Answer

A:

Hi Toyking23,

You may try changing the Windows Updates setting to “Download updates but let me choose whether to install them” and check if the drivers get installed automatically after uninstalling graphics card driver and restarting the computer.

Change how Windows installs or notifies you about updates

Also, you may try older version of driver from Nvidia driver download website and check if it works, so that we can make sure that its not the new drivers that is causing this issue.


Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,
