Hi ,

So I turn on my PC today and see that windows has some updates. SO I run them and restart my PC. WHen it starts up the resolution is really small. So I go to device mgr to Check the status of my video card and this is the error message it gave me!

"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

Its not the drivers... they are up to date!

Is my GPU dead? Or is it something else?

Thanks
 
Solution
Uninstall the old driver, reboot, run driversweeper, reboot, reinstall last know good version of your video driver, and don't ever install MS Update recommended video drivers.

I tried that and no luck. Nvidia installer cannot continue..This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware. Also, I did clean out the old drivers first.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
