NVIDIA Display Driver 381.65 will not install on Asus notebook.


Our team is actively working to solve this issue and hope to have a fix ready with the next Game Ready driver release. Until then, gamers using a system listed above are encouraged to avoid using 381.65.

If you're not able to set to the full color range you're used to getting with other drivers, then set to "Use NVidia Color Settings" in NVidia Control Panel, then you'll be able to set to full color range.

This will probably be fixed in next driver.
