Latest NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Drivers for Windows 10

  1.    #1641

    Hi, I have a problem with Windows 10 V. 1809 and my GPU
    I have a very old desktop computer with a GPU NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS, After formatting my computer and Install the OS, the WU starts to download NVIDIA 341.74 driver, but this driver is for notebooks. The final driver for my GPU is GeForce 342.01 Driver For Windows 10 64-bit - December 14, 2016

    1.- If I install 342.01 Driver before the WU starts downloading after a reboot WU will download 341.74 driver, and after that the NVIDIA icon will inform me about I have a new update (342.01 Driver)
    2.- I can not find NVIDIA 341.74 driver for desktops
    3.- If I don't reboot after WU installs NVIDIA 341.74 driver my computer will freeze
    4.- if I install a NVIDIA driver for notebooks, can I harm my system?

    Any help is more than welcome

    Thanks

    This is the driver you need, it is the Geforce 8 series, the 800M series will not harm anything other than you might be able to see the screen after it installs. You will also need to turn off the System Properties - Hardware - Device Insytallation Settings.

    I had the same trouble with an old Nvidia 6 series driver.

    I tried out version 430.00 and after a day used DDU to uninstall them and reinstalled version 425.11.

    With version 430.00 I found that images weren't as sharp around the edges ie slightly fuzzy looking, Also gaming didn't seem as smooth. For now I'll stick with 425.11
    Have you tried the 430.25 release?
    That 425.11 driver is built around WDDM 2.5 so theoretically the new 430.00 series drivers should work better on 19H1 with it's new WDDM 2.6.
    Theoretically of course.
    I will do some benchmarking, I find the new 430.25 driver better.

    I've got the 430.25 driver here but not tried it out yet. I'm waiting for NVIDIA to release the 430 series on their site before I try them again

    That's a good plan. There are lots of reports of memory leaks with 430.25 and DX12 games.
