Nvidia graphics uninstall problem

This was on Win 10 64bit.

 

I had an Nvidia GeForce card with all the bells and whistles. I was having black screen issues when restarting only (not shut down just restart)

 

So I removed the graphics card as I also have an on board Radeon basic Windows one to see what would happen.

 

All my problems disappeared :) Or so I thought.

 

The Nvidia drivers and all the other Nvidia stuff refused to uninstall no matter what I tried (safe mode etc)

 

So I tried Display Driver Uninstaller from guru3d as a last resort before throwing the machine out of the window. Ran it in safe mode

 

I was so surprised, everything related to Nvidia is gone, even from the control panel.

 

This is not a recommendation for everyone to do this as I don't know anyone else's circumstances.

 

I'm just telling what worked for me :)

... before throwing the machine out of the window.  ...

 

:lol:  I bet everybody knows that feeling.

 

And yet, through it all you stayed calm (or at least rational), true to your profile suggestion.  

 

Out of curiosity, what graphics setup did you finally settle on?  

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

Just left it as the onboard basic Windows Radeon one.

 

Works really well so it's staying for now :)

 

I hate graphics drivers as much as printer ones !!

Same issue occurs with my mother's HP Envy touchscreen which runs NVIDA ge. I've had to rebuild the machine thrice and sent back to HP once. I'm now trying with a clean install of windows 10 (as opposed to a dirty upgrade). I think it may result from NVIda and Microsoft both attempting driver updates.

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

and on the driver update issue, something I only learnt this week.

some Windows 10 Updates can be made to stop: device driver updates.

 

bring up the Power Menu (Windows key + X)

click System, Advanced System Settings, Hardware tab, Device Installation Settings, click No and Save Changes.

Backup now & backup often.
