UPDATE:

An advisory note on Reddit indicates that the 364.47 drivers are causing instability in certain configurations. A thread for the issue on the official GeForce forums can be found here, and we'd expect to see a hotfix posted in the very near future. If you're experiencing the problem it's advised that you uninstall in Safe Mode with DDU and revert to the GeForce 362.00 drivers.
