Nvidia drivers 418.91 Caution

    Just installed the new drivers and bam screwed up my main display it stopped working had to restart and then figure out how to get my Nvidia control panel back as well as that disappeared to.
    Also reset the display back to some crappy 1024x768 res or something like that lol.
    Had to go into control panel and re enable the display to get the Nvidia control panel back and then re set the display back to 3440x1440 @ 100Hz what a screw up.
    Oh and by the way when my main display stopped working it automatically changed to my second monitor but the resolution was still set to 3440x1440 made a big mess as its only a small 19 inch running at 1366x768 @ 60Hz.
    So USE CAUTION if you update the drivers.

    You don't always have to update your driver(s) and 418.91 was specifically targeted for DLSS in Battlefield 5 and RTX for Metro Exodus.

    However if you still want to have the latest, try to uninstall with DDU in safemode and perform a clean install of 418.91 and see if that works.

    Bad news...
    I had this problem too the last week and after trying many tips to retrieve my control panel without success, I reinstalled Windows (I tried uninstalling with DDU, installing old drivers, resetting my windows... nothing solved my problem... until my last fresh install).

    Good luck !

    PS: I don’t though it was because the drivers, I though I made a mistake or else like that...

    Two tips for those who are unaware. One - always use the "clean install" advanced option when installing NVIDIA driver updates. Two - if you still have problems after clean-installing a new driver, as BlueMind mentioned, use Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) to completely clear out the existing driver before reinstalling a new one (or an old, working one) - https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html.

    I have it all fixed I had to go into the Device manager and right click on my display and select Enable device and that fixed the problem straight away .
  7. I did see this in the release notes though:

    Application SLI ProfilesAdded or updated the following SLI profiles:
    •Assetto Corsa Competizione - AFR enabled for Turing GPUs
    •Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 - AFR enabled for Turing GPUs
    •Life is strange Season 2 - AFR enabled for Turing GPUs
    •NBA 2K19 - AFR enabled for Turing GPUs
    •Space Hulk Tactics - AFR enabled for Turing GPU

    SLI support? Nice (if only I had the money..)

    If they only could make it work with sli in vr i would be very happy

    And to make matters worse, it will only work with a pair of 2080's or higher; 2060 & 2070 users are without luck.

    Why? I have always done an upgrade install (for many, many years), and never had a problem.

    When putting nvidia driver on ONLY install THE DRIVER and PHYSX.
    NOTHING else unless you specifically use them.
    No Experience, no 3d vision, no HD driver.
    ONLY the driver and PhysX

    All the others cause more issues than enough.

    I don't know how to respond to that, maybe @Ciccina2016 to a peek at my Steam profile, but it doesn't matter; ignoring people, just because you don't like what they have say, is getting old.

    The Audio HD is fine to use agree with the rest.

    As I said, if you are using it then yes it is.
    My audio is through a dedicated card and my simvibe through the onboard card, so wont need yet another driver to cause issues.

    I always thought the same as you. However, after many successful upgrades, a new driver gave me a number of problems which I struggled to fix, someone advised me to use Display Driver Uninstaller and then reinstall the same driver and all worked perfectly. Old settings and the odd rogue file can occasionally slip through the normal upgrade process which is why the "clean install" option (or DDU in an emergency) guarantees the best results. The clean install doesn't seem to take any longer so it's a no-brainer for me.

    You only actually need the NVIDIA HD audio driver if you're sending audio to your monitor/TV speakers directly from the graphics card through an HDMI cable.

    This driver is the one that fixed my issues with older sims(R3E and AMS) but was worried ACC may be adversely affected but all my games ate running really well on it, even got my highest score in Superposition 4k of 10091 when previous best was 10048 ;) using the OC that MSI Afterburner OC Scanner did :eek:
    418.91 is my hero driver atm.
