If you get stuck at 54% when formatting a 2TB drive, it could be a problem with the Nvidia chipset. You can update the driver first and then reformat it.

To update the driver: try Windows built-in tool: Device Manager.

Step 1. Search for "Device Manager" in the search box and open it.

Step 2. Select the target component and expand it and click "Update driver."

Step 3. Follow the prompts to complete the driver update

If this method is too troublesome, you can use EaseUS DriverHandy to update automatically.

After the update is complete, you can reformat the drive.

To improve the success rate of formatting and avoid the phenomenon of formatting stuck. I recommend using a professional formatting tool such as EaseUS Partition Master Free, an all-in-one disk management tool. It can help you easily format your drive to any file system format.
