I have a MSI 980 Ti Golden Edition running on Windows 10.
The card will not work with drivers newer than 385.69. The drivers will seemingly install fine, but will not be usable, with nvidia experience showing no driver and nvidia control panel non-existent. Driver 385.69 (and prior versions) works as intended with no issues.

At this point I have tried:
1. DDU clears and installs (same issue)
2. Reformatting completely (same issue)

Let me know if there is any information i can provide that will help in coming up with some ideas for solving the issue.
