Outline preview bug

After updating to the two latest versions of Nvidias Drivers on my laptop Outline Preview does not work at all in Illustrator.
I tried to reinstall Illustrator, reinstall Nvidia drivers but nothing works.

The only solution right now is to switch to the integrated graphics Intek HD Graphics 530. But the performance is so much slower with this card :(

Illustrator version:
2017.1.0 Release (21.1.0 Release (64-bit)

Graphics card:
Nvidia Quadro M1000M

Nvidia driver version:
Quadro Desktop / Quadro Notebook Driver Release 384.
Version: 385.69

Dell Precision 5510 laptop

Windows 10 Enterprise 64 bit

    I was trying and following the instructions to "To switch to GPU Preview, choose View > GPU Preview". I had have tried any combination of all the settings and still not good .... Please find attached files with the problem

    When switching to Outline Mode, it just stays in Preview Mode and scrolling/zooming/moving in the artboard won't work until you switch the mode back to Preview, even though nothing really changed.
