    Hello to everyone, first thing i want to say thank you for your work on NVIDIA driver,

    then i need some help about a strange question started since the 461.72 version, everytime my laptop monitor goes off due to power plan i set, my laptop has a power driver state failure error while if i set to never the display off time and set to anything (10 mins in my case) the sleep time everything goes well.

    what do you think is the problem with switchin off my monitor? something related to acpi table? i have the latest ATK driver by ASUS :( don't know what to do now i have monitor always on and sleep time set to 10 mins.

    my laptop is an asus fx502vm equipped with a gtx1060 3gb gpu

    You don't need NVSlimmer.
    It's very easy and straight forward to do manually.

    Keep the following folder and files only and delete the rest:
    1. [Display.Driver] folder
    2. [HDAudio] folder
    3. [nodejs] folder
    4. [NVI2] folder
    5. [PhysX] folder
    6. [PPC] folder
    7. EULA.txt file
    8. ListDevices.txt file
    9. setup.cfg file
    10. setup.exe file

    [​IMG]

    Open setup.cfg with notepad:
    near the end of setup.cfg file, delete three highlighted lines below:
    Code:
    <file name="${{EulaHtmlFile}}"/>
    <file name="${{FunctionalConsentFile}}"/>
    <file name="${{PrivacyPolicyFile}}"/>
    [​IMG]

    Save the setup.cfg file.
    That's it.

    What are the "nodejs" & "PPC" folders used for? I always delete them, whatever functions they add I don't use.

    Actually, I have the same question on PPC and nodejs.
    I usually just erase all the unnecessary folders and remove the eula from cfg as well.
    When trying to look at what is necessary, I noticed different behavior on another utility: the nvcleanstall 1.9 utility from techpowerup would also not install the PPC folder and nodejs folder, BUT it keeps the gforce experience folder instead. So yes, inquiring minds want to know what is really necessary for just video driver, audio and physics (and real usable rtx features). I have no use for telemetry, ansel, shadowplay, gf experience, etc.

    I even set the nvcontainer service to manual so it is not running in the background. If i ever need the service I made a start/stop button in my tiles for it, or I just use inspector.

    I do have 2 rtx cards in my pc, so if there is something unique to them I'd like to know what that may be,

    Also, after installation I usually delete the ras dll, nvtopps.dll and nvFBCPlugin.dll from the nvidia corpo folder.
    (I don't use DCH and the microsoft store is removed/disabled from my PC, along with autoupdates, I manually pic from the ms update catalogue for select updates, most telemetry and other check in items are also turned off, no hacks, just standard levers in gpo, local policy etc - these actions are my choice and up to me as I like a clean fast private pc)).

    So it would be cool not to install those things to begin with just to be erased afterwards, anyhow, and save a little time/effort.

    The PPC folder is the Nvidia USB C driver for RTX Series 20 cards VirtualLink. node.js is a Javascript runtime. I'm not sure if the driver needs it, but reading the following link Nvidia may use it as part of Geforce Experience.

    More here on Node.js: https://nodejs.org/en/about/

    You're welcome. I'm glad I could be of help.

    Further research: Geforce Experience uses the chromium embedded framework, and Nvidia uses node.js as a part of that. So unless you use GFE, I don't see a reason in keeping that folder.

    As always mate, really appreciate the work you put into these clean drivers.

    On a sidenote: I really hope they fix that Shadowlands issue soon. Can't have my details on ultra without those flickering bits and pieces. I have yet to install these though, but from what I can read, they are still not fixed in these drivers.

    Shadow lands will be fixed when Blizzard fix their sensitive shader code that generates bad optimized data.

    There is something wrong with the archive for old versions. After the first few entries, they're all listed as "undecrypted folder" and you can't download them.

    From searching online it seems to be a common bug with Mega, and the fix is for the owner to drag the items out of their parent folder then put them back in.

    Archive not working. Every file and dir after 460.79 is encrypted, missing the key.

    See above post.
