How to fix NVIDIA Driver bugs in Windows 10 May 2020 update?


Here is how you can fix NVIDIA Driver bugs that are caused on Windows 10 May 2020 aka 2004 update?

As you all know Microsoft released its new Windows 10 May 2020 aka 2004 update back on 27th May, which shipped with a number of bugs. The users that updated their Windows 10 to the latest update faced bugs like NVIDIA driver errors, unusual system restarts, breaking printer ports, breaking storage spaces, and many. However, the company has managed to solve the bugs on after another, but the NVIDIA driver bug with the new patch did not solve the errors for many users.

Are you facing the NVIDIA driver issue? Well, nothing to worry about. The bug on the new update was faced because of old drivers that were running on some devices, Windows 10 version 2004 wasn’t published on Windows Update.

Eventually, yes the users only needed to update the NVIDIA drivers from its official site which has fixed all the issues caused by the users after updating their Windows 10 to May 2020 aka 2004 update. Earlier, Microsoft explained that trying to upgrade to Windows 10 May 2020 Update with a driver version older than 358.00 could lead to a fatal crash on Windows 10 devices.

“Nvidia and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues with certain versions of Nvidia display adapter drivers and Windows 10, version 2004 (the Windows 10 May 2020 Update). Windows 10 devices with affected Nvidia display driver versions might receive a stop error with a blue screen or other issues during or after installing the update to Windows 10, version 2004. The affected drivers are any version lower than 358.00,” Microsoft

Now NVIDIA has finally published the new drivers on its official website which solves this issue. You can also get redirected to the download page from here. However, as the bug still states “Mitigated”, Microsoft will solve and release the fix in its next Patch Tuesday cycle, at which point Microsoft can safely remove the upgrade block for everyone and begin shipping the May update to more devices.

“Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimate a solution will be available in mid-August. We recommend that you do not attempt to manually update using the Update now button or the Media Creation Tool until the safeguard is removed,” the company says
