Cause of Nvidia Geforce Experience error code 0x0003

Nvidia Telemetry Restricted Access to Desktop

Some users have reported that their Nvidia Telemetry had no access to the desktop which led to the occurrence of the error. You simply need to allow Telemetry to access your desktop. Sometimes when the Telemetry gets corrupted due to an affliction by a virus, especially malware, the Nvidia Telemetry Container may go missing and that can cause this error.

Faulty GPU Drivers

You need to keep in mind the term faulty drivers means anything under the sun, error, or outdated drivers. It can also mean the driver is corrupted. It can also mean the driver is incompatible with the Windows OS version you are currently using.

Nvidia Services Are Not Able to Run Properly

Nvidia services might not run as expected. Many services run to operate GeForce. These are essential tools that are extracted from the installation file. But they create issues with the running of the program. You need to check if the following services have been started or not, especially in the Task Manager. And these are the services: NVIDIA Display Service, NVIDIA Local System Container, NVIDIA Network Service Container, and other NVIDIA services

Network Adapter Issue

The entries to your Network Adapter may be altercated or might be wrong. You need to reset your network adapter to solve the problem. You can reset your Network the same way it is done in this video.

Windows Updates

You can also get the error while downloading and installing recent windows updates. Windows Updates can be a problem and you can identify if the error occurs after an edit session as your PC completes the update installation. In that case, you can remove the existing GeForce components and proceed with a new installation of the GeForce.

Reinstall a new Graphics driver

This is rather a two-fold solution. You can curb issues if the error has been caused because of a faulty or corrupted driver. You can also resolve the error in case its components get altered by a virus. Sometimes outdated drivers can also become an issue. These are the steps for reinstallation:

  • Right-click on the bottom windows icon or the taskbar. Now from the list of options choose the device manager.

  • Now the device manager window will open, you have to scroll and find the device adapter option.
  • You might have seen that the option expands and you see an option for your currently installed Nvidia GPU driver. Right-click on it and select ‘uninstall driver’. For context, I have the Intel(R) HD Graphics 620 so I will try to show you the steps as per the process, just visualize it as an Nvidia graphics card, and the options and the selection will all be similar.

  • The driver will get uninstalled. Now you have to visit the current driver manufacturer’s website. If it’s intel go to intel and search for the driver.
  • Download and install the driver.
  • Now see if the problem has gotten fixed or not.

Allow the Nvidia Telemetry container to access your system

Nvidia Telemetry container has a lot of data that they accumulate:

  • Type in ‘services’ in the search bar
  • An app ‘services’ appear in the Cortana
  • Click on the app.
  • As soon as the app opens you need to scroll through the names until you find ‘Nvidia Telemetry Container’
  • You have to right-click the option and then click on properties.

  • Now click on the logon option
  • Now click on ‘local system account’
  • Just below the option, you will have an option, “Allow service to interact with desktop” and on the right-hand side a checkbox, select the option
  • First click apply and then click okay.

  • Now you need to relaunch the GeForce Experience app and check if the errors have gotten resolved or not.

Reset Network Adapter

Sometimes network configurations can be faulty and that can lead to issues with GeForce Utility. Incorrect entries into the network adapter is another issue that causes the error. The best fix is to reset the adapter and see if the error happens to remain or not. These are the steps you need to perform:

  • Go to the search bar and type in cmd
  • Cmd will appear and you have to right-click and select run as administrator option.
  • All you need to do is put in this command and press enter: netsh winsock reset

Restart Nvidia services

Now you need to start Nvidia services one by one. Sometimes the Nvidia components can remain dead and you need to start it from the services window. Here are the steps that you need to perform:

  • Press Windows key and R simultaneously
  • As the run window appears type in services.msc and then click ‘ok
  • As the window opens you will find many nvidia services
  • You have to go to the bottom and click on apply first
  • Now click on start in case the service is stopped and then click on ‘ok
  • Once done, venture back and open up the GeForce Experience application and see if the error got resolved.

Try reinstalling the GeForce experience

Another all-encompassing trick is to reinstall the GeForce experience app. You can do it by performing these easy steps:

  • First, you need to access settings, go and right-click on the start icon.

  • Then as the settings window opens you need to open the Apps page, you can see the Apps option in the settings window.

  • As the ‘Apps and Features’ window opens select Nvidia Geforce Experience, right click on the option present on the right side of the page. Right-click and then select ‘uninstall’
  • As the uninstall has been performed, now reinstall the entire software again
  • Check if the new reinstallation copy made any difference.

I loved this fix since this fix is a one fit for all fixes. Sometimes when we try to look up from a utility and component basis to search for corruption or damage caused to any service, it can get complicated. The best fix is to reinstall the application or reinstall the driver that checks out all the possible anomalies in the file and makes it a smooth-running app.
