Causes to this error
There’s in most cases a single source to all that trouble – driver problem!
Many Nvoglnt.dll error messages usually popup whenever your Nvidia graphic card’s driver or other drivers related to your graphic card are either incompatible/obsolete/corrupt.
How to repair this error?
Since the problem is with your Nvidia graphic card’s driver or with one of its related drivers, you need to detect and replace that driver with a fresh, official, and compatible driver.
Now, how do you know which driver(s) makes you all that trouble..?
How can you tell which is the EXACT compatible driver version required for your hardware…?
Here is a little trick I’m using whenever I bump into driver problems:
(1) Download the following drivers scanner
(2) Let it scan and detect all your drivers
(3) By the end of the scan open the Drivers report
(4) See which drivers are flagged as incompatible/outdated
(5) Find those drivers on the Web and replace them
(Tip: You can enable this tool to do that for you)
(6) Restart Windows
This should fix the Nvoglnt.dll error.
