NVidia Quadro P3200 Driver: 451.77


VMWare Workstation Pro: 15.5.6 build-16341506

Win10 2004 Guest VM


Ever since updating to Win10 2004 I am getting the VM to hang/freeze.  If the VM doesn’t hang/freeze and I am able to shut it down. Then when I shut down the host I get the BSOD.  Just using the host I don’t get any problems.  I have tried different video driver versions and no change and same problem.


If I turn off Accelerate 3D Graphics in VMWare, I don’t have a problem anymore and it doesn’t freeze and I my host no longer gives me a BSOD when shutting down.
