    Thanks for posting this! I have an ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) STRIX GL503VMF that had the RTX 2060 driver installed for some reason by the previous owner, I think, and the system wouldn't recognize the installed GEFORCE GTX 1060. Windows 10 would not update the correct driver and showed that there was no NVIDIA card connected (error 45). How could there be display drivers for the RTX 2060 if no card was found? Crazy! Not even the Geek Squad could fix the problem, and the drivers downloaded directly from NVIDIA's webpage would not work because it showed that no graphics card was installed. After days of searching the web, I found and followed the instructions in your post and BAM!!! GTX 1060 card recognized and proper drivers installed and all is well! THANKS!!!
