    Hi,
    I'm having a big trouble in making my computer work fine.
    I had the nvidia 21.83 drivers installed on my PC and everything worked fine then, when the 23.11 drivers were released I installed them and the computer as slowed downed, I went into the "Device manager" and under "Display Adapters" it was my card: "nVIDIA Vanta/VANTA LT" with a red "X" in the icon, I went into the "Display Properites" under "settings" I clicked on "Advanced" and on the "Adpater" tab under "Adpater Information" everything was with the following written: "<unavailable>" since then I can't install the previous drivers (21.83).
    I have trued to install them in many different ways and I can't make my computer work right.
    Right now on Device manager >> Display adapters >> NVIDIA VANTA/VANTA LT everything is fine but if I go the Properties >> Driver >> Digital Signer it's written: "Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher" and I don't think that, that should be there. And like this my computer is to slow and it wasn't and I know it's because of the drivers. When I drag a window the window is dragged by piece if you know what I mean, some part of the window is moved the other part just a second later, this is because of the drivers and this thing applies also when scrolling thing, maximizing, etc...
    Please help me, I need to make this work normal.

    Have you try booting to safe mode. and install vga driver only?

    or
    you can roll back the driver to your previous version!

    I have update to 23.11 ..and now animator 3.0 is not crashing anymore ?

    or
    reinstall 23.11 ?

    hope this help

    Woohoo that was my suggestion
    In your face JJ :p

    Seriousy tho, you should be ok with the 21.83 drivers on a more mature graphics card like the Vanta.
