Akitio Node stopped working?

Hi everyone,

I've had my Akitio Node & GTX 1080 working through Boot Camp with my 2016 Touch Bar MacBook Pro 13" for a while now, but about a week ago it stopped working. I'll boot into Windows through rEFInd the same way I always do, yet my GTX 1080 is not appearing in Device Manager and my external monitor appears to receive no signal. I'm connecting through the same Thunderbolt 3 port, and the GPU still lights up when I plug the Node into my MacBook. All hardware connections are secure and I've tried multiple ports.

Any ideas on what I can do to fix this? Maybe it's because of an update?

Thank you!

If this happens following a system update, you should run DDU to remove Nvidia graphics drivers then manually install the latest graphics drivers.
