  1. Windows Update trying to install old NVIDIA Display drivers?


    I noticed that windows update keeps trying to install this driver "NVIDIA - Display - 26.21.14.3200 (2)" which seems to be dated around October 2019 or December 2019. Does anyone know why windows does this and how to stop it? I do actually have some vsync issues where vsync either has to be on or off, otherwise my game will look choppy despite having 90 or even 100+ frames. I am planning on using DDU sometime to fix it but it don't really bother me that much since I just have to either have it on or off. but anyways any help would be appreciated!

  3. 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.
