Geforce GT 730 driver issues.
Hello, Ever since I got my new computer with an Geforce GT 730 and Windows 10 I am having problems updating the drivers for the Geforce card. Every update can't complete, just saying the installation failed, without further explanation. i'm getting really annoyed by this, and have tried every possible solution I found on the internet, but without any sign of succes. So here I am, desperate for a proper solution. Please help me get this Nvidia Geforce card to work as it should. It just can't be true that it can't update it's own drivers permanently, can it?

Maybe I should've posted this thread in the drivers forum. But I just don't know if this issue is due to the driver, because Every possible driver update I've tried in previous year has failed. So it's not an error due to a certain driver version I guess.

I don't know about Windows 10 but in Linux Mint 17.3 MATE I had to use an older nVidia driver when installing a Gigabyte GV-N730SL-2GL in my neighbour's Athlon 64 X2 4600+ / ASUS M3A78-EMH HDMI-based PC. BTW. Please note the 2nd sentence in my signature.

Stability forms the keystone of true performance. Accept no substitute.

Never buy, update or ask anything until after you have done a search. Discovery is curiosity's reward.

Some use a PC to play fantasy games. Others use one to learn what real games are being played.

Help others to help you. Please post complete system specs. in your forum signature.

your current driver having problem? if no problem, better not upgrade unless you change to a new GPU if you do insist want to upgrade driver, try use DDU to clean up the driver, it might be corrupted, remove the GPU and let windows setup display from onboard. Then you plug in GPU and install Nvidia driver. p.s. win10 will try to install it's own Nvidia driver, you might need to deter the update in windows setting first, finish the Nvidia driver then only turn it on

I have just bought a GT730 on Optiplex 755 machine. I have updated all the drivers but still crashing once I open HD videos. some VIDEO-TDR-FAILURE (nvlddmkm.sys). This error is most commonly seen on users with NVIDIA graphics card issue

The problems is nothing to do with the above guys. The problem is that your card is running pci-e 1.1 1x. I know because that is causing the same issue with my optiplex 755 with a gt 730 and with a 1030 too. Because those cards are not really x16 cards. The gt 730 is a 8x card and the gt 1030 is a 4x card. The optiplex can only handle 1x or 16x, nothing in between. Hope I helped you with this... The only solution is to buy a other card that is a real 16x one. This proves it: https://www.ieiworld.com/en/qa/con_show.php?op=showone&cid=30
