How to Fix ‘Installed Version of The Nvidia Graphics Driver Has Known Issues’?

As the notice says, the version of the Nvidia graphics driver you have installed has some known problems. To fix this, simply update to the latest driver version recommended by your system.

You can either manually update the driver or use Nvidia Geforce Experience. Geforce Experience likely won’t install the same driver recommended by the notice since you can’t select which driver release you want to install, so manually installing the driver would make more sense.

Method 1: Manually Install Recommended Graphics Driver

From time to time, graphics card manufacturers release new and improved graphics drivers that are specifically optimized for the latest games. You can quickly download the driver you are looking for by visiting NVIDIA’s driver download page.

Note: If your graphics card is AMD, you must find the correct driver version from the AMD official site.

The driver download page typically gives you the latest driver available for a particular GPU, so in case you need to find the exact recommended driver version, you will have to use a search engine is a quicker approach.

For example, if you need the Nvidia game-ready driver 528.49 release, then just search for “Nvidia driver {version number}”; [try this]. It will give you access to the page from which you can download the driver immediately.

Find recommended graphics driver.

Once you find the driver, download it and install it on your PC. After installation is complete, see if the installed version of the Nvidia graphics driver has known issues notice is resolved.

If you are facing difficulties installing the driver, try performing a clean driver installation and check the supported products section on the driver page to determine if the driver is compatible with your GPU series.

Method 2: Use Geforce experience to download the latest driver

Updating your Nvidia graphics driver to the latest version using Geforce experience is the easiest way.

  1. Launch GeForce Experience on your computer. You can download it from the Nvidia website if you don’t have it already installed.
  2. Click on the “Drivers” tab at the window’s top.
  3. If a new driver is available, you will see an option to download and install it. If not, you can click on “check for update.”

  1. Right-click the Windows icon on the bottom left of your screen and select “Device Manager.”
  2. In the Device Manager window, expand the “Display adapters” category.
