Windows 7: Geforce Experience

19 May 2015   #1

Geforce Experience

I installed the geforce experience application, and it was working after installation. But, when I am trying to launch the application, it launches and I can see the geforce logo and I can see that it is loading, but after that, nothing happens.

Uninstall it then reinstall it. GeForce Experience causes nothing but trouble for some people.

I have reinstalled many times, and geforce experience works after a fresh install, but it always stop working again sooner or later.

See the link above my signature to Fill in your system spec's,
Include your antivirus and any other third party scanners you use,

The only issue I've seen from the utility is it ignores my task bar and opens behind it so I have to minimize the task bar to save changes...
I have since gotten rid of it and just use windows update drivers because this is not a gaming computer anyway so I don't need it.

It's never worked reliably for me, I don't even bother installing it anymore.

Now that`s odd, I`ve never had an issue with it.

Try again, nvidia just came out with ANOTHER driver 352.86

But the program itself is really not needed.

Thank you AddRAM I did not notice the update.

Problem free for me as well.
I do disable Nvidia Streamer Service though as it causes errors in Event Viewer.

Dynanten, are you checking the Services for Nvidia Services? Default they are automatic and started. (All start with NVIDIA ...)

I have a bad "experience" with the program too. When I fix an error, another one pops up, and so on.

If you really want to update a driver, do it manually.

I see the following nvidia services in msconfig:

nvidia geforce experience service
nvidia network service
nvidia streamer service
nvidia display driver service

all of them are checked

why do i need so many services just to run a single program?

when i click on geforce experience, the loading bar pops up, with the geforce logo, and after that, nothing happens.

The streamer service is if you want to stream to other devices in your house ( don`t quote me though ) you can turn that off.

Download the latest nvidia drivers and do a custom clean install, and this time uncheck Geforce Experience so it doesn`t install.

Can a GeForce GTX 560 TI use GeForce Experience Shadowplay?
As said in the title, i'm wondering if the GTX 560 TI can use Shadowplay. I am on a budget and I don't want to waste $180 on a capture card with the same quality. Hope it will work (PS: if it will work, will I lose performance and quality?)
