    Hello dear users. I found few days ago, that renaming Nvapi64.dll which is file of Nvidia graphich cards, located in System32 folder, in playing games which requires newer driver version, actually helps you, to not get that kind of error. I saw that you cannot use NVIDIA Control Panel & Shadowplay.

    But my main question is:
    -Should I be worried, if anything will ruin my graphich card? In task manager, I saw no difference with renaming, will my card be damaged and is it anything serious? I would like to get some words from Experienced ones :)

    -But I actually managed to play some games after renaming.

    p.s. Don't tell me to update drivers, cuz I don't have any trust in new ones.

    You shouldn't rename files just because you don't want to update the graphics card. Even though you say you don't want to update drivers it is highly recommended that you do.
