Hello!  This article is on how to update your drivers for your Nvidia GPU.  If you are curious on when you should be updating your drivers or why you should be, here is a great article that goes over that!  

1.) Download & Install Geforce Experience

2.) Sign in or Register an Account with Nvidia.  If you are uncomfortable with making an account with Nvidia,
there is a manual way of downloading the drivers.  The guide for that will be found below this guide.  

3.)  Once logged in, you may receive a prompt for a tutorial on Geforce Experience, if you want to know all the options it can do, I recommend taking the tour.  If you are looking to just update your drivers, please click Skip, and then press Drivers in the top left.

4.)  Click Check for Updates to make sure it loads up the most recent Driver download.  Then click Download

5.) Click on Express Installation.  Your driver should be downloading.  Your screen flickering is normal.  It is recommended to restart your computer after updating your drivers.

Manual Installation of Nvidia Drivers;

1.) Go to Official GeForce Drivers | NVIDIA and enter your Video Card information into the Manual Driver Search.  You will need to know what kind of video card you have.  Once information is entered, click Start Search.

2.)  Scroll down to view all driver results.  It is recommended to download the one at the very top, with the most recent release date.  Click on Get Driver.

3.)  Click Download Now, the driver should begin downloading.  

4.) Once downloaded, run the .exe, and then press OK to the prompt that comes up

5.) Click Agree and Continue to the Terms and Conditions

6.) Make sure Express is checked, click on Next. The driver should begin installing.  It is recommended to restart your computer once the driver has finished installing.
