    Hello to everyone,

    I have a problem with my graphic card drivers.
    I'm having a blackscreen every time if the graphic card is installed, even if I use my motherboard HDMI.
    Only removing the Graphic Card allow me to use the motherboard HDMI.

    After using successfully DDU in safe mode for removing GC drivers, I am blocked.

    I want to reinstall the drivers, but to do so, I need the GC to be installed. Which result again in a blackscreen, and again even if I use the motherboard HDMI.

    I am doing something wrong? Or is my GC dead? (Which functioned fine until a restart today)

    ive never had issues with DDU until this last version, when i used it to unninstall my nvidia drivers on safe mode and then restarted as normal, when it restarted back to normal mode, nothing seemed to respond, tried to restart&shut down as you normally would but windows wouldnt respond, and things wouldnt load as normal either, so i had to force "reset" my pc, and then it was fine.
    im on windows 1903.

    whats going on in there? @Wagnard

    Hey! Been a long time since I used DDU, just recently had a small issue and was wondering if it is safe to uncheck the DCH part of the NVIDIA section if not using DCH drivers?

    Hi, not really sure if I don't have the log.
    You are also the first to report this. When you mean doesn't respond, is like you can move the mouse but can't click anything?
    Totally safe , even with it ticked it wouldn't have done anything because you don't have the DCH Driver.

    where is the log located? and yes i could move the mouse, but the desktop had nothing on screen other than black background, and i just got that again after booting my pc.
    never had an issue the program before until now, im afraid it has affected something on the pc.

    log files: https://filebin.net/hht077r3tmipf3ve

    They are located within the DDU folder inside another folder called "DDU Logs".
    If your desktop was fixed after the reset and then it come back randomly, there is almost 0 chance s that DDU can do this, it is probably something else.
    If DDU were to do some damages to windows files / registry, the consequences would be for every boot until repair.
    Not saying it is impossible, just highly unlikely.

    i never had this problem before, after i used DDU on the latest version, by going on safe mode, unninstalling the gpu driver then rebooting, i had this problem, only seeing the background, without being able to click on anything, had to force reset the pc, back to windows and it worked fine, and i just recently, booted my pc and had the background screen issue again just seeing the mouse able to move it but nothing else, no taskbar, no ifles on the background as normally would be, just had to force reset again and its fine.
    just ran sfc /scannow to see if theres something wrong with my windows and it came fine as well, dont know what else to test to be honest, when i play games i never have issues either plays as intended and i do this for long period of hours.

    I apologize to the mods if the topic has already been covered. After using DDU with windows 2004, when I reboot after installing the drivers of the video card, windows update no longer find the drivers of my acer lcd. I wanted to know if anyone had the same thing. I thank those who want to answer.

    I'm having same problem. I rebooted in safe mode and removed older version of nvidia drivers. On reboot I get to windows login screen where it shows the time and I can't get pass that. After 30 seconds my pc reboots. I can get into safe mode again but not regular desktop. I'm using the latest DDU.

    Edit: I did a sfc /scannow and I'm able to boot in. Weird.

    Hi, are you able to send me the log file of this SCF run ? (should be located in : C:\Windows\Logs\CBS)
    Send then at info@wagnardsoft.com

    Check click on the big button (Set Windows Device Installation settings to Default) and try again.
    If this driver is not installing, it is possible that Microsoft removed it from windows update. You just need to get it from the acer website then.

    Note: Thanks @Watcher

    @Wagnard - Just a heads up. DDU doesn't yet remove the "nvtopps" folders (new in driver versions 456.38 and 456.55) at the following locations:

    C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NvTopps
    and
    C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\nvtopps

    Functions as expected otherwise. (love your work) :)

    Thank you Wagnard and all others involved for this great tool!

    I was wondering if you could list all the registry entries that get removed when doing clean install. I'm trying to figure out an issue I have with modfied registry entries and knowing where all the entries of nvidia are, would help me troubleshoot.

    They are listed in the logs, after a cleanup, click extended log on top. You will see in details what has been done.
