NVIDIA Driver Help


Help Finding Drivers:

Q: Where can I find drivers for my older products?
A: Either try Option 2 to automatically search for a driver for your product or else select ‘Legacy’ under Product Type in Option 1.

Q: Where can I find older or beta drivers?
A: On the main driver download page, select Beta and Archived Drivers under Additional Software and Drivers.

Q: How can I find out what driver version I have?
A: Right-click on your desktop and select NVIDIA Control Panel. From the NVIDIA Control Panel menu, select Help > System Information. The driver version is listed at the top of the Details window. For more advanced users, you can also get the driver version number from the Windows Device Manager. Right-click on your graphics device under display adapters and then select Properties. Select the Driver tab and read the Driver version. The last 5 digits are the NVIDIA driver version number.

Help Installing Drivers:

Q: After I click Agree and Download, should I select Run or Save?
A: You can select either depending on your preference. If you want to save the driver for use at a later time or on a different PC then you should select Save. If you want to download and start installing immediately then you can select Run.

Q: Do I need to uninstall my older driver first?
A: No. It used to be the case that an uninstall was first required. Today the recommended method is to overinstall the newer driver on top of your older driver. This will allow you to maintain any current NVIDIA Control Panel settings or profiles.

Q: I want to go back to my older driver. How do I do that?
A: If you overinstalled the newer driver over the older driver then you can roll back to the older driver. Instructions can be found here: Option 2: Roll Back To Your Previous Driver.
