    Using DDU should not be something usual, unless you're running into some weird issues. Even Wagnard said to use the tool only when needed (if you're having issues).
    The NVIDIA setup has a clean install option, use that instead.

    Hi. Not according to the mods over there at NVIDIA's driver feedback channel on Discord.

    I'm so confused. I had mentioned that DDU didn't work in my situation and a gang of people attacked me (even the mod Ever... something can't remember off hand the name) but thankfully, lurking here help my situation and I'm kinda new to this stuff and this being my first powerful rig for school, so, no room for error.

    the discord channel is managed by the reddit community, not anybody of remote intelligence.

    official (word from nvidia) is use it sparingly (never, unless an installation or uninstallation failure occurs)

    which matches the DDU developers guidelines for its use.

    Ha-ha!

    It all makes sense now.

    Thanks, man. They really had me going for a few days until I just calmed down and came here and read upon some very helpful articles on here. A matter fact, you were in many of them (also tsunami23, mbk1969 a few others) guiding me through it with simplicity.

    I think I'll refrain from that channel for my own sainty sake.

    What procedure would you recommend for:
    1. Installing a new driver (update)
    2. Installing an older driver (roll back)

    You didn't ask me but I'd like to answer:

    1. Uninstall old drivers via Nvidia uninstallers, install new driver. You can also try simply installing a new driver straight, it should work, but former method is safer.

    2. In this case I'd use DDU to erase current driver completely first and then install older driver normally.
    Never use Windows' driver rollback.

    Guys i had to revert. Last night Multiple lockups in games, chrome.. drove me nuts.. Had to go back to 457's.. Not a single stutter on these.. I dunno with the 461 series did to my 1080s but they are a disaster. Chrome consistently freezes up everything for a solid 10-15 seconds, but the system isnt locked.. Then if you leave it, it wakes up and catches up to everything.. Keystrokes etc.. Its SO weird. Video's will even catch up. Games were running fine but then they started as well. COD Cold War, will just STOP, you still hear it going on, and then 10 sec later back like nothing happened.

    I dont know if this is SLI issue (which i had enabled) but im honestly too tired to sit and figure this one out right now, i reverted so i can play things without throwing a fit rage.

    Like to also add this isn't just chrome related.. Opening Windows Explorer even does the same thing, acts like you have a bad hard drive on its way out (If you all have experienced that).. So whatever kicks in GPU usage, it just goes wonky.. So to the "turn off hw accel in yadda" yea thats not gonna cut it, and why would i want to do that anyway. Just sayin.

    Well it's great that you eventually found it and worked out what was going on :D

    Just as a side note - I'm on to the next best thing now !!!

    https://www.cablematters.com/pc-1368-122-48gbps-usb-c-adapter-supporting-8k-video.aspx

    It's a Cable Matters 48Gbps USB C to HDMI Adapter Supporting 4K 120Hz and 8K HDR

    Do you know whether the 2080ti HDMI ALT MODE USB TYPE-C supports VRR ? or are you going to smash my dreams again Manuel :p

    Tell your boss Jensen, to stop halting progress.. We're trying to push the envelope here !! lmao

    Two issues:

    I have my computer connected to a 4k monitor via DP, and to an LG C9 via a certified HDMI 2.1 cable.

    If I boot the computer with the TV turned off, and then turn it on, it always reverts to 1024*768. All the settings and correct native resolution are detected, but I need to set them by hand.

    Second issue is that with"Above 4G Decoding" enabled in the BIOS, I get a huge performance regression in Vulcan.

    Sounds similar to an issue I once had in an older PC, which was related to power. But it wasn't the PSU, it was the video card drawing too much power through the pci-e slot -- it was a 750 Ti card that didn't use a power connector, and the crap motherboard in that system couldn't handle it whenever anything kicked in GPU usage (was just like having a dying drive like you said!). So, something to ponder.

    I still need to disable MPOs with this drivers or get stuttering while resizing some windows, especially VLC.

    If it had similar issues in the 457's i would look into that more, but its only in the 461 drivers..

    My PSU is a 1500W Corsair (Ax1500i), Don't think its a PSU Issue, and the MB (Gigabyte Gaming 5P) has been solid since.

    Its gonna be moot, I have my Ryzen 9 5950x and Gigabite x570 Aorus Xtreme right next to me, but alas the 3090 is Far Far off... Eventually. (like Death & Taxes)
