So it says there are more recent drivers for my GPU and when i click express or custom install drivers (it doesn't matter which as it happens with both), it goes dim, the pointer turns into the processing circle and I can hear my HDD reading/writing.

I've had this problem for a while and have been putting off posting here or trying to find a fix but this is obviously not a good idea.

Irate owners of NVidia graphics cards have taken to support forums to complain that automatically-installed drivers have broken their computers.

As reported by Gordon Kelly on Forbes, there are many people complaining that updates to NVidia drivers -- which are installed without manual intervention -- are causing problems, and even killing computers.

It has always been a fine contest between Nvidia and AMD, where Nvidia have usually been ahead of the game.

Gaming laptops like Acer Predator, ASUS Ro G, Alienware, Razer prefer Nvidia GPUs.

Nvidia is the leading GPU manufacturer in the market.Microsoft has taken Windows Update out of the hands of users so the process is, for the most part, completely automated.In theory, this sounds great -- no more worrying about having the latest patches installed, no more concerns that a machine that hasn’t been updated will cause problems for others -- but an issue with NVidia drivers shows that there is potential for things to go wrong.The problems the automatic update causes are quite varied.People are experiencing random crashes after the update has installed, while others have problems with multi-monitor setups.
