Tried reinstalling NVIDIA Driver, now it's saying it's not compatible with my version of windows.

Holy shit, that escalated quickly! Can you tell me more?

 

Also, I'm not sure BUT...back when I was trying to get windows to stop updating by force, I got into some problems that I later fixed (mostly) so it could be that. I don't remember this being blank back then though.

 

Yeah, being stuck on 1803 is a problem...something is messed up with your Windows 10 install.

It seems like whatever you did to stop Windows from updating...REALLY stopped it from getting ANY updates.

 

As Microsoft rolls out new versions of Windows 10, there will be a cut-off point for drivers, and you'll need to get your OS up-to-date before you can use the newer drivers.

 

Microsoft is following the Apple MacOS path, where Windows 10 will get revision updates, rather than releasing Windows 11, 12 ... a new Windows ## every 2 or 3 years.

I was trying to reinstall the NVIDIA Driver to get the Control Panel back (it just disappeared) but now it wont let me, saying its not compatible with my version of windows. I used the same installer and haven't changed anything since the last time I installed the driver. I've already tried downloading new installers even from GeForce Experience.

 

I'm using a GTX 1070 with Win10 Pro 64 bit version 10.0.17134 Build 1734.

I'm going to assume you uninstalled the older drivers first?

As suggested above, uninstall the old drivers first, and consider updating Windows (build 17134 is version 1803, and is no longer supported by Microsoft).  It may be that your old version of Windows is now causing a problem.

The good old driver architecture switch to DCH... Remove everything nvidia before installing latest. Might need to use DDU.

I think you have much bigger problems than corrupted nvidia drivers, I think it's time to back up your data, and nuke that OS from orbit, and use a newer version to re-install.

Holy shit, that escalated quickly! Can you tell me more?

 

Also, I'm not sure BUT...back when I was trying to get windows to stop updating by force, I ran into some problems due to my snooping around and changing things, problems that I later fixed (mostly) so it could be that. I didn't really access the update section much so I don't remember seeing it blank.

If the system is so corrupted it won't even show you a a core component of the OS (the update parts) then who knows what else is borked on it?

And as others have said, your OS version is really old and the newer drivers may not install, it's time to upgrade it via the media download tool MS provides, or nuke and start over.
