NVIDIA and AMD Windows 10 Drivers

With Microsoft rolling out Windows 10, hardware vendors like NVIDIA and AMD are rolling out new drivers. NVIDIA now offers new version 353.62 drivers with WHQL certification for Windows 10, while AMD has new WHQL-certified Catalyst 15.7.1 Windows 10 drivers. Both of those are for 64-bit Windows, and for now, only NVIDIA also has 32-bit Windows 10 drivers. Thanks HARDOCP.

Nvidia Installer failed:
You have no drivers installed, even though you installed the old Windows 10 drivers less then 24 hours ago...

Seems I didn't reboot from the 1st install. Everything went smooth as cake.

I updated my laptop, the install failed on the shadowplay which it probably should not have even tried to install. Trying to bring up the nvidia experience however opened a hanged black window. Done messing with drivers for the night. ^^

Win 10 installation (clean) went without a hitch for me. Nvidia drivers installed just fine.

I run 32-bit on my Windows tablet (which only has 2GB of RAM), many mobile chips didn't support 64-bit actually. I also have an old X2 machine that's running 32-bit Windows 7 with 2GB of RAM (and that actually DOES have a modern enough video card to be affected here). When you're dealing with limited resources, every little bit of overhead matters!

Installed 10 over win7 on my desktop, where it decided I was running an 8 gb video card (actually a pair of 970s). I had to get into device manager and actually click on one of the cards listed there to get it to realize that maybe it could let me run over 1024x768.

So far, that's been the only hitch. I'm honestly shocked at how smooth the whole thing went.

Ran Windows 10 update and after waiting a little bit the Nvidia driver installed itself. Total time was less than hour. No problems so far.

cheap tablets with 1gb ram, even if they are 64bit run the 32bit version cause of low system overhead.

It has been public tested for a while now, right now it seems like we are just waiting for drivers to settle down. I updated my realtek drivers cause thee ones with windows were pretty bad sounding. Even now It sounds different then what they were in my 8.1 install.

Keeps failing during the installation part. Says Failed, please try again after it finishes the 2.6gb download or whatever it was. Sucks.

Nvidia has been trying to fix that for three weeks now, glad to see they're on top of things.

They can't roll them out fast enough.
My circa 2012 HP laptop with a 4 core APU, 8 gb ram and 256 gb ssd, will have to wait for updated Windows 10 drivers and/or Microsoft updates.
BECAUSE:
When powering on, it boots to the windows logo but then crash/restarts all by itself before making it to the desktop on the 2nd try (and only gives an error half the time with kernal data inpage error amdppm.sys . Oh Joy).
AND:
Crashes coming out of sleep, and recovers to desktop. Says windows encountered an error. No duh

Reboot your system and try again, that was my problem

Had issues access Nvidia control panel using the drivers downloaded from MS. (Which are the latest Nvidia drivers, but still..) Had to turn off Windaz Update temporarily and manually reinstall the drivers direct from Nvidia.

I just downloaded these drivers from the Nvidia Experience control panel...I have Windows 7....???

On a related note, I'm getting weird horizontal flickering on my screen. This started when I upgraded to a GTX970, it's hardly noticeable but it's there in games. During standard desktop operations, surfing, etc. I'm not seeing it. Do I have a defective card? Defective cable? Is this a driver issue? I tried googling it and most believe it's an issue with cables, connectors or alternatively something with vsync. I'm kind of going out of my mind because it's something you can hardly notice and maybe I'm starting to see things....

Do the troubleshooting. Exclude factors from possible causes. Crosstest your cable, your monitor, your GPU. Use HDMI? Try DVI cable and output. Use monitor? Connect your PC to your TV. Etc.

Yeah going to try something like that tonight. I do have a TV connected to the PC so will try dual displays to check whether the artifacts appear on the TV as well. Will also try and switch the display ports and as a second to last resort try a HDMI cable (The monitor is connected with DVI cable atm). If the artifacts are still there then it's either in my mind or it's a faulty card...

I was referring to the Windows 10 upgrade. The Nvidia drivers installed fine as usual.

I read some fixes to get Windows 10 to install, but didn't try them as I was reading the fixes in bed on my phone. Looks like I could have set the date/time clock forward a day so it tricks Windows in to thinking it's officially the unlock day for all, but I didn't get to try it. Perhaps today it will just install fine.
