The other day I was trying to downgrade my Nvidia driver to 353 because I was trying to play a video game in a stretched 4:3 resolution but apparently with the latest windows 10 drivers theres some kind of issue and it was impossible to get it to stretch.I went into device manager and right clicked uninstall on my GPU under display adapters, I think this may be where the problem occured. I was trying to uninstall the driver so I could fresh install the old one. After I did that uninstall I installed the 353.30 64 bit windows 10 driver that I downloaded from the nvidia website.
Everything worked fine but after a few hours the driver somehow stopped working, my second monitor turned off, I no longer have nvidia control panel, etc. I reinstalled the driver and again everything was fine for a while until it disappeared again.
So I'm on Windows 10 Pro, and a while back before I reset Windows and am where I am now, anything Minecraft related would crash as soon as it finished loading. So I'd open up a modpack or just plain Minecraft and as soon as it got to the title screen, boom, blue screen (Page fault in non paged area) so I looked everywhere for answers but none of them worked. Ultimately I just reset my PC (while keeping files if it makes a difference). So after installing my programs again Minecraft was no longer an issue, it worked as expected. Fast forward to today.
I open up Nvidia Geforce Experience to use Shadowplay, I click on Shadowplay, flip the on switch, and when I click the "Allow Desktop Capture" button, Bam same exact blue screen as before. I have tested both my RAM and SSD (windows memtest and Samsung magician's test for my 850 Evo) I don't know what is causing it anymore, I could test and see if the bluescreen occurs while on my integrated graphics or something. (Not sure if Geforce Experience would even open without my card though.

General decrease in PC performance. So yesterday I updated my NVIDIA drivers from GeForce Experience (driver version 355.60) and ever since that my PC's performance has dropped considerably. Things are generally slower, but it is most most noticeable in games.
before the driver update I would get solid 60+ FPS in Battlefield 4 at Ultra settings, but now the average is 30-40 FPS on medium settings. Same situation for all my other games. I have tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it, and installing an older driver to no avail.
Ok so when i upgraded from Windows 10 my boot time was 23 seconds so that was fast, but after downloading the new nvidia driver for my GTX 970 my boot time is now really slow, i just turned on my PC right now and got my phone to see how fast it boots up and it booted up in 1 minute and 50 seconds and im like wtf why is it so slow and when i turn off my PC it usally takes 10 seconds but now its 20 seconds to turn it off. I want to know whats up with my PC...
I am currently running the 358.50 version of GeForce drivers, however there are newer ones available (361.43). For some reason when I tried updating, my system got really unstable and eventually blue screened with KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE. When I rebooted it was fine, until I tried to use a graphics intensive application (Photoshop) that caused my laptop to switch from Intel HD to NVidia. My computer locked up and crashed again. I booted into safe mode and rolled back the driver, but I need to install that driver eventually as I use this laptop for gaming and Photoshop.Maybe another driver needs to be updated?
I recently did a clean install to get Windows 10, but I'm getting two issues atm. The major one is a freeze crash where the computer will freeze, and the have the audio go really slow, robotic or at other times it will stutter/repeat. Sometimes the screen will also go black. It started happening around once per a day after I installed Windows 10. The only way to get out of it is to restart the computer, but when I restart it, the computer doesn't get past the windows loading screen. But on the 2nd restart after manually pressing the power button, it finally goes back to normal and boots up properly. It's happened around 4-5 times already since I installed Windows 10 a week ago.
The second issue might be related but around once a day, my screen turns black and I get a notification that Nvidia driver (model #) has stopped responding and has recovered. It's really quick and lasts only 3-5 seconds, so its not that annoying. This is a issue that I've had for a while even back in Windows 7. I always update the drivers for the GTX 660 Ti using Geforce Experience from Nvidia, but it never solves the issue.
I did get 1-2 BSODs since installing Windows 10, but I'm not sure if they are related.In the dump file, there is information that says the BSOD error is a "VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR (199)" with the driver reporting a invalid fence ID. I looked it up online and I tried a solution, but it didn't work. I'm a bit stuck on what to do next. I also forgot to mention that if I press the sleep key on my keyboard and later awake from it, windows tends to slowly crash and eventually BSOD. By slowly, I mean that the taskbar starts to disappear as well as the start menu, but I can still use my programs such as Chrome to a limited degree, which is quite weird.
So, I was updating the graphics driver, and the computer rebooted itself, when it turned back on all I saw was my chosen accent color in the frame of my main monitor (I have 3). I then turned off the computer, removed the card, and plugged one of my displays into the MOBO. The PC booted just fine, and ran normally. I turned off the PC, and put back in the graphics card and booted back up, I got the same thing. I'd been meaning to do a system refresh, so I chose then to do that. I did the refresh, and now whenever I have the card in the PC, I get stuck at the HP Boot screen (not letting me enter the BIOS) and the PC beeps once, then not again. I turn off the PC, remove the card, and Windows runs perfectly.
I have been getting these nvidia driver crashes, where the monitor turns off by itself and then recovers and I can continue using it normally, but lately the drivers just crash and a few moments after, the PC reboots on its own but fails to turn on the monitor, which forces me to do a manual reboot. After the manual reboot, I go to Event Viewer and find these errors: Critical, Event ID 41, Source Kernel-Power. Error, Event ID 3, Source Kernel-EventTracing.
I am running Windows 10 with the Insider Program. It's the 64 bit version. I have the latest (just checked) NVIDIA driver for my GTX 560 Ti.
In the last few days I've experienced a problem in which the graphics driver crashes and then recovers after a few seconds. When it crashes, the screen goes black, as if there's no signal. Then it goes back on, but if I was playing a video when it crashed, the media player (MPC-HC) needs to be restarted, otherwise playback cannot be resumed.
It also happens during general use, ie web browsing and such, though it certainly is more frequent when playing back videos. I'd say 80% of the crashes occur during video playback. And when that happens, in addition to the black screen, the GPU's fan goes full power until the driver is restored.
Since NVIDIA hasn't released a new Windows 10 driver since July, is it safe to say that it's a hardware and not a software issue?
I'm having this issue for a few months already. But today I probably made it even worse.
Here is what happens:Until yesterday I had Windows 8.1, and sometimes (One day every 1 or 2 months) I would get a BSOD when trying to play some games. I would get an error on the BSOD saying: "Your PC ran into a problem and needs restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you."... "If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error: VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE(nvlddmkm.sys)"
After that BSOD, my PC would restart. And then I would not be able to start any game. The screen would froze, the game would close, and I'd get the following error: "Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 350.12 stopped responding and has successfully recovered".
By that point I would not be able to play anything else. After getting that problem for the first time (A lot of months ago), I discovered that the only way to "fix" it was to do a System restore to a few days back. By doing that, everything would go back to normal for a few weeks, maybe a month... and then it would happen again (BSOD, followed by restart, followed by games not opening, followed by a system restore...)
Well.. today I experienced the same thing.. BSOD.. restart.. error... tried to do a system restore, and this time it didn't work... So I decided to try something different and updated my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, hoping it would fix everything..As soon as Windows finished upgrading, I got a BSOD, a restart, and after that I can't open any games... Now I get the same message as before, but with a different driver version (When windows upgraded, it installed the most updated driver I believe)... I had an old version on windows 8.1 because that fixed the problem a few months back...
Well.. right now I'm experiencing the error: "Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 353.54 stopped responding and has successfully recovered".And since I just upgraded to windows 10, I can't really do a System Restore anymore...
Today is 12/5/2015 and i had a total of 100+ of gb on 12/3/205. On this laptop i play games but i usually delete games i dont play anymore i just want to know i there is a file on my laptop now adding files to it and taking up space
I upgraded Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit to Windows 10 Pro 64bit on Wednesday July 29 and everything went ok until today I noticed that files on my 2nd hard drive keep disappearing. I always have my OS on one hard drive and keep all my data files on another hard drive.
Before I upgraded to Win10, I used Seagate DiscWizard to clone my Win8.1 to an identical hard drive and then upgraded the Win8.1 clone to Win10 and kept my original Win8.1 hard drive as a backup just in case something didn't work.Just so there isn't any confusion, I have 3 hard drives:
1. Original Win8.1 Seagate 300GB 2. Win10 Seagate 300GB 3. Data Seagate1TB
I noticed today that one of my soundcards isn't working correctly and the Win10 beta driver is a little buggy, so I decided to remove my Win10 drive and put my original drive with Win8.1 back in. While using Win8.1 I saved some files to my Data drive.
I then decided to go back to Win10, so I removed my original Win8.1 drive and put my Win10 drive in. When I went to my Data drive I noticed my files I saved while using Win8.1 were gone. I then swapped my Win10 and Win8.1 and the files were still gone. I saved some files again while using Win8.1 and they again disappeared when using Win10, so then I saved some files to my Data drive while using Win10 and they were still there when using Win8.1, so files I save to my Data drive stay when saved with Win10 but disappear when saved with Win8.1 and then boot to Win10.Then I tried another test and while in Win8.1 deleted the files on my data drive created with Win10 but they reappeared when I booted to Win10.
I installed Windows 10 earlier today, and since installing it I've been having an issue, whenever I launch any browser, whether it be Chrome, Mozilla, IE, or Torch, it causes the taskbar to disappear, along with all of my desktop shortcuts, and I can no longer right click on my desktop to bring up the small menu for shortcuts/personalization.
I've already tried things like terminating the "explorer.exe" process, and restarting it, and I really don't know what else to do. It may also be other programs that cause the taskbar to disappear, such as games, but I haven't been able to test it, seeing as just launching a browser makes it disappear and I normally launch Torch as soon as I turn on my PC.
why the Command window keeps popping up all the time and I did look up as to whats going on and can't seem to find the problem, restart, turned it off and just let it sit there doing nothing and yet still pops up, the 29th is when everyone was able to get it so I did and have not had this problem with windows 8.
I upgraded my laptop and desktop to Windows 10. Everything OK after re-setting up Homegroup, including file and printer sharing. However, shared printers on desktop suddenly have become invisible to laptop, although shared files are still visible. I deleted the homegroup and set up a new one - same problem, shared printer invisible from laptop, shared files visible.
Yesterday, I downloaded Windows Update MiniTool. It's a portable program where the 7Zip file contains a 32-bit EXE, a 64-bit EXE and an INI file which is apparently some sort of language file. About an hour after I unpacked it, the 64-bit EXE's icon disappeared. I deleted the folder and the shortcut I created, and when I unpacked it again, I left the 32-bit file alone. Eventually, I downloaded that batch file for rebuilding the icon cache, and I thought that that fixed it, but this morning, I discovered that the fix was only temporary. Apparently, there's some other issue causing the icon cache corruption.I also have IrfanView, which is portable, and I've downloaded several legacy games where I created EXE launchers with Bat To Exe Converter, including icons I made with Greenfish Icon Editor. I've never had any trouble with any of those icons. I extracted the 32-bit file, just to see what happens.
When I hook up an internal hard drive in win 10 my DVD drive disappears . Cant find it in explorer . The second hard drive takes the D letter and no DVD rom is shown . When i disconnect the HD the DVD returns as D drive . SATA connections on everything .
I have had to remove and add my user account five times in the past because of some random failure of Windows Store or other apps like Photos and Mail. By failure I mean those apps don't launch at all - not from the start menu, or desktop shortcut or app list. Now that time has come again because the mail app won't launch.
I have tried all possible solutions I could find online. I've tried wsreset, powershell commands, nothing has worked for me. On the system where it's happened now, my system has 4 online accounts and one local account which is the only admin account. There are not many third party apps installed except for some like ESET antivirus, WinRAR and PowerISO.
I have an install with a low end Celeron-based Acer laptop that serves mostly as a desktop, hooked to a big monitor via VGA cable. Unfortunately the laptop must be opened to get to the power button.
with auto-arrange etc UNCHECKED [so, supposedly icons do what you make them do], the icons will rearrange themselves in a random fashion, resize differently, "ghost-out", etc. it really is maddening because user-installed Apps and just simple file paths are impossibly difficult for non-tech users on windows 10 [and its immediate predecessor].
what is the PERMANENT cure for this? I see a good number of threads on MS boards re: this problem on 8.0 and 8.1, none of which are encouraging. seems microsoft is pretty clueless about it - This does not happen on all systems of course, but in my experience, connectiing Intel HD-family graphics to external monitors is a roll of the dice [pretty solid with AMD or Nvidia]. Sometimes no sync at all occurs, sometimes resolution is difficult to set [impossible for non-tech users], primary display designation is lost/reassigned, etc...
