Microsoft last week released a new Insider Preview Build with version 16288 for Windows Insiders. The insider build brought a forced installation of GeForce driver v387.68 without being prompted by the users. The forced installation of the driver brought issues with the screens suddenly going dark and chimes for device being removed.
The Driver update also has brought issues with Night Light or F.lux with the users complaining that all whites are really bright with almost halogenic coloring. Since lot of users have been having issues with the forced installation of the driver, there is a small workaround to roll back to the previous driver.
- Press the Start button.
- Type “Device Manager” (without the quotes) and press enter.
- Expand Display adapters.
- Double-click your GPU.
- Click the Driver tab.
- Click Roll Back Driver. There will be a small survey window to fill out, so you can tell Microsoft why you rolled back the driver.
- Be patient, you might get a “Not responding” message.
Once the roll back is completed users should see that the Night Light and f.lux start to work normally as before. If any of our users have been experiencing the Night Light issues after installing the Nvidia Driver, make sure to check the workaround above and let us know if it works, in the comments below.
