NVIDIA Game Ready Driver 526.98 may fail to install on certain PCs using a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.  After the driver installation fails, users may notice the following behaviors:
  • The NVIDIA Control Panel is missing or cannot be opened
  • Users will not not be able to extend their multiple monitors.  
  • The Windows desktop may feel sluggish
We are currently investigating this issue. In the meantime, we recommend GeForce RTX 3060 Ti users roll back to our previous Game Ready Driver v526.86 or NVIDIA Studio Driver v522.30.
