i followed this:
I got the 3.9 drivers when the help says 3.7, but ppl have been saying that 3.9 is the best to do.
I found the old drivers, extracted it, expanded the .dl_ to a .dll, put it in the C:\program files\blender foundation\blender\ directory (this is the one onmy computer), and ran blender.
well here the problem. only the command window that opens with blender comes up. when i close it, it stops resopnding and requires a force quit, OR if left open itll just quit itself.
i thought i found cure for my slowdown, but now i have this.
thanks for the help.
