New Nvidia Driver 446.14

Recommended Posts

For P3DV5, Has anyone tried the new Nvidia driver 446.14 that has been released? If so how is it or any issues? I believe it lays some ground work for the upcoming Windows 2004 release as well

Yes, working very well for me ... just be sure to disable NvGE "Overlay" so that your Win10 screen saver works.  Apparently nVidia aren't going to fix this issue ever as it makes Win10 think it's NOT idle.

This does disable one's ability to use NvGE to record/capture video ... but there again will save you a few CPU cycles.

Cheers, Rob.

BTW: this issue has been around for a LONG time, not just this driver update.

A minor update with the usual "no impact on flightsims" logo clearly displayed. 450.99 is the latest Windows insider WDDM 2.7 version. Will ithat driver break everything? Stay tuned.

Running .2004 Win10 and this driver with several popular flightsims for last few days. No breakage seen.

Same here. I had to update the Nvidia audio driver but that was the only glitch. I haven't seen any benefit though.

Do you still need to do clean installs of video drivers? Years ago, I installed them in safe mode after I uninstalled the old driver via control panel and ran CCleaner. I couple years ago I read that doing so was no longer necessary, because the new installers do a good job of deleting the old drivers.

Is this still true, and if not, what procedure do you use for a clean install?

Thanks.

I would NOT recommend using CCleaner ever.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CCleaner  ... read the Malware Infection section (it's a high target product for hackers).

Quote

Malware infection
After Piriform was acquired by Avast, in September 2017, CCleaner 5.33 was compromised by the incorporation into the distributed program of the Floxif trojan horse that could install a backdoor, enabling remote access to 2.27 million[34] infected machines.[35][36] Forty of the infected machines received a second-stage payload that appears to have targeted technology companies Samsung, Sony, Asus, Intel, VMWare, O2, Singtel, Gauselmann, Dyn, Chunghwa and Fujitsu.[37][38] On 13 September, Piriform released CCleaner 5.34 and CCleaner Cloud 1.07.3191, without the malicious code.[39]

On 21 October 2019, Avast disclosed a second security breach during which hackers tried again to insert malware inside CCleaner releases. This attempt was unsuccessful.[40]

I only use DDU if I run into issues with nVidia's updates or odd visual/performance issues in 3D sims/games.  Normally try to do the regular update process first ... if that fails or has problems, then I use DDU approach and manual download/install.

Cheers, Rob.

You mean that you've never cleaned something that didn't need cleaning?😉

Hi Rob, Ouch! I've been using CCleaner all this time!...I didn't realise it was a target for hackers..thanks for the info Rob...., What would you recommend as a replacement for CCleaner?  I know you are an expert guru on computers hardware/software stuff.

Thanks again!

 It's been years since I have a need to use DDU or anything like that. There's just no need anymore, unless changing from AMD to Nvidia or vise versa of course.

Since yesterday, I am on Win 10 2004 and Nvidia driver 446.14. Before, I immediately got the dreaded DXGI menu in P3Dv5 HF1 when running the TFDI B717 in VR with TrueGlass activated. Now, this does not happen anymore (same airport, weather and so on). Is it just coincidence?

Do you really use Geforce Experience? I hate this tool, never installed it again since I tried it when it was released the first time... I guess you use it for your videos, no?
