    Laptop crashes when installing new Nvidia GPU drivers. What should I do?


    Hey there everyone! I recently had an issue with Windows 10 booting up, and someone helped me figure out that the GPU drivers were causing it. I have a 1050 ti GPU, and I continued and uninstalled them in Safe Mode. Win 10 did work afterwards, however, when installing new gpu drivers, the laptop constantly crashes and shuts down. What is causing this, and what should I do?

    :)

  2. GPU crashes after installing windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest on windows 10.

    I understand your concern and will help you with the issue.

    As you said, you are facing the issue while playing a game that requires better gpu.so, the issue is related to graphics driver.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps below:

    Method 1

    As, you tried uninstalling nvidia gpu and installing newest drivers(358.50),and it did not work. so, in that case I suggest you to download and install the earlier version of the driver from
    manufacturer website and check .

    If issue persists,

    Method 2

    I suggest you to disable Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 and check if it helps..

    To do so, Please follow the steps below:


    • Type devicemanager in the
      search
      bar.

    • Expand the display driver.

    • Right click on
      Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600
      driver and click disable.

    Still issue persists,

    Please contact to the manufacturer website.

    Please get back to us with updated status, we will be happy to assist you.

    Windows 10 Won't use NVIDIA GPU, Uses Integrated Graphics Instead! (LAPTOP)

    I have a similar (same) problem with my ASUS laptop.

    My Laptop: ASUS F550L laptop

    SPECS:

    Windows: Windows 10

    Processor: Intel Core i7-4500MQ CPU @ 1.8GHz

    RAM: 8 GB

    System Type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M

    Integrated GPU: ?

    DirectX Version: ?

    I have tried the steps listed above but they did not resolve the problem.

    I have attempted to download an updated driver but my driver was reported as 'up to date'.

    What do I do now?

    Nvidia Graphics Driver Crash on Fullscreen

    Hello, I recently updated to windows 10 and since have been having problems with my Nvidia graphics drivers crashing when I try to put anything in full screen mode on my second monitor. The computer would
    crash and eventually give me an error that graphics driver had crashed and recovered or that only the Microsoft basics driver is now being used. If
    I try to put anything in full screen on my primary monitor, the monitor goes black until I exit full screen. If I only use 1 monitor (unplug hdmi for other) I get a blank screen on full screen.

    I had another post with the same issue. The problem went away after using the auto detect GPU function from NVidia but the problem came back the next day and is now getting worse. I am now having trouble using the computer for anything graphically intense
    without it freezing. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    What I have tried:

    • clean install of windows 10 after initial update
    • did a safe mode clean install on Nvidia drivers (used Device Driver Uninstaller) restarted
    • downloaded the newest Nvidia driver using the auto detect GPU function
    • installed a custom install with a clean install (currently have driver version 368.81 for my GeForce GTX 660)
    • I also tried using the GeForce Experience instead of auto detect but the same problem
    Computer is Alienware X51 R2 (Core i7-4770 @ 3.4) and have Panda Anti-virus installed currently
