    Hi! (DXDiag Attached)

    A new GeForce experience driver came out yesterday as I'm sure many of you are aware and when trying to download it, I realised I didn't have enough space on my SSD (C Drive).

    Can't really remember why but I decided to uninstall the graphics driver from PC, restoring my PC to default graphics (dodgy resolution etc).

    I then freed up a bunch of space (Over 50GB) and tried again. However this time, a new error appeared: The standard NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of windows. Please update using "insert link to NVIDIA drivers page" to download the correct version.

    I then went to this website and attempted to manually download the latest driver (downloading the file) but after downloading the files, on the Nvidia Installer program, it says "The standard NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of windows. Please update using GeForce Experience".



    Obviously, these two statements completely contradict each other which is extremely frustrating.

    If it means anything I'm running a non-activated windows 10 64-bit Home, GTX 1060, i5 7600k 8GB DDR4 Ram

    All help extremely appreciated!
