  1. Nvidia Control Panel Missing

    Dear All,

    I am trying to open Nvidia Control Panel but unfortunately I cant open it. I have tried searching for the application but I couldnt find it. I have already updated to my latest drivers. I still couldnt find anything. The card works fine but I cant change which graphics card to choose. The Control Panel Folder in Program Files/Nvidia is missing and I believe thats why it wont open. This is a GTX 1060 card running on a lenovo laptop.

    Geforce Experience is working without any problems!

    Nvidia Control Panel - Disappeared after Windows 10 Version 1703 update

    Thanks for the information. The problem was that it also was not listed on Control Panel - All Control Panel Items after the update. It was the second place I looked when I could not find it on the desktop. I did a complete search for the Nvidia Control,
    Nvidia Control Panel and Nvidia on the C and D drives, and the Nvidia Control Panel was no where to be found. I was able to locate the Nvidia GForce Experience app (listed on the apps menu and via a search and it function fine) and able to locate the Nvidia
    Driver using Device Manager, but I was unable to locate the Nvidia Control Panel. The Nvidia Icon, which is also set using the Nvidia Control Panel, that appears at the bottom right of the screen was also missing. All is now good after talking with Nvidia
    Support and following their instructions.

    My NVIDIA Control Panel Doesnt Show On Windows 10


    One of the possible reasons you're getting this concern is due to an outdated or incomplete installation file of the driver. To resolve your query, follow the steps below:

    • Remove your old driver. It will help you delete the components of the current driver installed on your computer that may hinder us on installing the latest installation file of the new driver.

    • Right-click on Start button and choose Control Panel. Make sure you are logged in as Administrator.
    • Select Uninstall a program under Programs.
    • Choose the program for NVIDIA. Right-click on it and select Uninstall.

    If there were no any NVIDIA related products on the list, we need to uninstall the current driver from the Device Manager. To do so, follow the steps below:

    • Start Control Panel and click Hardware and Sound.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Expand the node that represents the type of device that you want to uninstall, right-click the device entry, and click Uninstall.
    • On the Confirm Device Removal dialog box, click OK to start the uninstall process. When the uninstall process is complete, remove the device.

    • Download and reinstall the new driver. Visit your graphic card manufacturer's website and download the latest driver which includes the missing control panel.

    • Restart your compute and check if you can now see the control panel.

    Let us know if you need additional assistance.

    Nvidia Control Panel Missing

    Nvidia Control Panel missing

    I keep an older PC as an emergency backup. It's a 10 year old Asus PV5K-VM mobo, Intel core 2 Duo E6750 with a GeForce 210 small basic card but produces a nice clean image. Now it has the Nvidia control Panel installed so took a close look at the drivers listed. ther are 6 drivers plus the GeForce Experience 2.2.2. Here's the list:
    1. Nvidia GeForce 210 driver dated 11/14/16
    2. Nvidia Graphics Driver 342.01
    3. Nvidia HD Audio Driver
    4. Nvidia PhysX System Software 9.13.1220
    5. Nvidia 3D Vision Controller driver 340.50
    6. Nvidia 3D Vision Driver 342.01
    The system is Win 10-64 same as it's big brother PC tho list as NT 10.0 14393. No Intel graphics installed, which brings me to another question. My problematic PC with the GTS 450 card, also has Intel HD 4600 installed. Wondering if I should just remove it. I did have it disabled for awhile and didn't seem to make any difference. My understanding is that they shouldn't interfere with each other and switch depending on the graphics being loaded. Any thoughts?
