Hey Guys, I just upgraded to Windows 10 earlier today while I was at work. When I got home I noticed that my video drivers would not work for Nvidia GeForce, and the GeForce Experiance would not show up on the desktop even though it was open.

 

It took me about a hour or so to figure it out, but I figured it out none the less.

 

When you go to install or update a new Nvidia GeForce Driver, don’t use the Experience window. Go to the "http://www.geforce.com/drivers" and select your Model Graphics Card and Select Windows 10 x32 bit or x64 bit OS. When it is finished downloading find your driver and right click and select  "Run As Administrators".

 

When you go through the process make sure you do a CLEAN INSTALL. I found that this works best because I tried to just do a normal install or upgrade and it continued to fail until I did a clean instillation.

 

 

I hope this helps guys.

I had an issue with NVIDIA drivers after upgrading to Windows 10, they wouldn't install at all and always return a Code 28 or an error saying that the operation timed out. I downloaded the drivers from NVIDIA website, didn't work. I went in the Device Manager, tried to install the drivers manually by pointing at the extracted location of the drivers, didn't work. Used to "Check automatically for update" option, didn't work. Tried to install the drivers from Windows Update, didn't work. Then randomly when rebooting, I saw that the drivers installed. No idea what caused it to work in the end too.

Aura, 

 

I had to reinstall using http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/87789 and "perform a clean install" because my Nvida control panel would not open 

 

That the same issue I had

I don't think doing a "Clean installation" would have done anything, because the drivers weren't even installed at that time. I had just clean installed Windows 8.1 and upgraded to Windows 10 right away.

When I did a clean installed of the nvida drivers I notice that they migrate the drivers from 349.xx to 353.62 or I didn't updated the drivers.

This specific problem was supposed to have been patched two days before release.  Lots of articles on it in ZDnet and Forbes, Computerworld.  The most succinct and useful among them, is here.

 

I'm hesitating whether to put my remaining 8.0 then update to 8.1 and then to 10, on another Dell Latitude 6510 that has Nvidia, or on one that doesn't.  What matters, is that this model absent the Nvidia (for I have two) -- had NO Dell or other drivers on it, worked fine with just the default drivers per Win8.0 through 8.1 through 10, including the touchpad.

 

Not sure I have geforce, but maybe the problem is the same with other Nvidia's.  But after this mishmosh, I don't know if I want to even TEST Win10 again.  Burnt out.    :bubbles:   :crazy:    :axe:

brainout, the issue discussed in this thread isn't the same as the "botched" NVIDIA update from a few days ago.
