Windows 10 Nvidia Drivers Issue with Skylake

Yesterday I had a morning surprise by my PC, when I turned it on all I got was white pixelated flickering caused by GPU drivers update (automated in windows 10) Safe mode and all of the advanced repair stuff wasn’t working so out of options I just used “Reset my PC”. In order to avoid the issue in the future autoupdate feature was disabled through:

Advanced System Settings –> Hardware Tab –> Device Installation Settings –> Select No

Please note that this is all or nothing solution, there is no granular control what hardware to be updated, so after No you should update all drivers manually.

Remark: Seems that Latest Nvidia Driver (at the writing time) 361.75 fixes the flickering issue, however, it is introducing a new one “Eject GPU”, nice run, isn’t it?

Remark 2: Just found in techpowerup site that a fix for the latest bug was released – 361.82, let’s see does it holds anything else for us 🙂
