How to Rollback Your Nvidia Drivers

If you did update the drivers, a simple Rollback of the Driver will fix the map issue instantly. Here’s how to do it:

The Device Manager in Windows is where you manage and update all of your PC’s device drivers. Device Manager also allows you to uninstall and disable devices. If you’re using NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience to control your drivers, using Device Manager to roll back your drivers can be more effective.

  1. To access Device Manager, press the Windows Key and type Device Manager into the search field. Select the top result to launch the application.
