Nvidia 397.55 hotfix released, fixes removal of driver after PC is left idle

Nvidia has released a hotfix for their latest driver 397.31. Namely, this driver did not perform very good, since after leaving the PC in idle status for an extended period, the driver would be removed.

Among other things the hotfix also deals with some other issues regarding GTX 1060 GPUs. It fixes the device manager error code 43 on some 1060 models. Below you can find all of the hotfix notes and the download link:

his is GeForce Hot Fix driver version 397.55 that addresses the following:

  • After driver installation, Device Manager may report Code 43 error on a few GTX 1060 cards models.
  • Netflix playback may occasionally stutter.
  • Added support for Microsoft Surface Book notebooks.
  • Windows 10: Driver may get removed after PC has been left idle for an extended period.
