Nvidia has released a. firmware update tool for its new GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080 GPUs to fix a bug that could break display output, causing the GPU to present a clean screen when being used with out drivers put in. The situation only impacts “certain motherboards,” and Nvidia says it “should only be applied if clean screens are occurring on boot”. (We put in it on an RTX 4080 Founders Edition in an Asus motherboard that was working usually and didn’t realize any opposed effects)

Obviously,. you aren’t procuring a GPU to use it with no drivers put in. But if you’re adjusting BIOS settings, performing a fresh Windows install, or booting up for the first time after installing a new GPU, you need your GPU to be capable to draw a primary graphic with out having drivers loaded. The problem doesn’t impact everyone, however if you realize a clean screen when you first boot your machine after installing an RTX 4090 or 4080, this firmware update could fix your problem

If. the bug is stopping you from installing the firmware update in the first place, Nvidia recommends connecting “using an alternate graphics source” like an integrated GPU or secondary GPU, or enabling your system to sit with a clean screen until eventually it can set up a driver on its own; Windows Update can ordinarily seize a useful driver for most GPUs by itself, though you’ll desire to download and set up the newest version to take virtue of new fixes and optimizations. The update can be applied to Founders Edition cards from Nvidia or any RTX 4090 or 4080 made by Nvidia’s partners
