    Posted: January-10-2017 at 9:10pm
I just purchased a new EVGA GTX1070 card and installed it. I followed Nick's Driver - NV Inspector guide to uninstall and reinstall a new video driver. Going from 327.23 to 368.81 on W7/64. I keep getting an installation failed on the driver. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Henry

Hi Henry,
 
A common problem, Google is your friend here,  I would be just repeating what a simple search can tell you.  A bit of reading should give you an idea of how to troubleshoot the problem.  something like this;
 
lots of info out there,

Hi Ron

Yes, true, Goggling was the first thing I did before posting here but most of the suggestions didn't work for me. The common solution was to update Windows. I spent a couple of days doing that (I can relate to those posts on how slow updates are now). Didn't make a difference. Then there were other suggestions about using Device Manager to point to the driver directly ..... or delete these files .... or delete these registry entries .... etc etc .... none of which worked for me. Then there were suggestions to download a program and run it .... I can tell you that there is no way in hell I am going to download any programs from websites (which I know nothing about) and run it on my pc.

Although in the end that was exactly what I had to do .... one common suggestion I kept seeing was to use a program called DDU from www.guru3d.com (a site which I am very familiar with). DDU did the trick for me.

Hi Henry,
 
Glad it worked out,  Using a driver uninstaller usually does it for most,  sometimes the old files get left behind.  DDU being a reputable one.
 
cheers,Beer
