Restarting Existing Nvidia Services

As I stated above, if a necessary Nvidia service is disabled without your information then this may cause some serious error to the installed GeForce experience app.

So, the first thing I would recommend you to do is RESTART most of the important Nvidia Services.

Once again, you can do all this by following these steps given below:

  1. Open Windows, run the dialog box to type Regedit. msc, and open the Windows Services application.
  2. Once that is done, find every Nvidia service listed in the Windows Services application and right-click on all of them to restart the Nvidia service.

Re-Installing Nvidia Components

Not just this post, I have said in multiple posts that an update can either make or break your PC.

So, it is highly likely that a Windows update can easily corrupt the existing GeForce Experience files on your PC.

So, to get rid of the Error code once and for all, I would recommend you re-install existing Nvidia components.

And you can do this by following these steps:

  1. Once again, type in CPL in the windows run dialog box.
  2. This will open up the control panel with the program and features window.
  3. In the list of all the available programs find every Nvidia installations.
  4. Now, one by one uninstall these NVIDIA drivers.
  5. Once done restart your PC, and try to download and install GeForce experience on your PC to see whether this has fixed the error or not.

  1. Press Windows + R  keys together to launch the Run Dialog box.
  2. Type in Services.msc into it and press enter.
  3. In the list of all the Nvidia Services, right-click on Nvidia. Telemetry container service and select properties.
  4. In the properties option, checkmark the allow service to interact with the desktop option.
  5. Once that is done, click on apply then press OK to make sure all the changes are saved successfully.

Update the Nvidia Graphics Driver

Downloading and installing drivers one by one on your PC can be a time-consuming task.

And, normally, you don’t want that.

To be honest, even I skipped that part and instead used third-party software like Driver Booster 8 to update the Nvidia graphics driver automatically into my PC.

Still, if you don’t have trust in third-party applications, you can always head ever to the manufacturer website to download and then install that particular driver manually

Resetting the Network Adapter

Before applying any of the solutions mentioned in this post, the first thing you need to do is CONFIRM that whether the issue is from your end or not.

And you can do this by resetting your internet connection.

Imagine what if the error was only because of your internet connection?

Later, it would be quite shameful to find out about the error you are getting is only because of your one mistake.

Your one mistake of not resetting your internet connection on-time

If you haven’t already done that follow these steps to reset the network adapter.

  1. Once again, open the Run dialog box to type and open CMD with all the necessary administrative rights.
  2. In the command prompt type, type Winsock reset, and press ENTER.
  3. Once done, this will reset your network adapter for the time being.
