  2. Automatic GPU drivers installed

    Hey guys for the past 6 months I've been running a gtx 580 and I've just sent it back today as part of the step up program to get the gtx 680. For the next 2 weeks I will be using my old 9800 gtx+. I installed the card and booted the computer and upon getting to the windows screen, windows searched automatically online and installed drivers. I rebooted and checked the driver version, and sure enough, it had found and installed the latest drivers for my card.

    I've always manually installed drivers by starting up the nvidia process and all that, what windows did, was it a sufficient driver install? When I get the gtx 680, I'm assuming it will do this again, would it be a smart idea to manually install the driver or would windows version do the exact same thing? Thanks guys.

    Why cannot prevent W10 from automatically installing updates?

    Why does W10 keep automatically installing my Nvidia graphics drivers?

    I have done all the 3 steps here:
    https://windows101tricks.com/disable...river-updates/

    to try and prevent windows from automatically installing device drivers, but every time I uninstall the Nvidia graphics drivers and the computer restarts, Windows will always automatically install a driver for it.

    This is making me fume!

    Could someone please tell me is there another way to actually stop Windows 10 Pro 1809 form automatically installing device drivers?
