    So in this specific case the pc freezes and I have to restart in safe mode and use DDU and thus retry, no BSOD

    edit

    I just tried again by installing the drivers only, no physx and hd audio and indeed I have a blue screen with the smiley "no happy"
    I will try other section.
    The inf of blazeghost indicates section 44 I will try another ... :(

    I'm wondering if there isn't a problem with the SG or PEG which can be activated with Fn F7 or BIOS Modded.
    And moreover my battery does not work any more so it is constantly on sector and suddenly it does not pose a problem whatsoever ....
    thank you for your help anyway, i appreciate a lot

    i have installed the 471.68 thought ncvleaninstall+manual step

    - download the drivers manually
    - run nvcleaninstall and select the downloaded driver
    - select the install components: driver, physx and HD audio., click next and wait the unpack
    - select this in the next screen:
    upload_2021-8-19_12-31-58.png
    this option is optional. i do it for avoid problems with games
    upload_2021-8-19_12-32-31.png
    - BEFORE click next, go to the nvcleaninstall temporal directory:
    C:\Users\>you_user<\AppData\Local\Temp\NVCleanstall\Display.Driver
    - if you are familiar with Patch/Git (apply) program, here a patch file:

    if not, do it manually follow steps posted in this thread

    - After the patch applied/add manually the lines, Click NEXT button
    - Perform the installation

    after install. enter in windows with the allowed unsigned drivers boot option (if the driver is not loaded)
