    I wouldn't have noticed I didn't have a gpu until I heard my fan spinning hard. Intel graphics has a hard time running a video upscaled to 4k on its own.

    Is there a fix for the nvidia control panel no longer existing?

    You have to install the January or earlier WHQL drivers from the NVIDIA site...

    so do you guys think it's worth updating to the creators update then or should I wait for the Gpu bug to be fixed? I suppose it doesn't matter much anyway since I don't see the update yet but I was thinking about hunting it down manually and giving it a try.

    There were three two creators updates: 1703 & 1709. The 1803 was rumored to be the third creators update but was instead named April 2018 update. I'm confused by your question, you'll have to be more specific.

    In windows update I cannot see 1803, only 1709. I guess I can go on the insider thing and get it there.

    If you want 1803 and running Windows Update doesn't get it you can use the Media Creation Tool.

    I just got it. I'm having the same problem with the 1060 not being recognized too. GDI Microsoft.

    Alright.... I got the graphics card being detected again (in fortnite I see activity on GPU 1) but I'm getting massive frame drops every 10 seconds or so.

    I have the official nvidia driver from microsoft and I'm attempting to install 397.31 from nvidia experience but it keeps saying installation cannot continue. When I install it manually from their site I get "hardware cannot be detected". For whatever reason it looks like nvidia cant see the 1060, and that the windows update definitely broke something since games are currently unplayable.
