how so ?
im using 417.71 no problems...
only, I have to install through GeForce Experience for some reason... they dont install directly frm nvidia site for me anymore...
try the driver before 417.71
i always installed drivers from GF Expirience but this last 417.71 is making some problems like in games like in for honor i usually have around 80fps tho i locked it to 60 but now it happens from time to time to drop down to 30 also in ffxv i already had pretty low fps but i didnt have problem with that now game happen to freze for a few sec then goes back to normal but it happens often and it all started after i updated drivers
check you setting in Nvidia control panel under manage 3d settings
you can add specific programs you want. I set only my games to use max gpu performance, pre rendered frames to 1, highest refresh rate etc. Go through all the setting and read what they do and set things to your liking. Some trial and error will ensue
