Windows 10: Latest NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Drivers for Windows 10
Had to stop using the latest driver 361.43
PC was locking up randomly in windows, never got to try them in a game.
went back to my older driver and everything's fine again
New hotfix driver is up. 361.60
This is a GeForce Hot Fix driver, version 361.60 that addresses the following issues:
- Crashes in Photoshop & Illustrator
- Install & clocking related issues
Thank you. First post updated.
I had to reverse the last update, causing 2-3 second screen blackouts.
New 361.75 whql driver available.
Do these driver updates really make much of a difference? It just seems that everytime the wind changes Nvidia have done yet another update. With so many updates in short spaces makes me wonder about the amount of QA testing.
My old laptop still runs an AMD 6970m card with gpu drivers last updated about 4 years ago. Everything runs just fine. All the games I have run within reason well. My older laptop with Nvidia 8800 GTX has drivers that date back to 2008 in it and no such problems. It seems to me that drivers are pushed to accommodate game releases but shouldn't the likes of Nvidia and AMD be pushing the game manufacturers to make their game better and conform to their drivers rather than Nvidia and AMD bending their drivers to suit the games. That's why consoles are so much simpler. GPU updates are another those windows things that are risky aspect to update, things can get broken or maybe a game that we liked stops running as well/or stops working because of a driver change that was done to accommodate some recent release. A case example is a couple posts pack where the new drivers were causing black screens every few seconds forcing a rollback.
Currently I have the Nvidia 980ti in my desktop which came around October/November time. So the driver version in it is around 355/356 (I forget). So by my reckoning I'll just leave those in for a few years. It just seems to be a total overkill on gpu driver updates.
99% are game updates to keep up to speed on current releases. Occasionally there may be a fix mixed in, I think!
Most new drivers are released to support big game releases that require changes to the driver or simply the addition of an SLI profile etc..
Ok. Just seems that maybe the games should themselves adapt to the driver rather than the other way round. Seems one of the main reasons is SLI or Crossfire. I never use them so I guess that minimises the amount of problems I see.
This update does seem to be about accommodating new games:
Nothing stated about improvements/fixes for Windows.

I went to the NVidia site, but all the drivers that show are for Linux. I tried searching for Windows, but none turned up.
This is for an HP dv9700 laptop PC that's over five years old.
Anyone got an URL for the proper site?
After installing Windows 10 Home on 2 computers, I have found that the graphics drivers are having trouble updating.
Can someone assist me on fixing this?
Will check back in the morning.
I just completed a dirty install of Win10 (10074) on top of Win8.1. I would have done a clean install but I was hoping not to have to reinstall all my Steam content. Looks like I'm going to have to do a clean install to solve this, but on the off...
anyone have a good driver for this slightly older vista-era laptop?
the machine is a HP DV9917CL.
I have it running with the old HP vista 64 driver. it works pretty good but I get some flashes and blackouts on certain aero functions .
