GTX 1060 6 gig and Nvidia driver issues

Aloha, 

 

I could ups use some help with my graphics card and Nvidia drivers. 

 

As the title says I have a GTX 1060 6 gig. It’s been having some issues lately with driver issues. It started a few weeks ago when it tried to update the drivers but came up with an error. It said their might not be enough space, or the download is corrupted. I tried it again and again after restarting. Same issue. I let it be for now because I could still play games just fine. 

 

Then it tried to download the latest Nvidia drivers. 417 I think. It actually downloaded and installed. It showed the little screen with what was installed. It said 2D drivers completed, another one completed, but 3D, Physix, and another one all failed. I started up Rise of the Tomb Raider and was getting 1 FPS. I looked around and it looked like a failed driver so I went into safe mode and ran DDU to uninstall Nvidia drivers to reinstall them in safe mode. Then I got An Unknown Error Occured. I checked Device Manager and it has an error by my 1060 with Code 19. It also says that the registry might be missing or incomplete. 

 

Ive tried many different things and don’t know if it’s a hardware issue with a damaged GPU, if it’s a windows thing and I need to format and reinstall, or what it could be. 

 

I would greatly appreciate any help.

Might be the PCIe slot which has problem, check it with other graphics card to confirm it and otherwise, put your graphics card on other PC.

I don’t have another PC or Graphic card to test it with. I can try another slot though.

Was able to fix it. Talked with my IT friend and he suggested using CCleaner. It fixed the Unknown Error Issue. Then GeForce experiences said Hey this temp file already exists. So, I deleted it out of the appdata, and it installed and works perfectly.
