Computer freezing when clicking "Adjust image settings with preview" in NVIDIA Control Panel

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
When i click "Adjust image settings with preview" in the control panel my screen freezes, the cursor isn't moving and the keyboard is frozen too (pressing numpad and capslock don't do anything).
There's a gray empty space where you should see the NVIDIA logos rotating. Everything else works fine.
I already tried reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers.
If it can be helpful, i think this started happening after i edited some settings under the "Manage 3D settings" section.

I would appreciate any input on this. Thanks

It shouldn't freeze that much just minor lag depending on the system, try doing a clean install of the drivers . . . it's the option to remove all previous settings and files relating to the previous driver.

I could leave it for 10 minutes and still nothing is happening. Also that's what i did, and it worked but then after i put my global settings under "Manage 3D settings" it started over again

Did you use DDU to completely remove the drivers?

Actually no, i thought the clean install option provided with the setup was enough?

Sometimes it isn't, try uninstalling with DDU again: http://www.guru3d.com/files-get/display-driver-uninstaller-download,20.html

That should improve things if there are any conflicts in the software and registry.

The lag is normal, but complete freezing is not.
+1 for using DDU.

So i just reinstalled the drivers after using DDU in Windows 7 safe mode. The "Adjust image settings with preview" started working again and the rotating NVIDIA logo was showing. I changed the settings under "Manage 3D settings" and the problem started again. So i guess the settings are the problem. It's not an issue for me because i don't need to go under that particular section nor i need to change settings everyday, but it's still annoying.
I'd like to attach a screenshot of the settings but it's not written in English though.

Oh, I already posted this behaviour on my PC on another thread but since you actually have this one up I might as well shoot here too.

So to quote it:
Quote:
I currently rolled to the latest driver and am on win10. I instealled the OS on the 13th of Feb.

No issues as of yet but again, some stuff is funky and graphical glitches, not artifacts, but glitches started appearing. Most specifically the weird ground hover problems on the latest Witcher 3 1.12.1

idk...

When I get home in the morning I'm rolling to 358.87 just to test a certain users theory.

But why I'm posting this.

I wanted to mention that with .43, after having applied all the NVidia Inspector profiles manually. The 1st options menu in NVCP BSODs the PC with THRED_EXCEPTION yada yada yada on nvd####.sys, the nvidia core driver.

This is to just give you guys an example. For most of you, .43 is fine and actually it was fine in all aspects for me aswell, except that going to that menu right above the 3d settings option on the left hand-side pane in NVCP, BSODs my PC after having applied inspectors profiles.

It's just, funny how these things are...
