What to do in a situation when updates are not required

This option is also possible. You got an OS response saying that driver update for the video card is not required, but an error VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR continues to pop up. Go to system in safe mode and click again (right click) by the name of the video card. Follow these steps:

Starting the OS in normal mode

When braking driver loading processes, check that whether the Update Center has disconnected. Activate the service if it is inactive.

If updating the drivers does not help, clean the system from temporary files and accumulated garbage: win + r → cleanmgr and further on hints. Also try rolling back the OS to an earlier version, to remove the latest updates. As a last resort repair the registry or reinstall Windows.
