Error code 0x0001 for NVIDIA GeForce Experience

We will be taking a look at the following fixes to get rid of the error 0x0001 for NVIDIA GeForce Experience on Windows 10. But before you begin, do try rebooting your PC and then launch GeForce Experience and see if it works.

  1. Check the NVIDIA Display Driver Services.
  2. Update your NVIDIA Display Drivers or migrate to the BETA release.
  3. Clean Install and Reinstall the Drivers.

If you create a System Restore point usually, you can undo any modifications on your computer, by performing System Restore. In case, you do not have a habit of creating a System Restore point; I suggest you start doing so because it is a very strong feature that will let you fix your computer in some scenarios.

1] Check the NVIDIA Display Driver Services

You will have to open Windows Services Manager. Start by hitting the WINKEY + R button combination to launch the Run utility. Then type in, services.msc and then hit Enter. It will now launch Services window and will populate a list of services.

Now, look out for the following Services, and ensure that their Startup types are as follows:

  • NVIDIA Display Container LS – Automatic
  • NVIDIA NetworkService Container – Manual
  • NVIDIA LocalSystem Container – Automatic
  • NVIDIA LocalSystem Container – Automatic
  • NVIDIA GeForce Experience Service – Automatic (Delayed Start)
  • NVIDIA Geforce Experience Backend Service – Automatic (Delayed Start)
  • NVIDIA Telemetry Container service – Automatic

Double-click on it to open its Properties box. If the service is not running already, just select Start to start running them else first select Stop and then select Start to restart them.

Check if this fixes your issue.

2] Update your NVIDIA Display Drivers or migrate to the BETA release

One of the main things that you should be doing is updating your NVIDIA Display Drivers. For that, you just need to head to their latest Display Driver Download Website to download the NVIDIA driver.

From the drop-down menus, you need to select the exact model of your Graphics Card. Then upon hitting the Search button, you should be able to see the latest release of the driver for your graphics card. Accept the terms of use and then download the driver. Finally, run the downloaded file to install your latest drivers.

Reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.

But in case you want to try out the beta release, you can find it here. Before moving forward, you must be aware of the fact that beta software is buggy and be unstable causing a number of different bugs but at the same time, will contain some fixes for some bugs in the stable release.

3] Uninstall and Reinstall NVIDIA Drivers

You can use Display Driver Uninstaller to uninstall your NVIDIA Display Driver. After that, you can download & install the latest version of the NVIDIA Graphics Drivers.

Hope this helps!
