Hi
My Laptop Model: Lenovo Y520

Core i7 7700HQ
GTX 1050
16GB RAM
128GB SSD
Windows 11 Pro

as you know, Microsoft doesn't support intel 7th gen CPUs but all intel drivers work correctly. The only problem is the Nvidia driver. If I install a new release of Nvidia driver, Windows won't detect it correctly and I get an error in photoshop,bluestacks, etc.

If I let windows update install the Nvidia driver, it installs the 2018 version.

what should I do? should I install windows 10?

did you run ddu in safe mode and remove all traces of nvidia before installing it again? see if that makes a difference with newer drivers

did you try installing driver package from lenovo?

the win 10 drivers should work fine with win 11, there is no difference.
