Since Blender depends on the graphics driver, especially the CUDA driver when rendering on the GPU, attempting a driver update while it's running may cause issues. Does Blender work properly after the update finished or are you still experiencing issues?

@Robert Guetzkow (rjg) After the update, everything works fine.
