  • Now look for every Nvidia program and uninstall all of them.
  • Now, head over to Nvidia’s official site and go to ‘downloads’ page.
  • Type your GPU model and download the latest drivers.
  • Install these drivers and don’t forget to select the Geforce Experience while installing the drivers. Then restart your PC.
