What You Should Know About Driver Updating

There are a variety of typical alerts and also other messages that you could get in the driver updating process, a number of which I've paraphrased and listed here together with advice on what to do:

QUESTION: NVIDIA GPU maximum operating temperature and overheating

ANSWER: NVIDIA GPUs are designed to operate reliably up to their maximum specified operating temperature. This maximum temperature varies by GPU, but is generally in the 105C range (refer to the nvidia.com product page for individual GPU specifications). If a GPU hits the maximum temperature, the driver will throttle down performance to attempt to bring temperature back underneath the maximum specification. If the GPU temperature continues to increase despite the performance throttling, the GPU will shutdown the system to prevent damage to the graphics card. Performance utilities such as EVGA Precision or GPU-Z can be used to monitor temperature of NVIDIA GPUs. If a GPU is hitting the maximum temperature, improved system cooling via an added system fan in the PC can help to reduce temperatures.

Way to Update Drivers with Device Manager

1. Now let's take Windows 10 for example. Open Windows 10 Control Panel by pressing Win+X(Windows keywindows key 3and X key) at the same time and click Control Panel.
