Geforce driver issue

Recommended Posts

I have been having this issue with updating my geforce gt 55m drivers thru the control panel, when I Try and bring up the updater from the control panel to update I get the following error(see picture).

on top of that I have a error message in the event viewer I am positive is related:

The nvUpdatusService service was unable to log on as .\UpdatusUser with the currently configured password due to the following error: Logon failure: the specified account password has expired. To ensure that the service is configured properly, use the Services snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC).

I have no idea how to fix this, any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you

I just did that twice, didn't work the first time, seems they changed the update system in the new drivers. I am curious in the services menu for windows if I can change it's log on options from .\UpdatusUser to local system account, because the issue seems to be expiring passwords.

Yes, I think that might be why I am having the issue, they are moving away from the updater option and using this now. hopefully this stops this error from cropping up.

It all seems to be working now, I will give it a day or 2 and if the issue crops up I will post again.

Thanks for your help.
