Audacity Crashing Nvidia Driver

Hello, I’m fairly new to audacity, I have the newest version.

My pc is running win 11, ryzen 5600x cpu. I recently just started recording through audacity for my youtube videos because I like the effect settings. My mic is dynamic hooked up with xlr. I start a new track and suddenly my taskbar freezes when I click on it, then my screen blacks out.

Everything comes back except the nvidia icons, control panel, experience, rtx background. All crash. Audacity still running. I do a test recording but playback sounds wrong. So everytime i try and record with audacity, this happens. No other time. My pc is healthy, I’ve checked various things. I can record audio through other programs and it’s fine.

Known issue? Appreciate some help
