well. When contacted about it, Nvidia blamed my power supply however even after a new power supply(EVGA 550W modular gold), which I had to spend money to ensure and ship, the issue persists:

This was already after an RMA of my EVGA GTX 1080 GPU. For the love of god Nvidia, fix your broken driver. There are already multiple bug reports of dozens of people having crashes and hangs for months and there hasn’t been a fixed.
I’m running a first-gen Ryzen 1800x/X370 Taichi, in case anyone’s wondering. This information was already submitted to Nvidia.
