My current GeForce Experience Driver is stuck on a Driver from April 2019. I am on a Toshiba Laptop with Windows 10 & the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M. My main problem is I can play Doom 2016 & any other game perfectly but not Doom Eternal as it wont start. Is there any fix for this before I request a refund ?

Do you mean the "Experience" can't download an updated driver?

Check with Nvidia. It's possible they are no longer servicing this Video Card.

This is the nVidia driver for your card for Doom Eternal https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driv...x/158759/en-us

My system is just not compatible with that version no matter what version. I guess I will just get a refund & get it on Consoles thanks for the help everyone

Just to make sure, run the Windows Troubleshooter for System Maintenance and see if it finds a problem

After only a week, a new driver was released today. You might want to give it a try.

Tried it & nadda same error. Someone on Reddit mentioned that Driver updates for the mobile variant of your GPU moved to legacy support last year

Driver support ended on all cards older than the 900 series.

You can try to extract the Display.Driver folder and modify nv_disp.inf. If you are lucky, you may find the only one correct section number reserved for GTX 770M.

You can download Quadro driver 425.31 and 426.50 released for Quadro K2100M. GTX 770M should work with modified 426.50 if you succeed and understand how to install the driver with modified INF file. Then you can try to modify 442.74.

If the only one correct section number reserved for GTX 770M doesn't exist in 442.74, or nvlddmkm.sys blocks and deletes the program codes, you should give up because there is nothing you can do about it.
