How To: Grab GeForce driver manually after GeForce Experience downloads it

Recommended Posts

Some people have wondered how they can manually install the GeForce driver once GeForce Experience downloads it so I decided to make a quick video demonstrating this. The reason for doing this so is as follows:

1. You can store the file for later use on usb

2. You can opt to do a clean uninstall from the control panel + DDU

3. Sometimes an install directly from GFE can fail

4. Game Ready drivers will only be available on GFE after december and NVIDIA won't be publishing them on their website.

Here's the video, if you have any questions let me know:

Thank you for making the helpful video.   Very useful tip.   I'll create a shortcut to C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation on my desktop also.

      Hello!
       
      I have joined the forums some time ago to learn about modding drivers for laptops and thanks to the community here I was able to upgrade my Dell M6700 with a GTX880m. This time I am stuck on a couple of GPU issues that seem to be corresponding to each other. Let me go through these things below.
       
      I have upgraded the M6700 with a GTX970m - OS is working fine, all everyday tasks going great and by replacing the 880m with a newer card I gained some power and lowered the temperature of the system. In order to install drivers for this 970m (the other card too) I had to modify "nvdmi.inf" file and trick the driver installator to think, that my laptop was an Alienware. I have figured that out by trial and error. However, strange issues happen since the new card arrived:
      - first of all, no matter which new driver is getting installed, after OS restart and some time, the screen flashes and comes back on - when going to NVIDIA Control Panel it shows that the driver installed is v.353.54 - it just changes the driver version as if it was stored somewhere in the OS. Of course each time I am performing a clean install with DDU
      - secondly, from time to time when powered on, all I can see is a blurred image of the Windows' welcome screen, as if the resolution was changed to a super-low setting - a reset helps with that
      - finally, the outcome of all this is that I can't run any game on the laptop for longer than 10-15 minutes. I have recently purchased Divinity 2 and it runs on its "ultra" settings, but the laptop just dies after a quarter and powers itself off, followed by a screen flash
       
      Now I know that these might be various things in my system, but I have a feeling that it is GPU related and there might be something wrong with the drivers as previously (on the 880m) I was able to run games for as long as desired. And yes, I have already tried monitoring the temperatures, lowering in-game settings and even underclocking my CPU (i7 3940XM) - the CPU gets a bit hot if you ask me - up to around 90 degrees, but other than that, all seems fine.
       
      Help!

      I share this simple tutorial to control the fan speed of the notebook, it's useful to play games and control the temperature a little more.
      the program I use is called HWiNFO64 and you can search for it in google
       
      when you download the program choose the option "sensors", Then under the window there will be a small fan icon, here you can choose the speed or create a custom mode.
      when you restart the system, the fan will return to normal speed.
      I think you can use the same method for other notebooks.
       
      That's it, now you can control the speed, enjoy
      (sorry for my noob english )
