Microsoft has finally started rolling out the Windows 10 May 2019 Update to the general public. As expected, this release brings a bunch of issues to the table.

Many users who attempted to install Windows 10 version 1903, reported that the update failed to install. The user encountered error code 0x8007000e and explained the issue in the following manner:

This morning I tried to update to Version 1903 of Windows 10. The update failed with error code 0x8007000e. After the failure my video display was distorted. In Device Manager both my Intel Graphics and Nvidia Geforce GT 540M are showing up as being faulty.

Luckily, the OP managed to fix the display by deleting and reinstalling Nvidia Geforce GT 540M and Intel Graphics.

The user also attempted to update these drivers but the update failed with a prompt “Best drivers are already installed“. The drivers didn’t install properly but the user was lucky enough to fix display issues.
