Arc & Northernsoul55 , thanks very much for your advice. It has really helped. I will install a game or two in the next few days and if all is well, I will mark the threads as solved.

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 64-bit

The display driver that we need is c:\windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys ..... and as it is intact there, better you dont panic :)

Those leftovers will not cause any further issue. Even if they cause, we are here to take a look.

Now run the computer normally. Observe how it is working. Let us know. :)
