In this guide I will teach you how to download and install the drivers for your NVIDIA card.
Downloading the right NVIDIA drivers:
In this part of the guide I will show you how to download the correct drivers.
Use one of the following two methods. I suggest using the Normal (WHQL) drivers for non-advanced users.
Step 1: Go to http://www.nvidia.com
Step 2: Move your cursor over the drivers menu and click GeForce Drivers.
You can now use the automatic GPU detection or the manual search.
Auto: Click "Auto-Detect Your GPU" and activate/allow any plugin/Java pop-ups. Your GPU will be detected and you can now click the Download Drivers button.
Manual: Select your GPU Series, Model, Operating System, and language, and click Start Search. Click agree and download on the next page.
Step 3: Download the drivers to your favorite directory.
B. Beta and Archived Drivers:
Step 2: Move your cursor over the drivers menu and click "Beta & Legacy."
Step 3: Select your Series, Model, Operating System, Language, and click search.
You can now see almost every driver released for your GPU.
Step 4: Click on the name of the driver you need; usually it is the latest one.
Step 5: Click Download.
Step 6: Click Agree & Download. Save it to your favorite directory.
NOTE: NVIDIA has multiple paths for getting its drivers (GeForce Drivers, All Drivers etc.). The process is similar for each.
