Nvidia is a brand that is not new to anyone. It has repeatedly produced an assembly of graphics cards like the GTX 20XX and 30XX series. It is also popular for other display and hardware-related software and products. Drivers are the system software that ensures the correct sync of the operating system with the products. Today, we will discuss the Declarative Componentized Hardware (DCH) drivers. Also, we will help you to install the Non-DCH drivers for Nvidia as well.
DCH drivers are already available with the Windows package. However, it has been noted that the Non-DCH counterparts of certain drivers work much better. Unfortunately, if you try to search for it on the Nvidia website, nothing would turn up.
How to get Non-DCH drivers for Nvidia
- Go to the link given here – Nvidia Website Link
- Enter the details of the product for which you are searching the driver.
- In the Windows Driver Type option, select standard.
- Now, click on the preferred driver from the list.
- Click on the download button to download the driver.
- Install the driver as always.
After installing, restart your PC to use the new drivers. For some users, the display drivers might not switch over to the Non-DCH drivers. In that case, you have to download a third-party software called the Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU).
You have to follow a couple of steps to use DDU correctly.
- After downloading the zip folder, extract the folder in a convenient location.
- Now, open the folder and run the DDU.exe as an administrator.
- After a couple of windows, it will display the list of drivers that you can uninstall.
- Ensure that the DCH drivers options are checked.
- Click on Close and then reboot the computer in safe mode.
- To reboot in safe mode, type msconfig in the windows search bar.
- Then, under the Boot tab, enable safe boot and check the option for minimal.
This method will help you to get rid of the DCH drivers and use the Non-DCH drivers instead. For the detailed steps for the same, you should watch the YouTube video of TroubleChute for the same.
