    NVIDIA driver not working after Windows upgrade


    I did a thread before about the Intel driver breaking after every reboot, but this is a different issue. My NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M driver has not worked since I was upgraded from Windows 10 1703 to 1803 (it somehow worked on Monday (August 6) though, but it broke when I rebooted my computer). In the Device Manager it shows as a code 43. I have seemingly tried every fix in the books, but to no avail. I tried:

    Disabling the driver, doing a hard shutdown, then restarting and re-enabling the driver
    Uninstalling the driver, and then reinstalling it
    Running the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter (which resulted in "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem")
    Updating the driver (there are no updates for my driver)

    As I have already said, none of those worked. Rolling back the driver wasn't an option either. What can I do?

    :)

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    DTS supported natively by Windows 8/8.1 and it should work on windows 10 too just DDL require to unlock your driver .

    Windows 10 upgrade & Nvidia GTX 660 - Windows will not install nVidia drivers

    Thank you Pavan for the reply.

    I tried your suggestion step-by-step. It did not allow me to install the nvidia drivers correctly.

    I did notice something interesting, which would make one think the clean boot should work:

    After this process didn't result in the current nvidia drivers being installed (nor my 2nd monitor), I restored back to a point before I tried. I decided to run the DDU utility and wipe the nvidia software from the system. In the process to do this, the
    DDU utility restarts in SAFE MODE. When in safe mode, the display defaults to a native 1920x1080 resolution.

    I even search the registry for nvidia, and deleted all the stuff that had nvidia and was related to graphics. Still didn't work.

    Unless you have some other suggestions, my last resort would be to back up my data, and try to do a windows 10 installation clean. I found this article and may be trying this:

    Thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.
