Updating geforce drivers
This section includes lists of issues that are either not fixed or not implemented in this version.Some problems listed may not have been thoroughly investigated and, in fact, may not be NVIDIA issues. For notebook computers, issues can be system-specific and may not be seen on your particular notebook.
thanks for ur help mate Sometimes it causes issues such as FPS drop in games becasue some cached data are still stored in the Registry but sometimes it works.
I suggested uninstalling it first so that everything in the Registry will be deleted and the mapping of your Windows system would point to the updated driver.
The difference between updating from the device manager compared to downloading it manually is does that in the device manager, the program visits microsoft's website to see if the driver it will download is supported and will then proceed to the manufacturer's site automatically then download it.
It takes a lot of time compared to downloading it manually from the manufacturer's site (assuming you know what OS you have and what model of GPU you have). Even though you dont install the Intel HD 5500 and only installing the Geforce 940m it will still work, I do this in all my devices and it works It doesnt matter what you update first although there are some default bios settings that prioritizes a certain driver.
I have an NVIDIA Ge Force 8800 GT, and I have an update downloading for it that was released 1/30/2015 if WU is to be believed but I cannot see which version this update is supposed to be.
I have had graphic card updates fail a lot in Win10 so will update on how this goes. 128 GB San Disk Ultra Plus (Windows drive) 240 GB Crucial M500 SSD (Games drive) 120 GB ADATA SSD (Games drive part deux) 1 TB WDC WD10EACS 7200RPM HDD (Data drive) 2 TB Seagate Expansion Desktop external HDD (Backup drive) 4 TB WD Elem I installed this driver today on Insider Build 10074. The second attempt kept bringing up the start menu then going to a black screen and then coming back to the install. Much of the same thing happens when I try to play a Game. Microsoft's own products do not even work in this build.
I have a hp laptop which has intel 5500 graphics and dedicated 940m 2gb They are the same versions as they were when i bought when the laptop. As ive had previous experiences where i ended up with drivers not working properly.
my question is do we have to update the integrated graphics as well or can i just update the 940m? also whats the difference between updating from device manager and going to the nvidia website urself and downloading it from there? Sometimes laptop vendors have tweaked versions of GFX drives ... I generally recommend checking manufacturer;s web site 1st, in your case HP, and if nothing there, then go to intel and n Vidia It doesnt matter what you update first although there are some default bios settings that prioritizes a certain driver.
I went to the NVidia site, but all the drivers that show are for Linux. This is for an HP dv9700 laptop PC that's over five years old. I just completed a dirty install of Win10 (10074) on top of Win8.1.
I would have done a clean install but I was hoping not to have to reinstall all my Steam content.
Updating the bios is not necessary unless it supports the current version the driver you will download (This rarely happens).
