I had some BSODs with latest nv drivers... Never before I had them, only with the latest 2 or 3. I rolled back 1 by 1 still having BSODs (via uninstall and install, not by windows itself). Eventually I took the driver from ASUS website... No more BSODs

Do you think there might be a link with your post? Like something didn't remove correctly?

I did use driver sweeper and when installing I put a check on: Perform Clean Install (or something like that)

ASUS Hero XI + Intel i9 9900K + ASUS Ryujin 360 + Corsair 32GB 3200MHz + ASUS 2080Ti + Samsung 970 nvme 500GB + Crucial MX500 2TB + ASUS Thor 1200W + Be Quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 v2 + ASUS XG35VQ + ISP 400/40

The registry is a scary place, and you should only go there if you're really, really sure of what you're doing.

But thanks for informing everyone that driver cleaners usually cause more problems than they solve.

My methods do not conflict with the EVGA thread. My method is easier to follow anyway.

Intel Core i9 9900K HT 5GHz
GIGABYTE Z390 Ultra
AMD ASUS STRIX OC VEGA 64
G-Skill Trident 2x8GB DDR4 4000MHz
Samsung EVO NVM.e 250GB

pls don't crap the threads..even if the info has been taken from other source or correlates to it then it does not mean that sharing of information is bad....

its like blaming the book publishers for publishing knowledge n distributing to many even though it was meant for some specific university written by some specific user........

Never argue with an idiot. The people watching might not know the difference biggrin.gif

From horses mouth:

Q: Do I need to uninstall my older driver first?
A: No. It used to be the case that an uninstall was first required. Today the recommended method is to overinstall the newer driver on top of your older driver. This will allow you to maintain any current NVIDIA Control Panel settings or profiles.

Is this good for just updating drivers as well?
