Re: nVidia driver made everything worse
I have had no problems with several updates of the nVidia graphics drivers.
Have you tried first uninstalling the drivers in Device Manager *****including
checking the box to remove the driver files****, AND uninstalling the nVidia
drivers in Control Panel > Programs and Features, REBOOTING, and then installing
the new downloaded drivers? (Right click the downloaded drivers, click the
Unblock button, Apply and OK.)
