The error message “NVIDIA Display settings are not accessible” is common and can be caused by a variety of factors. It might be that your display connection is connected to the incorrect port, that you have driver difficulties, or that recent Windows upgrades have messed with your system.
The NVidia control panel will not open while you are experiencing this issue, and you will see the following message: “NVIDIA Display settings are not available” “You are not presently utilizing a display coupled to an NVidia GPU.” We’ll go over each of the various solutions to this issue one by one, starting with the simplest.
Before you begin using any of the techniques listed below, I strongly advise you to download and install all of the most recent Windows updates and restart your computer. The issue “NVIDIA Display settings are not accessible” “You are not presently utilizing a display coupled to an NVidia GPU.” can occasionally be fixed just by doing that.
Solution 1: Make sure your display is connected.
Checking your display connection is the first, most critical, and simplest thing you can do. Make sure your display wire is connected to your Nvidia GPU rather than an integrated motherboard connector. Restart your computer and try accessing the Nvidia control panel again after you’re confident the cable is attached to the correct port.
If the Nvidia control panel still won’t open after restarting your computer, you may try replacing the cable to ensure it isn’t defective (it happens sometimes).
If the problem remains after you’ve double-checked that the cable is in good working order and is attached to the right port, you may try the second approach.
Solution 2: NVidia Control Panel Repair and Reset.
Let’s try to reset and fix the NVidia control panel program before uninstalling and reinstalling NVidia graphics card drivers.
To do so, go to your search box and type “add or uninstall software,” then select the appropriate choice. Click on the little search box and put NVidia into it.
Then select “Advanced settings” from the Nvidia control panel.
Now go to the bottom of the page and look for the two alternatives (Repair and Reset).
After that, hit the repair button, and then the reset button.
Now see if you can enter the NVidia control panel or if the message “NVIDIA Display settings are not available” persists. Please try the following option if you’re still receiving the same issue.
Solution 3: Restart your NVidia GPU after disabling it.
This approach is straightforward yet quite successful. Many people have reported that just removing and reenabling the graphics card from Windows’ device manager fixes the “NVIDIA Display settings are not accessible” issue.
To do so, put “Device Manager” into your browser’s search box and click on it. Look for Display adapters and click on the little arrow; your NVidia graphics card should be listed here.
Right-click it and choose Properties, then go to the Driver tab in the new window.
To re-enable the device, click Disable Device, wait 10 seconds, and then click Enable Device.
Solution 4: Device Manager is used to updating drivers.
Follow the identical procedures as in the third approach, only instead of disabling the device, we’ll update it.
So, go ahead and click Update Driver, and a new window will appear. Select the option to automatically update. If you see a notice stating that you already have the most recent driver installed on your computer, go to the next step. Whether you’ve installed a new driver, restart your computer to see if the problem has been resolved.
Solution 5: NVidia GPU Driver may be manually installed or uninstalled.
The only difference between this and the previous technique is that we will pick and install the driver manually. We’ll stop Windows updates before downloading and installing the NVidia GPU driver since there’s a risk Windows will automatically download and install a driver for your graphics card.
Click on Pause updates for 7 days in Windows Updates.
Navigate to device management as we did in the previous two steps, then to the properties of your graphics card and to the Driver tab. Now click Uninstall Driver and wait for it to finish.
After the procedure is finished, you must download the most recent graphics, card driver. You may either use the GeForce Experience program or manually search for the driver you require.
To get the necessary driver, go to NVidia’s official website, fill out the form with your graphics card model and information, and then click “Start the search.” There will be a list of the most recent graphics card driver available. Download and install the most recent version.
Alternatively, you may download and install the GeForce Experience program, which will automatically locate the most recent driver for your graphics card. All you have to do is click the install button within the program.
Simply restart your computer after installing the newest driver.
Solution 6: Make sure your Intel integrated GPU drivers are up to current.
If you have an integrated Intel graphics card, it’s possible that it’ll conflict with your NVidia graphics cards, resulting in this problem. You’ll need to manually download and install the newest driver for your Intel GPU.
Navigate to Intel’s official website, download, and install the newest driver for your Intel graphics card. Try to open the NVidia control panel after restarting your computer.
It’s a strange approach to repair an NVidia problem, but it works.
