    Beware of Windows Update - nVidia Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1

    This Nvidia driver update package notification is showing up on Windows Update as an Important update for both Vista and Win7, instead of the usual 'Optional' for this type of update. So I did some research, and found that most folks installing this update are receiving a BSOD / incomplete boot upon reboot of the system, of which not even a System Restore is able to resolve.

    So you might want to just hide the update through Windows Update (right-click the update, and select 'Hide update'), and instead update your graphics drivers as you normally would... directly through Nvidia (by direct download, or by using the auto-update feature built into the newer Nvidia driver packages). Here's one article I found detailing the update...

    The update I posted about refers to the 'Important' version, and not the 'Optional' integrated / mobile versions, the latter of which I wasn't even aware of.

    Thank you redduc900 for saving a lot of people a lot of grief. I personally go a step further and routinely hide and never install any Driver Updates offered by Windows Update -- because from Windows 98 to Windows 8, Driver Updates rendered untold millions of machines unusable.


    Use Windows Update for Windows OS updates only and install drivers from hardware manufacturers and if possible only after imaging the OS partition.

    I hope someone can help me. I was unistalling some things on my kids pc that wasn't need. I wasn't paying attention and ended up deleting 2 or 3 things that had to do NVIDIA. Im pretty sure one of them was display driver. I have been trying to redownload the stuff but I'm not sure what to download. I noticed one of my sons games has the NVIDIA drivers to download right from the game but it wont let me cause its only for windows below 7. Since I have unistalled whatever I did by accident their internet connection is very slow where it takes forever for pages to load, etc. Their pc is also trying to install the following but keeps failing: nVidia - Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.2, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.3 - NVIDIA GeForce 210

    I don't know what to do.

    If your display driver needs to be installed then download a driver on a working computer then copy it to a USB Flash drive and install it on the PC with the NVIDIA GeForce 210 video card.

    The card is GeForce > GeForce 200 Series > GeForce 210 > Select operating system
    Go here where it says Manual Driver Search:
    http://www.geforce.com/drivers



    The point of this thread is not to allow hardware drivers to be installed by Windows Update and to instead install them by downloading them from manufacturer's web site only.
    In other words, to use Windows update to install Windows updates only, not video card updates and other hardware updates.

    Definitely start a new thread in this section if you have other problems and people will help you.

    I also was receiving that update request. I did try to download it just last week & I guess I'm lucky because it failed to download. Thanks for the heads up, won't try that again.

    Since I use my GPU for FAH, I never allow a MS driver update for a major system component if the manufacturer has good driver support. Last few times a MS GPU driver update got through, it borked FAH and had to be uninstalled.
