Question Even After Reinstalling Windows, Content Display and Connectivity Issues

Since Windows 10 first came out I have had it installed with no issue. However, yesterday I started having random problems all related to connectivity and content display. - Some pages will randomly not load correctly in Firefox, IE or Chrome. Sometimes only part of the page will load correctly, sometimes I will get an error like "cannot establish secure connection" or some other form of error. In some cases, simply refreshing the page will solve the issue, in other cases I have to browse the page in a different browser. Some pages display correctly in one browser but not another. - Origin will sometimes not display content in it's browser correctly. - Downloads will sometimes fail to complete correctly. - Sometimes I cannot search for extensions in Firefox. Sometimes Firefox says no extensions are found, other times I will try to install an extension and it will simply say it cannot be installed. - I cannot run the Windows Media Creation tool. I have even tried downloading it from another computer and transferring it over to my computer. - Even the "photo" button on this post does not activate when I click it, but some of the other buttons do--yet simply refreshing the page fixes it. - Sometimes images or videos will not display correctly. - ALL problems are completely random (but very frequent), sometimes pages display fine, others not, sometimes fine in one browser but not another. Now here is the strange thing. I have reinstalled Windows 10 (wiping all user data) THREE times now. In every case after Windows is installed, all I download is my Nvidia display driver and Firefox, with absolutely nothing else, and even still I am having these problems. Two of the reinstalls were using the Windows reset feature (without retaining the old programs and features) and in one case I was able to reinstall using the media creation tool on a USB drive. I completely deleted the system partition to ensure no data was retained before reinstalling windows. In addition to reinstalling Windows several times I have tried: - Resetting my router - Switching from Ethernet to wireless for Internet - Swapping Ethernet cables - Reinstalling Firefox, Chrome and Origin - Using display drivers from different download locations (one from Nvidia's website, one from Gigabyte) This problem is extremely baffling as reinstalling Windows does not seem to solve the problem. Here are some photos of various issues:

Default Re: Even After Reinstalling Windows, Content Display and Connectivity Issues

Try looking into the video driver you are installing to check its fully compatible with your system, also checking everything about your video card is in top notch working order. (Power, necessary airflow, etc.)

Also, if you configured your system in any other way than how you bought it, be sure to read all the manuals to be sure it's being done correctly.

Windows 10 is fairly new. So compatibility with hardware/software that would run perfectly in Windows 7 (let's say) may not be the case with Windows 10.

just for kicks, try rolling back your video driver. And if you cant (option isn't available) download the driver for the previous Windows version you had from the nvidia website.
