BSOD after latest NVIDIA drivers

Pavilion BC200NH
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I like to play newer games on my laptop, and I find the GTX 1050M more than enough for some casual gaming. But the problem is, that whenever I try to install the latest NVIDIA drivers, several games (doesn't matter if they are new or older games) crash out immediately or a minute after launching with BSOD. Last time I installed COD: Warzone, downloaded the latest NVIDA driver, because a brand new game requires optimizations, but ended up getting BSOD-d again, not only with that specific game, but with League of Legends and Battlefield 4 as well.


Previously, like a year ago, I used to get these using the lastest NVIDIA drivers, however BSOD didn't occur every time, it happened every few weeks, it was very random.


The only solution is to install the driver which is on the HP driver website (2018.01), which is 2 years old! If I use that one, no problem seems to appear.

What can I do? I lose performance, because I cannot install new drivers!
Windows reinstall doesn't solve the problem, I tried it already... (I only use original, licensed OS, games, software)

BSOD after latest NVIDIA drivers



I reviewed your post and I understand that you are getting BSOD after installing the latest Nvidia drivers for your graphics card.


As you have mentioned that the computer works fine with the HP supplies driver that confirms that the issue is with the driver you are installing.


I recommend you download and install the HP support assistant from the below link and it will automatically download and install all the latest drivers available for your computer.


Here is how it is done.


Download link: Click Here


  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

  6. Perform any other update management actions as needed.

    • Postpone an update: Click Remind me, and then select a time preference.

    • Delete an available update: Click the Delete icon  to remove the update from the list and record it in the action log.

    • Review updates status: Click Action log below the list to view installed, postponed, or deleted updates.

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
