In one of my system is running a GTS 450.

For every task I throw at it, the task would run for about a minute or two, but then, would completely stop using the GPU and show an infinitely long estimated remaining time whilst GPU usage drops to 0%

Any ideas on a fix?
I will try to provide as much information as needed.

An easy thing would be to roll the driver back to the same one the 1070 uses to eliminate the driver being the problem. 2nd are you running cpu units on that pc too? If so stop them and see if it picks back up again, 4gb of ram and 5 Boinc tasks could be maxing things out, as well as watching things happen on the screen.

Jesus that was dumb.
You're right, it's a driver issue: Geforce Experience decided to auto-update the driver on the new install.

Yup between it and Windows sometimes it's hard to keep up.
