    Cant install Nvidia display driver - constant restart


    Hi all

    I started having issues today while playing World of Warcraft. Occasionally it would freeze and I would get a notification along the lines of "Nvidia display driver has crashed and recovered successfully". It started happening more frequently and sometimes was restarting my PC instead of recovering. I tried to update the Nvidia driver (I did have an update) but no joy, it happened again. I tried logging into WoW and quickly changing settings, however it restarted again, this time even windows refused to recover.

    It now attempts to boot about 3-4 times then the troubleshoot options appears saying it failed to load windows. System restore can not find a restore point and Go back to the previous build refuses to work also. I am at a loss to what is causing this? At first I thought it was an issue with overheating but the temp never even went above 80. I tried rolling back the nvidia update in safe mode but that did not work either.

    What can I do, without having to reset my pc?

    Booting in safe mode I did a full uninstall of my graphics drivers. This then allowed a normal boot. Attempting to re-install my graphics driver caused the system to restart half way through and fail. I tried an older version of the driver and this caused the same. I am not sure if this is a software issue or my graphics card is ****ed. I tried to do a windows update and dont think this worked either, kept restarting and "attempting to recover installation", which I assume was when it was trying to install graphics drivers. It has also put me back in a restart loop. If all else fails I am going to try a clean reinstall of windows 10 but I really dont want to have to do this. Can anyone tell me if this is likely software/hardware issues?
