  1. Windows 10 Home trying to download a old NVIDIA driver problem


    I fear Win10 updates so every time I turn on the PC I click in the windows update to see what it downloads!

    Today I saw a NVIDIA driver with a old date from 2016 and I quickly disabled my internet connection like I was being hacked or something *Smile

    I never had this problem before but since I have it now I googled a little and used this solution:

    But Windows 10 still wants to download the driver after I restarted the PC!! Any way to prevent that?

    :)

    Which version of nVidia driver should I use for Windows 10 Pro 64-bit?

    Try Nvidia display drivers from MSI site. Do not download drivers from Nvidia site or Windows Update.

    Before installing drivers delete your all old drivers. Let's see if it works.

    Windows 10 Update Nvidia GeForce 6150 se Nforce 430 porblem

    I'm a Home User currently running Windows 7 on a Gateway Desktop PC, and I have reserved the Windows 10 Free Upgrade. The Graphics Card on this PC was an on-board NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. After
    receiving an incompatibility message when running the Windows 10 compatibility utility, I installed a new Nvidia card GeForce 8500gt and installed the Windows 10 compatible driver. I then uninstalled the old GeForce 430 driver. I then ran Windows update
    for version 7. When trying to install Windows 10 Upgrade, it is still returning the old video driver when it does the compatibility check. Anybody know of a work around on this?

  4. Windows 10 Home trying to download a old NVIDIA driver problem

    Well in the end Windows 10 just forced the update down on my poor PC and now from NVIDIA driver version 376.33 now I have version 376.53 installed by Windows! Not sure why but the driver listing on NVIDIA site does not shows 376.53! Why not update to 378.49 that is the latest???

    Any ideas why? till now all is well but...

  5. Happened to me too. Ok I was running a real old 358.xxx set but I hated this catching me before work this morning. These should be optional as I only want to update things like GPU drivers when I'm good and ready. I hate the way Windows does this

    and yes I don't get why it didn't choose the latest although given that nvidia updates drivers every time the wind changes it may be just as well as I certainly don't want Windows update pushing these so regularly

  6. Glad to see I'm not the only one! I have nothing against update video drivers but I don't like to update often cause they might push something messed up *Smile I usually like to update only when I really need. Anyway I played a lot today both 2D and 3D games and everything is okay but I really hope that change I made prevents a next forced video driver update!!

  7. I googled around and this has happened to a lot of people and generated quite a bit of heat. I did some brief testing and my games (not that I play much these days) seem ok. 3D Mark scores more or less identical to before so all appears ok. I thought a read somewhere that the creators update may allow us to make driver updating optional once again but I might be wrong

    Download the GPU driver you wish to install, then go here and download DDU. Run DDU (click the reboot in safe mode option, then pick clean and restart). While it is running you should get a message saying DDU has disabled a feature where windows automatically downloads driver updates. After rebooting you are free to install your desired driver and should never have this issue again unless you reinstall windows.

    DDU is posted on GeForce Forums, it is a sort of unofficially endorsed work around Windows 10 Home trying to download a old NVIDIA driver problem :p

  10. Thanks man! I knew DDU but I just used in my old laptop to fix problems! This new one never had any problems so I never really installed DDU.

    I never knew it had a feature like that!! But is it safe? I mean it will probably edit something on Windows so can this edit cause updates problem in the future? You know how Windows is *Smile Maybe it's better to just leave it the way it is now *Shock

    Windows 10 Home trying to download a old NVIDIA driver problem

    For some strange reason I don't get driver updates via WU (everything is set to do so) so I use the WU mini tool, it offered a nVidia driver which although the version number was higher than installed the date was 2016 (Oct), the latest one offered by th nVidia website was dated January, I chose the official nVidia website's version. Seemed strange though.

  14. Yeah for me it was the first time ever to get a driver update via WU. Microsoft works in mysterious ways *Smile
