I've been having this problem for some time and have been trying to remedy it for quite some time now. I was hoping one of you fine fellows could help out.


After a update to the graphics card driver of my Geforce 840M sometime around june-ish, error messages would pop up from time to time saying:

"The 'NVIDIA GeForce GTX 840M' device is not removable and cannot be ejected or unplugged".


At times this would then either proceed to mess up my display or just do nothing.


I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver through Geforce Experience (the way i normally get my driver updates), uninstalling the driver and installing through a manual update from the Nvidia website (although the driver was from 2015, Nvidia has a horrible "archive") And I just decided to put up with it.


I've done scans of my laptop and checked the files and programs and I can't see anything that's interfering with the driver. (unless I've missed something...)


A relog of my user account normally fixes it, but I'd like to get this sorted if possible to never show up again.


I'm running windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 laptop


If you need any more info, then I'll be happy to oblige.

An illusion is as real as the person who sees it, but wouldn't that be an illusion in and of itself?
