I’ve had the game crash twice tonight, stating a crash in the graphics driver. I’ve never had this issue before tonight.
With any PC-related tech issue, please include a DxDiag so members of the community can help you troubleshoot.

If your DxDiag does not fit in one message DO NOT shorten it. Instead, post it on Pastebin.com and provide the hash code (the numbers/letters after the .com) in your reply.
If you don’t want community help (I don’t work at Blizzard) and require staff assistance specifically, you may need to open a ticket.
Too long, so the pastebin is…
There are not error messages related to the Overwatch client in your report. Because of this, I would recommend checking out this topic from the pinned threads:
If that doesn’t help, I would recommend removing your GPU drivers with Display Driver Uninstaller, and then reinstalling them.
Finally, if nothing else works, check for overheating.
Well it’s not overheating, I can pretty much guarantee that. It says it is a graphics driver issue. When it crashed, it gave me this code in the report screen…
Not sure what that means. I updated the bios on this system like 2 weeks ago, the chipset drivers are up to date. Keep in mind, this entire system is less than 3 months old. I will try reinstalling the GPU drivers. I use GeForce Experience to update my drivers, so I don’t know why there would be an issue there.
Because the GeForce experience doesn’t offer a clear installation, even though it says it does. It often leaves behind remnant files that can upset the next installation/update.
I can’t read error codes, only the staff can. What I can tell you is that GPU driver crashing is usually a third-party app interfering with the game displaying, which causes Windows to shut down your GPU. The game itself cannot shut down your GPU.
