How To Roll Back Nvidia Driver ?
In some situations, your device drivers might spoil the user experience when they are supposed to make it better. When you are busy working on your computer, you may face a driver problem after you update your graphics adapter to the most recent NVIDIA release. Incomplete installation could very well be the cause of this problem.
You will also face such situations if there are some specific issues on your computer. Some of those issues are:
- There might be some bugs on your computer.
- Your OS might not be compatible with the updated version of drivers.
- There might be a fault in the internal program structure.
The above issues might pop up in the case of NVIDIA drivers too. You will have to roll back NVIDIA drivers if your system has the following symptoms:
- While playing games, you are facing lags and jitters.
- You might be having some bottleneck error.
- The driver chip might be getting over-heated.
- The video rendering might not be functioning properly.
- You will be getting driver warnings or error pop-ups often.
Rolling back the NVIDIA drivers on your computer means restoring the previous version of those drivers. To do the same on your Windows 10 computer, follow these instructions:
- On your computer, make use of the Search feature and open your Device Manager.
- Locate the Display adapters category. Now, expand this category and select NVIDIA graphics.
- Next, choose the Properties option. You will find a pop-up dialog box.

- After choosing any of the reasons, click the Yes button to confirm the rollback process.
- Now, you need to wait patiently for some time. Allow Windows 10 to restore the previously-installed NVIDIA driver version.
