  1. Nvidia driver failed to be installed


    I have a notebook with NVIDIA GEFORCE 930MX. After the latest windows update, NVIDIA asked for driver update. the driver failed to be installed. After that may NVIDIA doesn't come up or active. i searched the device manager and found my NVIDIA device as an other device.

    When I try to update the driver,

    I have tried to download the previous version of the driver but still it can't be installed. I have asked the NVIDIA and they say it was the hardware problem. I want to ask if anyone have anyway to solve this problem?

    NVIDIA Driver Install Fails

    I managed to install the driver only, which is OK for me.

    Running the setup.exe in Safe-Mode didn't work.

    So, I followed these steps:

    1. Restart into safe mode
    2. Open device manager
    3. Find your GPU and right-click it, then select "Update Driver Software"
    4. Click "Browse my computer for driver software"
    5. Tick "Include Sub-Folders"
    6. Navigate to the directory where the NVIDIA download extracted the setup files to, and click OK.
    7. If it was successful, restart normally, and enjoy using a proper graphics driver.

    NVIDIA Driver Install Fails

    The NVIDIA graphics driver on this PC is several versions out of date, so I went to upgrade it due to an unrelated issue. I went to the NVIDIA website, downloaded the 64-bit Windows 10 driver for the GT 720 GPU. I ran the installation as you normally would only to be met with the error "NVIDIA Installer Failed", and it told me the "Graphics Driver" failed to install.

    Now I only have one usable monitor, the other is not detected, yet it turns on briefly as Windows initially loads the desktop.

    What I Have Tried

    Clean Installation

    This is the first thing I tried, I restarted the computer, waited a while, and then I ran the NVIDIA driver installer, I selected "Custom Install", and then I ticked the "Clean Install" checkbox. This failed in the same way as before. Note, I also tried "Run[ning the updater] As Administrator".

    Windows Update

    I opened Windows Update to check for updates, since this can often fix failed driver installs. It said there was a NVIDIA driver update available, so began the update process. This failed with the error "0x80070003". I tried again, it failed again.

    Manual Driver Install

    From device manager, I right clicked on the GPU, and clicked "Update Driver Software", I opted to browse for driver files, with "Check subfolders" checked, and navigated to C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\368.39\ and clicked "OK". This failed with "Code 28".

    Manual Driver Install (Automatic)

    Same as before, except I let Windows find the driver online automatically, I presume it found the same files I had already downloaded, and downloaded them again. This failed.

    I am still stuck with one working monitor, reduced graphical performance, and am unable to install the NVIDIA driver.

    This is my work PC, so I don't have a huge amount of time to reinstall Windows, so I'd rather not do that, as I have various customisations in place, and lots of programs installed. It'd take a long time for me to do all of that again.

    EDIT: More Info

    There are no NVIDIA listings under "Uninstall a Program" in the Control Panel. Yet the "NVIDIA Control Panel" app is still in the start menu, but does not start. I believe that is because there are just three DLL files in C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\coprocmanager, and no other files/directories in coprocmanager's parent directory.

    When the driver is installing, my second monitor starts working, and then stops when the installation fails.

    When the driver is installing, it briefly appears as "NVIDIA GeForce GT 720" in Device manager, after it fails, it goes back to being labeled, quite simply, "Display".

    Tried running...

    ..to no avail.

    PC Specs (from Speccy):

    • Custom build
    • NVIDIA GeForce GT720 (not from Speccy, since it just lists the monitor under Graphics).
    • Intel Core i5 4460 @ 3.20GHz
    • 16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 799MHz (11-11-11-28)
    • ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. H81M-PLUS (SOCKET 1150)

    Nvidia driver failed to be installed

    KB4025339 Fails Install 0x80070564

    Thanks
    I am trying Eagle 51's suggestions now. Windows Update troubleshooter found a bunch of errors and fixed all but one.The update is trying to download KB4025339 again. I'll see what happens. At step one troubleshooter finishes with one error unresolved "Potential Windows Update Database Error Detected-Not Fixed". Windows update stalled at 0%.

    At step 2 same troubleshooter error. The KB finished a new download failed to install.
    Did step 3 KB has downloaded but fails to install.

    If Eagle's suggestion doesn't work I'll try EdTittel's suggestion

    Tried bothe Eagle & Ed 's suggestions - do not work. Anyone else?

    I have noticed that the latest update for my nvidia drivers has failed to update. Wondering about that!
