NVIDIA is a popular company in the gaming community because it produces some of the best graphics cards for computers. If you are a computer gamer, chances are that the graphics card in your computer is manufactured by NVIDIA. Although the company manufactures solid products, there are cases where certain problems may arise, which we will solve today. In this last article in our troubleshooting series we will show you how to reset NVIDIA drivers in Windows 10.
It is always useful to have the latest graphic drivers on your computer, because they offer improvements over the old version. Sometimes, although new drivers may cause problems on your computer, you may need to go back to the previous version. There are two ways to return to a previous version: using the Display Driver Utility (DDU) and retrieving previous versions from the NVIDIA website, or using the Windows Device Manager.
Using the display driver utility
- Download the latest working version of the NVIDIA driver at https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx.
- Uninstall all existing and previous NVIDIA graphics drivers and associated software using the Display Driver Uninstall Utility (DDU), available at https://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/17830/.
- Install the drivers downloaded in the first step. To do this, run the executable file, select Custom during installation, and then select Run a clean installation. This destroys previous installations and then installs the latest working version.
- Restart your computer to complete the installation and then try the previous steps that caused you problems.
Using the Device Management Console
- Press Windows + R , enter devmgmt.msc. This opens the Device Manager console.
- In the Device Manager, expand the display adapters, right-click the NVIDIA adapter in this category, select Properties , and then click the Driver tab.
- On the Driver tab, press the Rollback Driverbutton.
- When a confirmation window appears, press Yes to confirm the backspace. Once this process is complete, restart your computer to fully apply the changes.
- Try the previous steps where you had problems to make sure the dismantling actually worked.
