          I am not working with 4K however I am getting the same thing. Chatted with nVidia and they gave me this info below. so far I have no issues.  I am using a Quadro 4000 and editing 1080p with Premiere:


          Try "Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) " to completely uninstall NVIDIA / AMD graphics card drivers and packages from your system, without leaving leftovers behind (including registry keys,

          folders and files, driver store) :






          After the download is completed, it would prompt you to extract the file. Once the display driver uninstaller is extracted under download folder you would see Display driver uninstaller .exe file. Double click on it to proceed with the installation. After the Display driver is installed, it would prompt for system restore point creation and booting the computer in safemode.

          Once done, - Select NVIDIA on top and Put a check mark on all the NVIDIA components near the NVIDIA logo.

          - Now click on Clean and Restart (Highly Recommended)

          - Once the computer restarts and goes to the Windows, please follow the steps below



          Shut down the computer remove the graphics card and reseat is after 60 seconds turn on the computer download and install the below drivers after the card is detected.



          Download the latest driver version R378 U2 (378.66)






          - Once the installer wizard begin, accept the license agreement.

          - Select "Custom (Advanced)" install option and then click Next.

          - Put a checkmark in the "Perform clean install" option and then click Next.

          - Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.


          So far I am okay and no crashing....

            I've been encountering the same issue as this since before Christmas. Working with Premiere, After Effects and Maya has been a nightmare! I tried swapping cards, various drivers, chatting with multiple people from Nvidia, reinstalling windows, and nothing worked. I found this fix the other day and I'm just installing the driver now, so hopefully this worked.


            For the windows 10 users: I'm trying out this driver; it's the same version as the one outlined above but for Windows 10.


            NVIDIA DRIVERS Quadro Desktop/Quadro Notebook Driver Release 378


            Thanks for the fix!
