    I have recently installed a new GPU into my computer, from Geforce gt 710 to geforce gtx 960. Since I have installed it, I have come across a lot of problems, like getting it to work and function (for which the most part, I have fixed), however, on some games, like 'Dead by Daylight', the game would crash before I could even get on to the main menu. Other games like 'Warframe' would not have much of an increase of fps (comparing my previous GPU performance and current). But another game 'Rocket League' has been improved very well (I could barely play at low settings before, and now i'm able to use medium-high settings with better fps

    I am also not able to access Nvidia Control Panel since it cannot locate the drivers.

    I have speculated that this is because my GPU is "undefined" when I looked on Speccy, but I am not quite sure on how to fix this, even after looking up & researching for the past 3 days on improving my GPU.

    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, updating drivers, various things but no avail. Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried testing other GPUs in your rig?

    Did you do the following in the correct order?

    1. Uninstall the driver software for the GeForce GT 710 graphic card.
    2. Completely turn off (not restart) your computer.
    3. Remove the GeForce GT 710 graphic card.
    4. Install the GeForce GTX 960 graphic card.
    5. Start your computer and then wait for the Windows operating system to detect the GeForce GTX 960 graphic card.
    6. Install the driver software for the GeForce GTX 960 graphic card.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    You didn't say which Windows operating system is running in your computer.

    The GeForce GTX 960 graphic card uses almost 100 watts more power than what the GeForce GT 710 graphic card does.
    What is the brand name and model name and wattage of the power supply in your computer?

    "You may also want to try using a third party uninstaller like DDU"

    Yup, DDU uninstaller, all the way!

    Enzyness is a first-time poster who hasn't replied back in 4 days, so any further comments and advice from us is probably a waste of time.
