Last week, NVIDIA released the latest GeForce Game Ready driver (397.31) optimized for Frostpunk and BattleTech. The driver also added support for NVIDIA's new ray tracing technology (for Volta GPUs) and for the new Vulkan 1.1 API.
However, several users with GTX 1060 GeForce graphics cards reported issues right after updating to the driver. They were stuck into seemingly endless loops: after a system restart, the PC prompted them to complete the installation, which restarted the computer, but then the loop would start all over again.
While some users were able to roll back to a previous driver, that didn't always do the trick and a few were left with no other option than using Display Driver Uninstaller to clean it all up.
Thankfully, NVIDIA now pushed a new GeForce Hotfix driver (version 397.55) which promises to fix this and other issues as outlined below.
- After driver installation, Device Manager may report Code 43 error on a few GTX 1060 cards models.
- Netflix playback may occasionally stutter.
- Added support for Microsoft Surface Book notebooks.
- Windows 10: Driver may get removed after PC has been left idle for an extended period of time.
Let us know below if you were affected by the issue and were able to resolve it once and for all with the new driver.
