You can use Windows built-in utility Device Manager to easily downgrade Nvidia drivers in Windows 10. The second option involves opening up the metro interface. All you need to do is type in ‘control panel’ and click the link that appears.

Also, no need to blacklist nouveau before installing. The only hitch I encountered was when I installed the same driver for a 32 bit OS. It told me that it needed a gcc+ package which I got on my first google. It worked fine with the Noveau driver but I wanted to use the video cards HDMI port and for whatever reason that didn’t work w/my HP w2207h monitor. In this case you will have to install nvidia-prime package too. But if you install from the official repositories, it will be installed automatically.

Updating procedure

To create your backup, right-click on Computer and select Properties. Click on the System Protection item on the left. In the next window, click on System Protection, select Create, and follow the instructions on the screen. That tells the operating system to check for regular Windows Updates and also looks for new drivers.

This will uninstall the latest drivers, and reinstall the previous version. Once you have done this, you can’t then roll back again to an even earlier version. If the rollback option is unavailable, there is a way to uninstall your graphics driver and install an earlier version. NVIDIA graphics driver can be downloaded automatically and manually. However, technical knowledge is required to avoid errors while manually updating drivers. If the Nvidia site doesn’t have a driver for your specific graphics card and macOS version, do not attempt to download and install something that seems close enough.

Step 3: Install Driver Dependencies

Windows device manager supports managing and updating all your computer’s device drivers. Similarly, you will obtain better results if you are using NIVIDIA’s GeForce Experience for managing your drivers. It is mostly required for the proper functioning of hardware devices. Many times these drivers come either with Windows or can be located by accessing Windows Update in Control Panel and can be downloaded from the own NVIDIA support website. In the end, I took a chance on using a previous version of the kernal from the GRUB menu and updated the drivers and resolution from there.

To install the proprietary NVIDIA drivers, open the Software & Updates app from the Application Menu of Ubuntu Desktop 22.04 LTS as marked in the screenshot below. It also acted as an API that allowed application developers to take advantage of the processing power of Nvidia GPUs in their applications. Once your NVIDIA’s driver is updated, you can see the graphics to be working perfectly for Windows. Easy to use and all the communications with the hardware run smoothly with the help of Advanced Driver Updater.
