Default Hardware not working after formatting

All drivers to my knowledge have been updated. Running WIN10 64x, with a Ryzen 7 2700x and a MSI GeForce RTX 2070. Games are not running properly and crashes are repeated. Any reccomendations?

Default Re: Hardware not working after formatting

What do you mean by "not running properly" ? What kind of crashes are you getting? Is it just during games, or during other activities as well?

Check your Device Manager to make sure no other drivers are missing.

Also, check your CPU/GPU temps, with something like HWMonitor. Both idle and load (trying to play a game).
