    Hi

    It doesn't auto update, it shows your present driver and the driver that is current.

    Whether you update or not is totally up to you, but you don't have to search to see if your drivers are up to date, where to download them or if they are the correct drivers for your video card.

    I like anything that makes for less work, I'm lazy.

    Just put a link where you want it and you can update, optimise your games, check your specs, etc.

    I actually meant to write 'Just 'like' the auto updater in the windows updates i keep stuff like this firmly turned off' but as you point out, it's a personal preference...

    GeForce Experience itself has recently been updated (and not the video drivers), FYI. I am looking into more info on this.

    Hey!
    Ive come home after about 3 months hiatus. Ofc my driver stayed outdated (320.18) but now Nvidia CP says that no drivers are available. I cant check for updates either saying"unable to connect to Nvidia". I dint installed that Nvidia experience thing so I need to ask if that is mandatory now if to receive automatically updates ?
    Where can I download the latest driver manually also ?

    Hi

    I updated to the latest driver, (327.23) and it cause a lot of problems with my video editing software (Adobe Premiere Elements 10).

    I had to reinstall the older drivers (320.49) to get things working again.

    You can download the drivers here....

    The Geforce Experience thing tells you that...

    And you can install the drivers with it, but it doesn't install the drivers automaticly, you have to click the button.

    But as I said, I ran into real problems with the new drivers and had to go back to the old ones.
