    Windows 10 GPU driver


    So last time W10 updated my GPU driver it went and downloaded nvidia 432.00 driver.

    I remember reading somewhere on the web that if you update your GPU drivers then W10 will just revert back to 432.00 driver.

    Is this true ? Was this issue ever fixed in W10 ?

    Also do i have to disable driver auto update for W10 from

    control panel >> system >> advanced system settings >> hardware tab >> device installation settings

    Should i select the "no" option before installing a new GPU driver ?

    Windows Update will only force a video driver onto your machine if it determines that your current driver is older than the one offered by Windows Update.

    So if you were to go to Nvidia and get the latest current driver for your card and install it, Windows Update will not try to revert it to the offered 432.00.

    Wanna, so then is it ok if i do not disable driver auto update from here :

    control panel >> system >> advanced system settings >> hardware tab >> device installation settings >> 2nd option "no"

    Is it ok if i don't disable it in device installation settings and just install a new driver without disabling ?

    As I replied in your other post on this same topic...

    It should work fine without disabling anything. If you are going to use DDU to do a clean install of the drivers, you may want to disconnect from the internet during that process, just to insure Windows Update doesn't try and force a driver on you before you can install the one that you want.

    How about we keep any further questions on this topic in this thread and let the other one die. No need for 2 on the same subject.

    Yeah, sorry i replied in the other topic Wanna, let's keep the discussion it this thread. That was an older thread, but i didn't knew if i should keep replying there so i just started this one.

    I'm not gonna use DDU. I will just make a clean install in the nvidia setup since the nvidia offers that option. But yes i will be installing a new driver version not an old one.

    So if i install a new one it should work without disabling it in device installation settings ?

    Might have to install a new driver because FIFA 20 keeps crashing and gives me a DXGI error device removed.

    That is correct. You should not have to disable anything. Download the newest driver for your card. Run the setup. Skip the Geforce Experience install unless you know that you use it. Choose custom install. Check or uncheck the choices you want. You only really need the video driver. Choose clean install and run it.

    And with that you should be good to go.

    Wanna, just wanted to ask do you have any idea what might cause a DXGI device removed error ?

    It sounds like DirectX to me, but reinstalling DX didn't help so that's why i'm thinking of installing new drivers. I searched on google about this issue with FIFA 20 but there doesn't seem to be a permanent solution for it.

    The most common causes of that error can be either the video driver, or a card starting to fail.
    Did this problem just start when Windows update installed the 432.00 drivers on your system?

    Regardless of the answer to that question, updating the video driver is the easiest first step in troubleshooting.

    So I would say you are on the right track.

    Wanna the card isn't failing trust me.

    FIFA 20 is the only game this happens. Other games running on the same engine (Frostbite engine) aren't giving me this error.

    Also my GTX 950 temp never goes above 72'C. In most games it's about 69'C only in very demanding games it goes to 72'C. In FIFA 20 for example it always stays at about 64'C.

    It's the ASUS STRIX version of the GTX 950. I actually bought it a few years ago mainly because it's a lot cooler then other versions of the same GPU. I heard other versions of GTX 950 go up to 85'C from other manufacturers but not from ASUS.

    On nvidia site max temp for this card is 95'C so it is well below dangerous temperature.

    But yeah i don't know what to try anymore. Only in FIFA 20 this happens i have nothing else to try except installing a new driver. Some other users on the web says this might be a problem related to the Frostbite engine and there isn't really a permanent fix for it.

    Wanna i forgot to ask.

    If i want to install an older driver like older then 432.00 then do i still have to disable auto update in device installation settings ?

    If you want to install a driver older than 432.00, then yes, you will probably have to jump to all the hoops of disabling stuff to prevent Windows Update from overwriting it with 432.00 again. I personally wouldn't do that though. I run the newest available Nvidia driver on my GTX 970 with no issues. It's a similar card to the 950 in your specs so I would assume it should work fine on your card as well.

    To me it makes the most sense to install the newest available driver so you get all the security and bug fixes that are included in them.

    peace
