    Hi, I seem to be having some crashing issues with games, and it doesn't help that I can't remember what I have done in the past but:
    I have a memory of putting the machine in safe mode disconnecting from the net and running DDU and when I rebooted windows couldn't obviously do it's download of GPU drivers thing .. and so the resolution was very low ( my native is 1440 p ) .. yet this time after several attempts it still boots into native resolution?
    So is this an issue?
    I then install the latest Nv drivers and get crashes AC Odyssey / Metro Exodus etc?
    I haven't got any overclocks on the CPU or GPU, it's very weird.

    Any thoughts or clues would be much appreciated!

    If you have a recent computer with UEFI, the display could be on your native resolution. As long that you see in device manager that you have a "Standard Vga adapter" that mean the GPU was removed.

    OK, thanks for reply, I did wonder what section was best.
    In my un geek like mind it could be any number of issues .. I just wanted to know if Windows was doing a sneaky on me by putting Microsoft's version of the GPU driver .. and causing conflict.

    Thank you so much for your software and help! :)

    Moff to the Nv driver section to tell my confused sordid story of hardware hiccups.

    I've tried or a few time on insider previews and did not encounter problems.
    But I advise to be careful if you try as I only did limited testing on a non final OS

    Hi, I used DDU in safe mode (safe + network):

    Selected NVIDIA then: Clean + Restart.

    The driver is still in Windows when I restart the PC.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thx in advance.

    Check if it's not windows update that reinstalled the driver. You can also email me the log located within the DDU folder at wagnard28@gmail.com

    This happened to me yesterday as I uninstalled all Nvidia programs in programs files ( I wanted to clean up old files and reg).
    I didn't use DDU but maybe this helps none the less. I did disable WU so it couldn't DL and install the driver. I first uninstalled HD audio and PhysX which needed a reboot on each to clear, then I did display driver and again rebooted.
    After about 30sec before I could install new driver I see windows installed drivers, but if you looked at program files nothing shown, but Device manager does, so I installed new drivers and then check DiverStoreExplore and I see 2 entries for NV, one with "Nv_dispi.inf" and one "nv_dispiwu.inf" and I think the last is from WU and that was what it installed.
    I do clean out old ones but being the naming is different DiverSoreexplorer doesn't mark it as old, guess should have removed that one first.

    Anyway, though it might help others I normally never run into this and guess most user either if you just use NV installer.
