After the Windows 10 upgrade, users are facing various glitches including display crashes, WiFi cannot connect, bluetooth issues, audio not working. And the most reported issue is the GPU driver is not working. Thus, we will discuss how to fix this problem in this article.

How to Fix Display Driver Issue after Windows 10 Update?

The most basic and simple fix is to restart the system and see if it helps. However, in the Windows 10 update, this is not always working. So let's try other solutions.

Solution 1: Install the WHQL Driver Launched by NVIDIA

After the flowing reports from users that NVIDIA driver can't work on Windows 10, Nvidia released new driver 353.62 quickly to fix this issue. To install the up to date 353.62 driver, please follow the steps below:

1. Download Nvidia 353.62 driver from http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/87783, it is labeled with WHQL and the release date is July 29th, 2015. 
2. It has a size of 278.91MB so you may need to wait a while until the download is done.
3. Install: When the driver download is complete, right click the installer and "Run as administrator".  Since the driver installation may fail without proper privileges, running as administrator is quite crucial.
4. Done and Restart Computer: Follow the onscreen guide to complete the driver installation and after it is done, restart computer to ensure the driver installation is taking effect normally.

Solution 2: Automatically Install Display Driver

In this weird case, automatic driver fix tool is important because it will completely remove the old and incompatible drivers and install the right ones automatically. From Device Manager, it might not completely uninstall the drivers manually so the problem may not be fixed.

Now let's try the free driver fix tool out: DriveTheLife, a free and easy-to-use, simple-interface program designed to help scan and find driver issues and complete the repair/update with one click.

Hope you can get through the Windows 10 update and fix problems.
