Hello GustavoDM1,

 


Greetings

 

 

For software updates, we only recommend to do it via Vantage or thru the support site.
However, there are some users who opted to update from the GPU manufacturer such as NVidia, which might work with the machine. 

It's your choice to update the drivers thru NVidia, but have you tried to check the support site? Or you may try uninstalling the driver, completely remove it from the system by ticking the checkbox to completely delete the drive, then go to the support site and install a fresh copy of the driver.

Update us how it goes.

 


Regards, 
Lorenzo_Lenovo

I have installed all updates from both NVDA and INTC without issues at all. Lenovo might release 2 drivers over a 5 year period if you are lucky so IMO you are far better off downloading and installing from NVDA and INTC.

Perhaps saving the original working OEM drivers for your machine can be done first before any changes made.
This way you can have a safety net to go back with just in case.

Don't worry. I have updated every single NVDA and INTC driver released without issue at all.
