On Windows 10, I'm playing a fairly heavily modded Skyrim ; it therefore crashes often. I don't mind it, I think it's worth it.

The thing is, since last week, after a CTD, my Nvidia Card 950M GTX card stops responding and I get this error in the device manager.

This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)
A device which does not exist was specified.

And then if I "scan for hardware changes", the card disappears of the "Display adapters" section and goes in "Other devices" with another error :

The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
There are no compatible drivers for this device.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Drive

Restarting the computer always fixes the issue but disabling/reenabling the card doesn't. Any idea what causes this and how to address it?

Thanks a lot for your time & consideration.
