    I'm on a SB 2, GTX 1060 6gb model.

    Specifically fortnite keeps crashing with the error: DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED

    I'm on the nvidia driver 397.93

    I imagine you can use Shazam and find out the song and research it.

    Sadly the registry fix did not work.

    I also can't find other surface book owners who have the same problem and I assume there are others who play fortnite.

    Maybe it's a hardware problem with my surface and I should ask Microsoft for an exchange...

    Thank you so much - My wife now has it as her ringtone. I really appreciate this.
