The initial problem I had was a crash to a white screen caused by an error in the most recent Nvidia graphics update. 

 

The message said something about how the driver was the cause of the crash and now it has recovered.

 

I set out to uninstall the Nvidia drivers using DDU, but when I tried to reinstall the new drivers I got an error message saying the install wouldn't work because I was missing NV12.dll 

 

I wasn't able to fix the missing the NV12.dll issue to finally ended up restoring to a point about a week ago.

 

I noticed the Nvidia applications and drivers were then reinstalled as well.

 

The problem is now my computer is really slow.    On start up I can see the 4 dots that are the beginning of the windows flag logo grow almost per pixel.

 

It seems that anything that is related to a graphics issue is the worst.    

 

Changing windows sizes is slow whether they are minimizing or maximizing or closing.

 

I've also attached a "gpu tech" screen shot.

 

I'm a lost ball in tall weeds today so I'm really hoping someone can talk me through this.

 

Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to get this far.

Hi,

 

Try this...

First... Visit: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/78873/en-us and download the GeForce Game Ready Driver version 344.48 WHQL (306.00MB)

 

Issue
On all supported versions of Microsoft Windows, uninstalling the NVIDIA driver using the Windows Device Manager may not remove associated files or applications.
Explanation
Microsoft has confirmed that this behavior is by design. If you wish to uninstall the NVIDIA driver, it is recommended that you do so using Add and Remove programs.

See the Microsoft KB article 2278714.

Uninstalling Drivers Using Device Manager is not Supported
Do not Use Windows Rollback for Graphics Drivers
To reinstall a previous or older NVIDIA graphics driver, do not use the Windows rollback feature. This method will not reliably restore all the previous driver files.
Instead, use the Windows Add and Remove programs to remove the current driver, and then install the older driver using setup.exe.

 

After installation and reboot, launch Disk Cleanup (Click Start, Enter disk cleanup in the Search program and files window. Right click Disk Cleanup in the list and click Run as administrator. The app will check your computer for unnecessary items and give you a window to select and remove the items. If the system is still performing poorly please post back for the next steps.

 

 

Best of luck and Please keep BC posted

Ok.   I was able to download and install the current drivers.   Thats an improvement.    I couldn't before.

 

Installation seemed to be uneventful.    Tried to start a program that uses a light amount of graphics and immediately got a new problem.    Error popped up saying it was unable to create a direct x something

 

Doing clean up now

Clean Up is done.    Going to try to start another program to see if the direct x error comes up again

Reinstalling the drivers seems to have helped with most of the graphics issues and it seems to be working.    But there are a lot of odd things that are happening I've never seen before.     Google Chrome is really messed up.     Cap locks was running backwards and screwing up my password logins.    I unhooked all the extra HID related equipment but I'm still getting some weird results to common inputs.

 

Click on a blank and some of the page highlights.     Stuff like that.    Sometimes no always and not on every site.    Didn't do it here when I was logging in.

 

Drop down menus show up but are empty.
