    Default Inquiry about updating nvidia drivers.

    Download NVIDIA Forceware 181.20 WHQL Vista - FileHippo.com



    the article seems intriguing..will the download conflict with the current one i have now with this download?

    ^The best option is to use the driver update option of Vista.You can get more info about Vista driver update without using any third party software here.

    Alternatively,you can also use DriverMax freeware which is a must have for Vista users.

    Next best option is to unistall the present one and install the latest one so that there will be no problem.

    i never uninstalled any driver and replace with new one..i ask because i think i could benefit the overall gfx experience by replace with better driver.. err few times while restarting comp after uninstall or an update, id get that ominous blue screen!, though it goes away and reg screen appears..

    ^If you don't like to uninstall use the Vista's inbuilt update driver option.You can even use Roll Back option if something goes wrong.

    Just update the driver and keep update your system.I always like the users who keep the system in good state.It's something like owning a good car

    see in this drivermax update scan..it shows an update for nvidia driver. so i added the download to list.. it says i do have the updated version, but the scan revealed i still have previous one. maybe nothing to worry about eh?

    I am very dubious about driver scans as these can show things you don't really need. You can get driver updates via windows update or go directly to nvida and let them do a scan for you I think it is the second one down on the page that does it. The other thing you can do before that is to run belarac advisor which should show what your driver is and then check if you need the driver. However I still find windows update the best way of keeping everything ok

    ^Yes Windows driver update is the best option as even gives Roll Back option which is very handy if your device goes wrong after installing the updates.
