[Solved] This Driver can’t release to failure in Windows 10

Camilla Mo, in Others

Every time when you start Windows 10, if you see error message saying “This Driver can’t release to failure”, don’t worry. You can fix it with one of the 3 solutions in this article. You may not have to try them all. Just work your way down until you find the one that works for you.

The cause of the problem is  GIGABYTE utility (APP Center) that came along with GIGABYTE motherboards. To fix the problem, just try these 3 solutions:

Solution 1: Download the Latest version of GIGABYTE  APP Center

Your current GIGABYTE APP Center might not be compatible with Windows 10. So go to GIGABYTE app download page to check and download the latest APP center, then install it on your computer. 

 

Solution 2: Uninstall GIGABYTE APP Center

Go to Programs and Features to uninstall the whole  GIGABYTE APP Center. After that, the problem should resolve. 


Solution 3: Update GIGABYTE drivers

In some cases, problematic GIGABYTE drivers can be the cause. The steps above may resolve it, but if they don’t, try to update the drivers. If you’re not confident playing around with drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

3) Click the Update button to download and install the drivers one by one (you can do this with the FREE version). Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

    Cheers for the help. The gigabyte site can be very confusing as to what drivers/programs are needed but you pointed me in the right direction.

    Thanks for the direct link to the download site. Wish the site would’ve actually directed me to the correct link instead of misdirection after another and another.
    Saved me a ton of time!
