Total Time: 10 minutes

Download NVCleaninstall

Launch NVCleanstall


Launch NVCleanstall and wait for the application to find the latest driver from NVIDIA.
Click Next to proceed to the next step
(Using optimized GPU drivers will not only limit the amount of telemetry sent back to NVIDIA but will also remove the need to create an account for future updates.)

Driver components

graphical user interface, text, application, Word

Select only the essential components to install with the package.
Click Next, the application will now prepare the driver installation without unnecessary bloatware.
(Our recommendation is to select only the Display Driver unless you rely on ShadowPlay to record your gameplay.)

Installation tweaks

graphical user interface, text, application, email

Check all the boxes except “Add Hardware Support” (which is only for older laptops etc with limited driver support).
Click Next.
("Disable NVIDIA HD Audio device sleep timer” will throw an error during installation due to the HDMI Audio driver not being installed – You can simply ignore this.)

Finish installation

graphical user interface, text

Wait for the installation to create a customized driver package based on your configuration. Once unpacked the NVIDIA drivers will install automatically.

Wait for the installation to finish


Keep this window open until the installer has finished.

Restart the PC

Wait for the PC to restart and once you are back in windows you are ready to configure the NVIDIA Control Panel to further improve the gaming performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is NVCleanstall?

NVCleanstall is a software utility that enables the user to cleanly reinstall the NVIDIA drivers on their system.

This is useful if you are having issues with your current drivers, or if you want to install a fresh copy of the drivers with best performance.

Can it enhance my gaming experience?

NvCleanstall removes unnecessary bloat from NVIDIA's GeForce Driver, and adds advanced tweaks for improved Input-lag.

Using optimized GPU drivers will not only limit the amount of telemetry sent back to Nvidia but will also remove the need to log in using an Nvidia account.

What is Multiplane Overlay (MPO?)

Multiplane Overlay (MPO) is a feature of Windows display adapter that enables multiple framebuffers to be composited by the display controller hardware.
This can reduce the workload of the GPU and CPU, as well as the latency of displaying the content.
MPO can also allow for independent page flips of different planes, which can improve the performance and responsiveness of Windows applications.
However, MPO can also cause some issues with certain graphics drivers, such as AMD, and may require disabling for optimal stability.

What is Message Signaled Interrupts?

Message signaled interrupts (MSI) are a way of signaling an interrupt without using a dedicated pin. Instead, devices that use MSI write a value to a specific memory address to trigger an interrupt.

This method has some advantages over pin-based interrupts, such as reducing the number of pins, increasing the number of possible interrupts, and avoiding race conditions with memory writes. MSI is supported by PCI bus since version 2.2 and by PCI Express bus.

What is NVIDIA HD Audio Device Sleep Timer?

Nvidia HD Audio Device is a driver that allows your computer to communicate with the audio hardware on your Nvidia graphics card. It can also enable features such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for immersive sound.

The sleep timer is a setting that lets you specify how long the audio device should remain active before going into power-saving mode. You can adjust the sleep timer in the Nvidia Control Panel under Manage 3D Settings > Power Management Mode.

What is HDCP?

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. It is a form of digital copy protection that prevents unauthorized copying of audio and video content.

HDCP is used by devices such as Blu-ray players, game consoles, streaming services and HDMI cables to ensure that only authorized devices can receive and display the content.

What is NVENC Video Encoding Session Limit?

NVENC video encoding session limit is the maximum number of concurrent video encoding sessions that can be performed by the NVENC hardware encoder on a NVIDIA graphics card.

The session limit depends on the model and generation of the graphics card, and it can range from 2 to 32 sessions per card. If the session limit is reached, any additional encoding requests will fail with an error code.

Is Nvcleanstall safe?

When used correctly, nvcleanstall is a safe utility. However, improper use might lead to instability.


NVCleanstall provides users with advanced customization options, allowing them to select exactly which components they want to install with their graphics drivers. This level of control can be especially useful for gamers and professionals who may have specific hardware requirements or preferences. Additionally, NVCleanstall is regularly updated to support the latest Nvidia driver releases, ensuring that users can take advantage of all the latest features and performance improvements.
