Thanks Immo! Yes, I think I’m going to leave GeForce alone. Only had it as it come with the laptop. I sure hope the problem is fixable.
That right there...that's sage advice. I, without fail, ghost my drive to an external before changing ANY system files! Been bitten in the ass too many times to fall for that one any more.Just make sure you back up everything beforehand just in case.
Oh, that doesn’t sound good either. Is it working properly under 417.35?I had issues with new drivers as well. With RTX 2070 after playing heavy games, pops up message: “Rendering device has been lost” and game freezes. Reliable voltage limit hits and power limit goes 102%. Had to rollback to 417.35 version.
I have no issues with 417.35 at all.Oh, that doesn’t sound good either. Is it working properly under 417.35?
I tried fixing my laptop today. Got a usb and formatted it. But only had a Mac available to put windows on the drive. Didn’t work. No bootable media. So I went to my local library to use another pc, but they wouldn’t allow exe files. So I’ve got to wait to use someone else’s pc now just to get a bootable copy of windows. Not fun.
Next time, you should try if you can boot in safe mode with networking and uninstall the graphics driver with DDU.
Yes, this is why I’m going to do a fresh install too. Yes, it means having to put everything back, but I’m not chancing the problem still existing and ready to pounce again. Once I know the fresh install is ok. I’ll back that up.„Funny“ to read this here, as I am right in the middle of formatting my SSD to install Win 10 fresh again. Something I had to do twice last year.
It started with „why is Calculator not loading?“ went over „Store apps missing“ and every try to correct something just made it worse. Microsofts „solution“ is „do a clean start and create a new profile“ which is essentially „loose all your apps and possibly everything within the profile“. Just tofind out, that the problems did not go away with it.
So I iron the drive and start anew — like usual. I don‘t trust my backup, as the problems usually start unnoticed, until you have backed them up too.
And I have a Radeon GPU... So maybe it‘s just M$ messing it up again, stumbling over their own feet and introducing incompatible „enhancements“, even to themselves.
I swear, I haven‘t changed anything. A sentence I usually hear from MY customers, when the call for help...
Once I convince myself to do that, I consider that as a chance to get rid of old habits and old trash that might have piled up in the months after I did it the last time.Yes, this is why I’m going to do a fresh install too.
