I bought a used Powerspec 1510 a few years back. It's been a good laptop and runs any game still... Except Red Dead Redemption 2. The game requires a new Nvidia Driver and I can't update the driver on the laptop.

The 1510 comes with a hybrid GTX 1070. It works fine with the driver from Powerspec, but that is a really old Nvidia Driver. I'd like to update the driver, but when I load any new Nvidia drivers, the computer does not boot properly (freezes during boot). I'm able to rollback the driver, but then I'm back where I started...

Anyone have any suggestions?

Things to do:

1. Download a backup of the old working driver and the latest Nvidia driver for your card.

2. Download and install DDU and driver removal utility and watch a youtube tutorial on how to use it.

3. Boot into safe mode and use DDU as prescribed and then install the new Nvidia driver, now cross your fingers and hope it works.
