My ONLY concern regarding the above comments is that I have twice on my Windows 7 PCs downloaded drivers for my laptop directly from NVidia, and I had to then rollback the driver, so I would in the first instance try Windows Update, secondly the website of the PC/Laptop manufacturer and NVidia as a last resort.

For laptop/notebook PCs, do not use the drivers from nVidia. Use those on the PC manufacturer's web site or from Windows update. For desktop PCs you can use either of those plus the nVidia driver downloads.
