    OK guys,

    This is VERY annoying and I've had this problem for the past year and no matter what drivers I upgrade to, the same problem comes up. This has transferred over to my SECOND build so I'm pretty sure it's not hardware related. Here is what I want to do:

    - Simply right click on the desktop and left click on Nvidia Control panel to bring it up

    HERE IS WHAT'S HAPPENING:

    - Nvidia control panel does not *appear*

    I say *appear* because if I go to task manager it's in there as a process but it will not show up.

    THE CULPRIT:

    - NVIDIA User Experience Driver Component

    Every time I END TASK on "NVIDIA User Experience Driver Component" the Nvidia control panel comes up but it crashes so I have to end task on it and then right click on the desktop to bring it up again.

    As long as I END TASK on "NVIDIA User Experience Driver Component", Nvidia control panel appears. So I figure I'll just delete the "NVIDIA User Experience Driver Component" file (nvxdsync.exe) right???...... WRONG! If I do this, Nvidia control panel won't come up at all and I have to reinstall the drivers to get it back.

    So I thought, "maybe it's another program in the background".

    I disabled a bunch of other things in the task manager that I thought may be interfering with Nvidia control panel but no matter what I END TASKED, Nvidia control panel will not come up. The only thing that will work is if I end task on "NVIDIA User Experience Driver Component"

    I've searched everywhere on google and this forum to see if anyone has a solution and so far I've come up dry... does anyone know how I can fix this?

    Cheers and thanks

    Well that's the thing dude. I can reformat and reinstall till I'm blue in the face and bald but it keeps coming back.... Since this has carried over from my last build, the only constant factor here is the fact that I'm using the same vid cards I was using from the previous build so his may be it BUT, it still happens even if I disable SLI

    I just tried flipping the SLI bridge and the problem remains.
