[Locked] Connection to graphics adapter lost

OP Mazrandir

I have already posted in the support forum, but I think it's kind of dead over there, so I thought I'd post here too.

I just bought the D.E. yesterday on Steam, and each time I get a minute or two into mission 1 (or the tutorial), the graphics go nuts and the pc freezes. A few times I have seen the "lost connection to the graphics adapter" message before the hard freeze. My card is a GTX 1060 - should have no problems with this game. Any help greatly appreciated. The support forum thread shows others having this issue back to 2017, but no solution ever posted.
Please don't cross post topics, thanks
