NVIDIA Share is not responding or working

To fix this error, we will be considering the following scenarios and will discuss the fixes related to the same:

  1. If you just updated the driver.
  2. If you did not make any changes to the driver.

1] If you just updated the driver

If you happen to have just updated the driver, there might be chances that the new installation did not take place properly or was corrupt.

The incompatibility between the Operating System and the Driver might also give rise to issues like this. So, you can try to Rollback the conflicting driver.

You can also check if there is another update available to your NVIDIA Drivers and check if that fixes your issues.

2] If you did not make any changes to the driver

In case you did not make any changes to the driver, then there might be chances that either your drivers are out of date or you have some issues with your installation.

First, you need to check if your NVIDIA drivers are up to date. If yes, then move to the next step.

Now, we need to disable the NVIDIA Share feature.
