No worries! you are not the only one, and this is how you might be able to fix it...

At some point, something went wrong between Nvidia and the BetaFlight... It turned up that the people running Windows 10 64bit version are having problems with those two colliding with each other. As the result, the Betaflight Configurator is bearly able to run. The good news, however, is that the fix is actually really simple.

  1. Right-Click on the Betaflight shortcut that is  lying somewhere your desktop, and select "Properties"
  2. In the tab, "Shortcut" locate the line called "Target" this is the path to your application... Just add space followed by --disable-gpu
    You might have to play around with it in case, it doesn't work straight away. Just add or remove space between the tag and the path... And in the end, you should see something like this:

  3. Click "Apply" and it is all done!

OK! So what did just happen?

This extra bit at the end of the path to the application executable file is a so-called parameter. The parameter that, in this case, tels the application not to use a graphics processing unit (GPU) for the purposes of the betaflight.exe application. Simple? Good!
