GeForce Experience Stuck at Preparing to Install

Try updating with the installer downloaded directly from NVIDIA's website instead of through GForce experience.

 

Edit: spelling.

I got the notification that new drivers (416.16) were available through GeForce Experience. I downloaded the driver and chose custom installation and it is stuck at the GeForce Game Ready Driver Preparing to Install screen and it keeps doing this and I restarted my PC and tried it again and it did the same thing again.

Specs

Windows 10 64bit

i5-6600K stock

EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB SuperSC ACX 2.0+

16gb of ram

750w EVGA SuperNOVA NEX psu

Asus Z170-A

BIOS Version 3504

Should I uninstall GeForce experience and try manually installing drivers? And also anyone else had this issue?

Have you tried Express instead of custom? Just curious


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

Does it matter where I install it?
