Update (or uninstall):
Gigabyte driver - part of Easy Tune so check updates in program
Bitdefender - check updates in program

Check. Uninstalled both.


Can I install a new anti-virus or should I wait?

I have a similar setup. If you want to use nvme disks, there is a bios update f16d December 2018 for ga-b75m-d3h which enables nvme boot .

If your graphics card is using the pcie 3 slot, nvme disks run ok from the pcie 2 slot. Obviously an nvme to pcie adapter is needed.

Check. What's next?


Also, by Gigabyte driver did you mean to update or uninstall Easy Tune?
Because all I did was uninstall Easy Tune.

Nice, I might take you up on that offer!


How come it's not on the Gigabyte BIOS page?

Yes, I meant to update or uninstall Easy Tune. See if you have the gdrv2.sys driver somewhere in the system, if you have it, remove it

Oh okay.

I found the driver. Do I just shift+delete it?

Apparently it was made as a result of a customer request

I am a big fan of gigabyte.
