There are always problems of NVIDIA installer failed when we install NVIDIA graphics driver manually. Such as "why does it always remind me of NVIDIA installer failed when I update the graphics card? How can I solve it? My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M." 

How to uninstall Nvidia graphics drivers from your computer? Here are 5 ways to remove drivers from Windows 10.

"How can I deal with the problem of NVIDIA installer failed of NVIDIA graphics drivers? My graphics card is GTX 650 Ti, and I haven't updated my drivers for a long time. But I heard that the effect of playing Grand Theft Auto V with new drivers can be pretty good, so I decide to have a try. However, after choosing custom update and deleting those old drivers, I have been failing to install any drivers, including the one I want to update. Have tried to check hardware ID and change inf files, I can only find out GTX 650 Ti in nv_dispi.inf files, but still useless. I have also tried to delete NVIDIA graphics drivers, effortless neither, even some old drivers in my computer can't be installed. I have no idea how to do right now, should I reinstall my computer system? But it's too troublesome and I have some important files in my disks."


"My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G. I have downloaded corresponding drivers online, but there is an error after running the program: You appear to be running an X server: please exit X before installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVERS in the README available."


A number of NVIDIA graphics card users have faced a problem of "Nvidia installer failed", sometimes it even caused the inefficiency of the original drivers, influencing their normal use. "I happened to download a driver beta installation and I used to use the version of 327.23. Unluckily, it failed to install and the cleaner deleted the old drivers. Today I have noticed that there is neither NVIDIA graphics drivers in my computer nor NVIDIA control panel with right key, so I delete all relevant files and reinstall. It is still useless, what's worse, it always reminds me to restart my PC, but after the restart, Windows automatic update became in effective. What should I do without any NVIDIA drivers on my computer?"

With Driver Booster, there is no worry about the problem because the it provides us with the latest drivers and relevant Physx software. Others are caused due to wrong installation of Microsoft NET Framework. Although some new graphics card drivers have been inserted NET component installation module, it needs to spend long time on downloading and installing, thus leading to a deadlock in the installation interface. Users regard it as a crash and have to restart the computer, leading to the "Nvidia installer failed".

Therefore, users have to change or add their registration information in the old registry, which is very difficult and hard to success.
