    NVIDIA no longer support GeForce GPU anymore since April 2018, So the latest version that you can use is v391.35 (If you're using GPU that's marked as GEFORCE or GT, GTX, GTS, MX on your card). So your system maybe got BSOD sometimes when the GPU conflicts within the usage. BEWARE!!!

    This constant updating of NVIDIA is getting weird. For me, it loses credibility. Like Google Chrome
