  4. Create a local user account
  5. Install an Older version

You will need an admin account to execute these suggestions.

1] Install the latest version of GeForce Experience


The easiest thing to do is always to check if there is an update or to download the newest version of the software and install it. You should be able to fix an issue caused by an outdated version with this. The service should be restarted.

2] Restart NVIDIA Services


  • Press Win + R to open the Run prompt
  • Type services.msc and then press Enter
  • Look for services that begin with NVIDIA
  • Click on them and select Restart. Do this for all the services.

If the option is not present, stop and try again. If the problem was caused by a service or a dependent service not running as expected, this should help you fix it.

3] Use Local Account for NVIDIA Services


There is an NVIDIA LocalSystem Container service that needs to be run under the Local System Account for security purposes. However, if it is set to run using your account, then it can be a problem.

  • To open the search function using Windows, type in “services.msc” and click to launch when it appears.
  • Find the NVIDIA Services and double-click on the NVIDIA LocalSystem Container.
  • Under the Log On tab, select Local System Account instead of any other account, including your own.
  • Click Apply and then on the OK button to close.

If the issue persists, try launching the GeForce Experience. If that doesn’t work, try repeating the same steps for all the NVIDIA services.

4] Create a Local Account

If you can’t fix the problem any other way, you can try creating another local administrator account and testing with that. It’s better than reinstalling Windows, and you can follow this guide to do it.

Log in to your account and install the latest version of NVIDIA GeForce Experience. Try launching the software and playing some games to see if there are any issues. If everything appears to be working properly, there may be an issue with your user account.

There are a few ways you can migrate everything to your new local account- either by using software or manually, whichever works better for you. Once you’re done, you can choose to keep the old account as a backup for a while, and then delete it after some time.

5] Install an Older version

If the current driver is not working well, you can install an older version. Some OEMs offer a way to download older drivers; else you can use a third-party driver downloading software.

I hope the post was helpful, and you were able to get rid of the NVIDIA GeForce Experience error code 0x0001 on Windows 11.

What is a Local System Account in Windows?

This is an account that is created by the service control manager and has a lot of privileges on the local computer. It is best not to use this account unless you have no other option. This should only be used if you have a clear understanding of what you are doing. Do not use this elsewhere on the PC.

What is GeForce Experience?

At its core, NVIDIA GeForce Experience is a driver updater tool. However, NVIDIA has evolved it to deliver game-specific customization and deliver regular updates. You get access to in-game optical settings and NVIDIA calls these experiences Game Ready Driver, which offers enhancements such as DLSS, Reflex, and more.
