  1. Windows 10 trying to install updates for old gpu drivers


    Hi


    I recently upgraded from a AMD gpu to a Nvidia gpu. I used the AMD clean up utility tool to remove all AMD software before I installed my
    Nvidia drivers. The new gpu is working fine. However, Windows keeps trying to install old AMD drivers through the Windows Update tool. For example, right now it wants to install Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. driver update for AMD Radeon (TM) R9 380 Series and Advanced Micro Devices - MEDIA - 11/16/2017 12:00:00 AM - 10.0.1.6. As far as I know, I have no AMD software or hardware in my computer. How do I stop Windows update from doing this?

    :)

  2. Windows 7 wont install drivers

    i dont think anyone here understands what your asking either when its nearly a 90% english dominated Tech forum.
    Step 1
    reinstall windows from scratch
    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.

  4. Windows 10 trying to install updates for old gpu drivers

    Windows 10 Trying to install drivers for old video card? Help.

    So I upgraded my GPU from an NVIDIA to AMD card and Windows 10 keeps saying it has an NVIDA graphics driver update. The driver update fails to update but never goes away so Windows is continually letting me know it has an update ready. Any help on how to resolve this? Thanks.
