gtx 1060 PPD low

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

Here is a link to tell us enough to make informed guesses viewtopic.php?f=24&t=26036

As an uninformed guess, have you obtained a passkey and done 10 WUs with it? http://folding.stanford.edu/support/faq/points/passkey/

I am getting about 150,000 PPD with a GTX 1050ti.

I know what my problem is, my driver version is 376.54 and I know I need to downgrade to 372.90 for better PPD. And every time I downgraded it, the ppd went up to 32-33W, but during the WU the nvidia driver will automatically upgrade back to 376.54 which cause the WU to failed. I am asking is there any way to keep my driver in that old version? thanks

Is there any chance you have Geforce Experience installed? I am not aware of the driver updating on it's own. The current version is 385.12 https://www.geforce.com/drivers

I am guessing blind, as you did not provide a log as requested.

Geforce Experience ... or Windows 10 ... will automatically upgrade your drivers.
