Steps to Install NVIDIA Drivers

Download NVIDIA Driver Update Tool Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, XP language support download driver updatesDOWNLOAD

You try to launch your favorite game, but get an error message that states there is some problem with your NVIDIA graphics card. No need to worry, because usually NVIDIA graphic card errors occur due to some Driver problem that you can easily fix by downloading and installing the latest NVIDIA Drivers.

An NVIDIA graphic card error may occur when:

  • The required NVIDIA driver is not installed on your Windows computer
  • The NVIDIA driver installed is not compatible with the version of Windows you use
  • The NVIDIA driver file is corrupt

Read on to learn how to identify if the error is Driver-related and how to install the latest NVIDIA drivers to fix the error.

Open the Device Manager utility

In case the error is driver-related, it will show up in the built-in Device Manager utility.

To open Device Manger in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, perform these simple steps:

  1. Click the Windows icon on the left hand side of your taskbar
  2. Type devmgmt.msc in your Start Search box, and hit Enter

To open Device Manager in Windows XP or older versions, do the following:

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type devmgmt.msc in the Run dialog box, and press OK

In the Device Manager window, look for your NVIDIA device. If there is a yellow triangle, a question mark, or an exclamation point next to it, this means your NVIDIA device has encountered a problem.

To fix the issue, simply download and install the most current NVIDIA drivers for your graphic card from the NVIDIA’s website. Users are recommended to note information about their NVIDIA graphic card, such as its model number, from the Device Manager Window.

How to locate the latest driver on NVIDIA’s website

  1. Open a browser window and log on to
  2. Select your geographical location
  3. Click Drivers and then click GeForce Drivers or All NVIDIA Drivers
  4. If you’ve selected GeForce Drivers, on the next screen you can either click Auto-Detect Your GPU let the NVIDIA GPU reader auto-detect the right driver for you or you can manually search the driver by filling the relevant information in the Manual Driver Search box and then hitting the Start Search button
  5. If you’ve selected All NVIDIA Drivers, fill the relevant details and click the green Search button
  6. Click the Download button to start the download process
  7. Save the driver file on your desktop

How to install the NVIDIA driver

Install the NVIDIA Driver file by double-clicking the file downloaded to your desktop and following on-screen instructions. If you are unsure about updating Drivers yourself, you can use a Driver Update Tool.

Thank you very much for the information. I had nvidia put into my computer when I purchased it as I do lots of photography and editing. I have a programmer called Topaz which now does not work and I can't find the nvidea graphic cards on my computer, they won't open and come up with a message. I have downloaded the new drivers following your instructions but still not working. Do I need to buy a new nvidea card or has it disconnected to the other card? Thanks again. Nicola Spencer

I cannot find even all nvidia drivers in my dell 3546 windows 8.1 pro
25th May 2015 12:44pm
this often means that your monitor cable is physically connected to the wrong port - it should be connected to the correct graphics card port so just check the back of your PC ...
