    NVIDIA Control Panel won't open


    I can't get the NVIDIA Control Panel to open. I click on it through the Windows Control Panel and the cursor will spin for a few seconds, and you can see the process start and run for a few seconds in the Task Manager, then it stops. Will not open up. Tried rebooting, but no help. The system shows as up-to-date. Any ideas?

    Hi

    Did you clean install the driver, via the Custom option?

    I'm honestly not sure where the Custom option is yet.

    However, I went into Control Panel/Device Manager and clicked on the display adapter. I selected "Update Driver" and it downloaded and installed 353.62. After I rebooted I had a NVIDIA icon in the system tray which I was able to right-click and launch the control panel from there. Interestingly enough, Windows Update said their were no updates when I checked last night.

    Anyway, looks like problem solved. Thanks for the response!
