Should i install drivers fo NVIDIA Geforce MX150 from acer website or NVIDIA website?

The driver from acer has been causing "Bad pool header" from a while and i've disabled it from device manager to stop that. Will the driver from NVIDIA solve that?

    Open Control Panel. Search 'restore point'. Click 'create a restore point' in the left pane. Click 'system restore' button. Click 'next'. Restore the system from the latest automatic Win10 update restore point that caused the problems. Wait till a future automatic Win10 update seems to fix the issue. If it happens again, we can try to temporarily block the offending update. Jack E/NJ

    I think I will have to wait for next windows update. I reinstalled windows 10 pro with the latest update so restore point isn't an option. I've disabled the NVIDIA driver from control panel and since then there is no error. Why do you think the error happened?

    I mean that there were no "Bad pool header" error before the latest commutative updates.

    Did you do an image backup or save the earlier pro installation media before you re-installed with the new media? Jack E/NJ

    Awww! How about downloading and trying iobit's DriverBooster freeware to see if it'll pick up something better? https://www.iobit.com/en/driver-booster.php Jack E/NJ
