    The fix was mentioned for a GPU with drivers and software, you can't disable what is removed.

    Furthermore, the cause of the latest crash is due to unloaded (not having installed) the nvidia video driver.

    From where exactly are you trying to install the drivers? I assume the manufacturer?

    Please read and run driver verifier | Sevenforums.
    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.
    Besides of nvidia, some windows drivers are also mentioned, but that could mean there is another driver giving problems.
    In order to get the driver, we need to stress it out, done via driver verifier. If driver verifier finds a violation the pc will crash.
    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.
