    what do the numbers in the nvidia driver mean


    the drivers are in this format 43x.y for example

    sometimes y increases when a new driver is released and sometimes x increases when a new driver is released. what is the difference between when x increases and when y increases?

    i dont like to update my drivers that often so is it ok if i only update whenever x increases? i always use the clean install option each time i update the nvidia driver

    also will outdated intel card drivers have any affect on the nvidia driver? intel card drivers are released very frequently and i like to wait a couple of months before i update my intel card

    :)

    NVIDIA DRIVER 307.83

    The issue still the same.

    I went to NVIDIA Web site and they suggested to download a new driver

    GE force 353.62. I was able to downloaded but was not able to install it due to:

    "NVIDIA Installer cannot continue this graphic driver could not find compatible graphic hardware"

    I don't know what to do anymore

    Any other suggestion?

    Fall Creators Update uninstalled my Nvidia driver

    Thank you so much. I looked in Device Manager as you suggested and found the versions listed. I also see how the version numbers do coincide with the nVidia numbers, just the decimals are in different places. So Windows must have installed the 22.21.13.8494,
    which would be 384.94 in an nVidia version. I think I had version 381.65 installed previously when I looked at the nVidia >display driver folder in Explorer. That version doesn't show up in the Device manager listing if compatible hardware is checked. So maybe
    it wasn't compatible. Thanks for telling me how to check for those previous drivers. I will wait a bit before updating any drivers and watch for updates.
