Nvidia 441.41 Driver - possible Issue X11

Recommended Posts

Hi, just wondering if anyone else is seeing the disappearing Icon in the Drawing Area with the latest Nvidia Driver in X11, it has happen twice today already,so I may need to go back to the 436 Series Driver which I had no issues with.


This was also an Issue with X11 back with the 388-396 Series Drivers when 382.05 was the best driver to go back too but I have not seen it since 400 Series Driver came out.

Thanks for the reply Perry , it maybe the the Plan I was in this morning cause it as it was repeatable every time I tried to break a Wall.


No issues getting to the Toolbars etc , but the Cursor vanished in the Drawing window once I hit the Wall break Tool , which required a Reboot to clear up.


I thought 441.41 was the latest but have just discovered they released 441.66 this morning , so am going to give it a go.....

It wasn't a Plan Issue as it was the same issue in a few plans . I am not sure if it was related to the Windows 10 Updates which also installed today or something else but with 441.66 everything seems to be fine again now. (Link Above) The was only a week between these two Drivers so I suspect something was up with 441.41 as it was replaced so quickly.

      How to change NVIDIA Optimus graphics settings
      July 2021.
      Windows 10 also has it own settings now and Chief has now made a KB article about how to set that up too.
      Dec. 2020 :  Window's 10 also now has a some built in control of what graphics processor is used but this is my preferred method....
      It maybe worth updating your Intel Drivers ( download the Intel Driver and Support Assistant )  as well but in general
      this is an issue of the Nvidia (NV) Discrete Graphics Card not being used by Chief in your Laptop , and some Desktops.
      Many laptops ( and some Desktops ) come with both an Intel UHD Graphics Card and a Discrete Videocard Card
      eg a Nvidia Geforce GTX or RTX  (or AMD Radeon), which is the Card, Chief should be using especially in 3D Windows.
      The Issue lies in that Chief is not "seen" as a 3D Game by Nvidia's Driver,(NV), so the switch may not always happen automatically,
      so we need to ADD Chief to the Nvidia Control Panel 3D Manage Page , and set the Nvidia card to be always used when Chief is Open
      ie: make it the  "Preferred Graphics Processor" ,            this will likely need resetting EACH time the Driver is updated.....
                                                        Desktop NV CP  1                                                                                        Desktop NV CP  2  
                                                ( Chief already added to list )                                                                        How to add Chief to the "List"
      General Laptop "everything uses" NV Card Setting                                                              Laptop Chief NV CP Settings
      ( I recommend this  only if plugged in to AC ) 
                              This mode will use a lot of your battery quickly                           Once set don't forget to set the Options ie No# 7 and 8 above in Desktop pic 2 too.

      I recently had a new desktop built. My video card is a Nvidia GTX 1070. It is an 8GB card. when I look at my message log it says I only have 4GB of ram.

                  OpenGL Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation

                  OpenGL Renderer: GeForce GTX 1070/PCIe/SSE2

                  OpenGL Version: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 384.76

                  OpenGL VRam: 4095

                  OpenGL GPU Count: 1

                  OpenGL GPU VRam: 4095

                  OpenGL GPU Driver Name: nvoglv64

                  OpenGL GPU Driver Date: 6-27-2017

                  OpenGL GPU Driver Version:

                  OpenGL GPU Model: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

                  OpenGL GPU Device Path: pci\ven_10de&dev_1b81

      Here is my system.

      Windows 10 Pro

      Intel Core i7-6900K

      Nvidia GTX 1070

      Crucial MX300 275GB SSD

      Crucial 4X4GB DDR4 2400 RAM

      Anyone have a similar issue? I have Chief X8 and X9 on this system. The message log in both programs say the same thing. If anyone is running Windows 10 Pro with an 8GB card can they have a look at their message log and tell me if you are getting a similar message? This could just be a logging issue.
