Hey everyone!  I have an Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop and I'm just curious if any of you are having issues installing updated drivers for the Nvidia gtx 1050?

Doesn't matter what I do, Geforce experience will not load it just fails when opening, if I try to uninstall it, it will, but now it won't load at all.  The drivers continuously fail and there's an Nvidia program that will NOT uninstall.  

This is driving me CRAZY.

PLEASE HELP ME LOL.

    Geforce experience causes a lot of problems. Download the latest drivers manually from the link below and don't update drivers from Geforce experience anymore, instead check this link every month for updated drivers. First download and run DDU from the link below to do a clean uninstall of your current Nvidia drivers then install the updated drivers from the Nvidia link below

    Have you tried installing that software driver from Device Manager - Not running the software program?

    i thought i could add a bit more info on this, the currently installed driver is from Nvidia per my device manager, the driver date is 3/18/2019 and the version is 25.21.14.1972..  i cant even find where this driver comes from on the nvidia website.  I was able to use the DDU to get my system cleaned up, this did get rid of my unwanted nvidia physx software that would not uninstall.  However when i try to install the 441 driver it fails.

    Just enter all your GPU details her and download and install the driver it says, don't worry about what number it is
