I am trouble with my Predator 17 G5-793 laptop, it seems that installing the latest Nvidia drivers causes my laptop to restart by itself. I cannot determine under what circumstances the restart occurs but I suspect that it happens when the laptop tries to enter sleep or hibernate mode. I have contacted Nvidia and they suggested that I update the BIOS and Intel chipset. The Bios update worked successfully but launching the Intel chipset update just results in the Windows 10 prompt asking me if I want to run the app but nothing happens after I click proceed/yes/etc.
I had previously contacted Microsoft and they uninstalled the latest Nvidia update and that seemed to resolve the problem a couple of months ago.
Recently, Nvidia again prompted me to update to the latest drivers, which I did and the problems started to occur once again. If I remove the Nvidia GeForce Experience app and use the default Microsoft default graphics driver, the laptop behaves properly - all programs are left running intact and I can resume where I left off. I even tried to install the previous version of the Nvidia app/driver and that is causing the restart to occur.
Nothing is wrong with the laptop nor the Nvidia drivers, its just frustrating to have to relaunch all my apps if I step away from the laptop for extended periods.
