Hey, great thank-you. I have been trying to install old drivers for some hours now, Geforce 1060, but it keeps saying i must use the geforce experiance, which frankly is not that good. spoon fed gui focused on gaming with out the ability to roll things back. I mannaged to get it to defualt to 418.81 and crash the PC. seems to be occouring with a specific software, Autodesk 3dsmax, and then any thing heavy (cpu load) in auxillary software to 3dsmax, vray causes it to crash also. Any way i have attached recent files of crash. Many thanks for all the help. Not sure what to do now would be really nice to solve the issue. Will update back to 419.17 through Geforce "experiance" not expecting much though...
Great. Thankyou. I will try the boot into safe mode and the hard driver uninstall. I did benchmark the device once i recived it and it performed very poorly on battery power when compared with same hardware from other users. That being said it has performed above avarage when connected to the power. I will schedule to conduct more comprehensive GPU stress, before the hard uninstall of the drivers. Seems to be a local fault to the software will do my best to solve the issue before accepting a work around. Thanks once again for your help
Ok so some interesting developments. kemical, i followed your procedure and did a safe mode hard uninstall of the GPU driver(s). What was and is interesting, is that i managed to install one of the older versions of the driver still sitting in my downloads folder. Before hand theses driver install files where saying incompatible / use the geforce experience. Well now that this older version driver is installed i ran a couple of tests with the problem software, and it seems to be stable. So a tentative solution until further testing but that install being permitted to me is a big indicator that something was wrong, and has now been solved. Any way i will post an update in a couple of weeks if i have had no similar issues regarding BSOD and this operation.
One last technical question kemical, is it best that i post the whole folder from the crash extractor app, or would just the mini dump file suffice in the event of a future post on this thread.
And lastly. Big thanks to you both for taking the time to engage with this problem and all of your expertise. I really appreciate it. Thanks.
