    Nividia GeForce GTX 1060 with driver 391.01 doesn't give OpenGL past 1.1?

    Hello,
    I have an Nvidia GTX 1060 and I've updated my drivers to the latest version they offer (as of this post), but I cannot seem to get an OpenGL version other than 1.1. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, as I'm using the "GeForce Experience" application from the Nvidia website to update my drivers and the version number matches the one on their website. To view the version of OpenGL, i am using OpenGL Extensions viewer 5.0.

    I am aware that OpenGL is not a software, but rather a specification that drivers that 'support' it follow, but if updating drivers doesn't work, do I have any other options?

    A picture of my predicament:

    Any help will be appreciated!

    Did you try a clean install of the NVidia driver (it's a checkbox in the installer IIRC)?

    Also, you might try:

    No problem! Like you probably, I virtually never do a clean install, so it's easy to forget about.
