    Nvidia Issues


    Hey,

    I am quite new with W10 (had 10074 in a VM but that doesn't count ), installed 10130 yesterday.

    I accidentally installed the Win7/8 drivers and 3d vision is not working (no option in NV CC).
    Also my GTX 480, for dedicated PhysX, shows as "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".

    Unless there is a known issue with such a setup, I guess I need to be doing a clean re-install of GPU drivers. However, I don't know how I can do it in W10. Anyone would like to guide me please?

    I'd recommend using DDU in Safe Mode to uninstall the drivers, and then install the latest Windows 10 drivers. Driver 353.38 is working great for me with my GTX 970s.

    You can get DDU here: Wagnard Tools

    Alright, here is an update. After uninstalling in Safe Mode with DDU, I installed 353.30 (didn't see any .38 - typo ?). Unfortunately, it didn't change anything. 480 stopped and 3d vision non-existent.

    Then I tried installing 352.84 and voila. Both problems are solved. I tried 3d vision too with built-in test. At first I had 2 displays on, and the test app had trouble initializing, screen going funny. Task manager didn't help but I could log off. Then tried with 1 display enabled and it worked as expected.

    I guess I will have to be careful with updates for a while.

    Now, I have Logitech F710 (I found some instructions online) to be installed. Not tonight though.

    Do I need to do a anything to enable automatic driver installation again? I believe DDU disabled it.

    353.38 is a hotfix driver which you can get here: GeForce Hotfix driver 353.38

    If 352.84 is working for you, then I wouldn't worry much right now. Once W10 hits RTM, then I'd look at updating to new drivers.

    You shouldn't need to do anything to enable automatic driver installation again. I've never had to.

    Glad to hear you got things working right.
