i have problem with updating my y510p lenovo laptop nvidia driver ,my current nvidia driver version is 327.62 which i download from lenovo website,Now for better performance in new games like gta v and witcher3 ,i decide to updating nvidia driver,first remove my nvidia graphic driver from add or remove then download nvidia ver 350 from nvidia official web site , which nvidia website confirm it support my graphic card which is Gt755m , then i install new ver and during install i check clean install , after successful install , restart laptop , then there was problem . when i try to open nvidia control panel it wont running and an error showed up and said "You are not currently using a display attached to an NVIDIA GPU" .
i try to open a game , game running in really low fps and i find out game run on hd graphic of my laptop and my nvidia graphic wont run .
The only way to repair was i install my last nvidia driver 327.62 and run a system restore .
guys what is your suggestion and how i can update my y510p nvidia driver ?

Try downloading NVIDIA GeForce Experience. It will automatically detect your GPU and update your drivers, a safer option in my opinion. Also, make sure you do a clean install (select custom installation, there will be a box for it near the bottom). Once you've done that, let me know if anything changes.

Is the card showing up in Device Manager? If so, does it show any errors or is it supposedly functioning properly?

The video graphics installation order is important. You need to install the Intel Graphics first, and then do the Nvidia. IIRC you should un-install the Nvidia driver, then re-install (or upgrade) the Intel HD Graphics driver. Reboot, and install the new Nvidia driver.
I don't know why, but every time I upgraded my Y470 Nvidia driver, I had to use this procedure. First install, or re-install, the Intel driver, then install the Nvidia. You can't just upgrade the Nvidia driver without a re-install of the Intel. I think it has to do with the Optimus setting, and the automatic switching.
Let us know how it goes.
