Bandicam Not Opening In Windows 10: The Main Reason

The main reason behind 'bandicam won't open' is related to desktop or laptop computers that have a dedicated Nvidia graphics chip. If you have installed Nvidia GPU drivers along with the GeForce experience (Nvidia game optimizer) software then it will create a conflict between GeForce experience and Bandicam. This is the main reason why Bandicam won't open or even start on Windows 10 computer which has Nvidia next GPU.

Bandicam Not Opening In Windows 10: How To Fix?

  • Uninstall your Nvidia GPU drivers and restart the PC.
  • Now open Bandicam to check whether it is opening or not.
  • If it opens and you are able to record the screen then the problem has been fixed.
  • If it still doesn't work then uninstall Visual C++ redistributable packages from your computer by going to 'Control Panel>All Control Panel Items>Programs and Features'.
  • Now this time Bandicam will run definitely. The problem has been fixed.
  • Now you just have to download and install Nvidia GPU drivers.

How to Download and Install Correct Nvidia Driver

  • From the 'Product Type' select your Nvidia GPU type.
  • Then select the 'Product Series'. Suppose if I am downloading drivers for GeForce 900 series then I will select GeForce 900. I won't be selecting GeForce 900M because it is for notebooks. So select the right product series, because 900 and 900M series have a different number of Nvidia GPUs. 
  • Then in 'Product' select the right Nvidia chip.
  • Click 'Operating System'. A list will open and then click 'Show all Operating Systems'. This will show 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Select the right operating system architecture.
  • Select the language if you want to change it from English. Then click 'SEARCH'.
  • A download page will open. Click 'Download' to start downloading the driver.
  • Once the driver gets downloaded open it and it will ask you to extract the driver files. Extract the files in C:\ drive.
  • Now right click on 'This PC' and select 'Properties'. Then open 'Device Manager'. Here look for a device without any driver. The Nvidia GPU may be listed as '3D Video Controller'.
  • Right click on it and select 'Update driver'. Then click 'Browse my computer for driver software'.
  • Now click 'Browse' and select this directory below.
  • Here do note that the 388.31 is the driver version and may be different if you have an older or a new Nvidia driver software package. Change this number with your Nvidia graphics software driver version which you have downloaded.
  • After selecting the directory click 'Next'. Wait till Windows 10 finish installing the Nvidia display driver.
  • You will be notified when the installation gets completed. It will take some time to install though.

Now you can use Bandicam and Nvidia gaming graphics without any conflict. So we have successfully fixed the problem of Bandicam not opening in Windows 10.
