[Solved]crashes and performance issues created by GeForce 461.09 for Windows 10

Jan. 16, 2021 / Updated by Bessie Shaw to Windows 10

NVIDIA released the first version of the graphics card driver GeForce 461.09 in 2021. The new version update is not a common game optimization driver, but is based on security enhancements and bug fixes.

Win10 GeForce 461.09.pngSeven known bugs were solved at the same time:

  • GTX 750 Ti has a blue screen, crashes, and the error message is UNEXPECTED KERNEL MODE TRAP.

  • The GTX 1080 Ti desktop flickers.

  • The GTX 1080 Ti system freezes and the screen displays a single color.

  • When three 4K monitors are connected, it becomes a blue screen after sleep resumes, with error code 0x116.

  • The GeForce Experience FPS counter will be accidentally displayed in the Windows mail and calendar programs.

  • Lenovo Y740 notebook displays an error after sleep recovery.

  • The black balance of LG OLED TV is wrong when HDR is turned on.

This version mainly fixes the blue screen, crash, desktop flickering, system freeze and other compatibility issues of old graphics cards such as GTX 750 Ti and GTX 1080 Ti.

However, according to a large number of feedbacks from the Nvidia official forum, GeForce 461.09 will cause the computer's FPS to drop, freezes, performance issues and application crashes. It is unclear whether some of these issues are related to the recently released Windows January 10, 2021 cumulative update.

Currently known issues:

  • Stuttering and frame rate drop

  • Adobe Premiere Pro crashes

  • The screen keeps flickering

I suggest that if the user’s current NVIDIA GPU driver is okay, they can skip this update and wait for the next update. The next update is expected to be launched in February and will have optimizations for games. Unfortunately, there is no obvious workaround for people with problems, but you can always roll back to an older driver version.
