When installing video card drivers, it is always recommended to uninstall the current drivers first. You can do this with a free tool Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU)... It is also recommended to disconnect from the Internet when installing drivers.
This way you can be sure that the DCH drivers will not be installed by Windows 10, although DDU disables this feature. In this guide, we'll walk through 3 basic steps to reinstall your graphics card drivers:
- Download drivers
- Removing drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller
- Installing drivers
Follow the steps below to successfully reinstall your graphics card drivers.
1. Downloading drivers
We recommend using the standard Game Ready drivers. Using DCH or Studio drivers can cause problems.
We recommend trying different driver versions. Some driver versions may cause problems during mining. Installing an older version may fix the problem.
1. Select your graphics card model.
2. Select your operating system.
3. Save the driver in your rig and continue with Removing drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller.
2. Removing drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller
Display Driver Uninstaller is a driver uninstall utility that helps you completely remove AMD / NVIDIA graphics card drivers and packages from your system, including all associated data (registry keys, folders, files, driver store).
1. Download DDU hence... Scroll down to find the download link.
2. Unpack and run DDU.
3. Select drivers AMD / NVIDIA from the dropdown list.
4. Disconnect the LAN cable from Riga.
5. Click Delete and Restart.
3. Installing new drivers
After DDU removes the drivers and reboots your rig, make sure the LAN cable is still not connected to your rig. Then navigate to the location of the pre-loaded drivers and install them.
Follow these steps to install your graphics card drivers:
1. Run the downloaded driver file.
2. Use Express installation or Custom installation (we prefer Custom installation and disable any additional options that are optional, leaving only the drivers themselves).
3. Reload the rig regardless of whether the installation process requires it.
4. Connect the LAN cable back to your rig.
