Thanks to FredeGail
for the instruction.
Different culprits pointed towards your NVIDIA Graphics Driver. Driver Sweeper will ensure that you'd have a clean install at the end of the procedure, and by that no leftover files that'd bork the system.
- Make your way to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers and download the latest driver for your card, save it to your desktop for instance
- Uninstall the Graphic driver you currently have and all its extensions (do not reboot yet)
- Select all the NVIDIA components and analyse them
- Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you've downloaded previously
