Legion Y540 RTX 2060 Nvidia Drivers

2021-04-25, 4:10 AM

I'm trying to update the Nvidia Drivers to the latest drivers. It will successfully update the drivers, but the screen would start to flicker. The version of Nvidia driver that I am currently using is 451.67, any driver version above this will cause the screen to flicker. I am trying to update due to game crashing on Project Wingman and newer games.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and why 451.67 is the only driver that seems to work as well as solutions. I have tried to install the new drivers using clean install as well as using DDU. I would always have to revert back to 451.67 by using DDU.

Hello @GearED,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

It could be because the drivers are written for individual Nvidia cards unlike the ones in Legion machines which have special settings/configurations.

I would suggest trying the driver written specifically for your machine which can be downloaded here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/legion-series/legion-y540-15irh/downloads/driver-list/component?name=Graphics%20Processing%20Units%20%28GPU%29

 

Kindly check if this driver will also give you the same issues.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

Hi thank you for the response, but unfortunately this driver version is 442 which is older than the current 451.67 that I have currently have installed.

Hello @GearED,

 

Sorry for the late reply.


Unfortunately that is correct however this driver is specifically written for the machine.

If you already have 451.67 working good it may be best to stay there until a newer update comes for the GPU.
