Nvidia GeForce 364.47 Drivers May Cause Massive Issues



/ 3 years ago

After the release of Nvidia’s GeForce 364.47 driver, some users are reporting a host of issues, most notably BSODs. During the installation, some users are experiencing a black screen and a failed installation, then a crash. The system then fails to properly boot Windows afterwards. Despite the WHQL certification, it seems that this bug managed to sneak past Nvidia’s bug testing.

According to the latest user reports, it seems that booting into safe mood and manually removing all of the driver files solves the issue. For those who haven’t updated, using Display Driver Uninstaller to uninstall the driver, then manually deleting all the driver files before installing 364.47 seems to prevent the issue from popping up. Some users are also reporting that multi-monitor systems are also running into the issues more often so running a single display to install seems prudent.

These issues have popped up in recent months after a good period of stable drivers. Perhaps Nvidia should reconsider how they test their drivers in the future. Hopefully, this issue will be fixed quickly before less tech savvy users run into the issue. The driver has improvements and fixes for Tom Clancy’s The Division, Hitman, Need for Speed, Ashes of the Singularity, and Rise of the Tomb Raider so if you don’t play any of these, it may do well to skip the update for now. This is one more example why device drivers should never be automatically updated.

    “booting into safe mood” .. I wish my wife would boot into “safe mood” in the mornings.
