Temps are fine.

But the message in action center is making me think. Have you got any such notification message?

Let us know.

I've never seen that notification pop up before or one like it, could the problem I'm experiencing be the drivers stopping responding or maybe my graphics card is finally on its way out?

Generally it is an indication of the GPU failure; if the issue is consistent irrespective of the driver version installed.

The graphics card was the problem! Over the last few months the performance on all games gradually got worse until the card finally decided to stop working. I am now using a new graphics card and everything is working fine.
Thank you for the help I really appreciate it.
