What You Should Know About Driver Updating

There are a number of typical alerts along with other messages which you might get in the driver upgrading process, a number of which I've paraphrased and listed here as well as guidance on how to proceed:

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. Open Control Panel



Depending on your version of Windows, Control Panel is usually available from the Start Menu or the Apps screen.

Note: If you don't see these options, your Control Panel view may be set to Large icons, Small icons, or Classic View, depending on your version of Windows. If so, find and choose Device Manager from the big collection of icons you see and then skip to Step 3 below.

2. Open Device Manager

From the open Control Panel window, click System, choose the Hardware tab, and then click the Device Manager button.



3. With Device Manager now open, you can view a device's status, update the device drivers, or do whatever other hardware management you came here to do.



To download and update the driver for NVidia GeForce 8800 GTX yourself (If you are a geek)

It's best to let Windows install device drivers automatically. But if Windows can't find a driver for your NVidia GeForce 8800 GTX, you can look for a driver on the manufacturer's website of NVidia. Driver updates are often available in the support section of such sites.

Once you find the updated driver, follow the installation instructions on the website. Most drivers are self-installing—after you download them, you usually double-click the file to begin the installation, and then the driver installs itself on your computer. But make sure your are downloading drivers from a safe website to avoid virus attack or registry corruption. Download a professional driver updater or find a geek to help you.
