Windows 7: Updating my driver caused a problem.

Updating my driver caused a problem.

Hello,

Today a pop-up showed on my screen about updating my drivers. My graphics card is the Nvidia GeForce GT630 4GB.(I upgraded my pc with this.) I opened GeForce Expierence to start downloading and performing the update... I have two monitors connected to my computer, it has been working perfectly since I got the computer somewhere aroung November. But anyways, when the update was close to finishing, I suddenly got a black-screen and when that was over, it said it couldn't complete the update and my headmonitor (#1, which is connected with a white DVI-cable, I don't know that much about computer, apologize me.) got a smaller resolution, about the same as my 2nd monitor's resolution... besides that, my other monitor ( connected with a smaller blue DVI-cable, might be wrong about how it's called...) dissapeared and couldn't connect anymore to the pc. My question is , how can I fix this, have I done anything wrong while downloading the driver update?... Please help, thanks anyways for reading this threat.

greetings,

DTRZING

That sounds fishy to me. Almost like malware.

Have you gone to the nvdia site and use the auto scanner to update your drivers there?

Nvidia's Geforce Experience, among other things, provides notice of updated drivers.

I have personally opted out of using it however.

GeForce Experience is as buggy as hell, I wouldn't rely on it for updating your drivers. Instead, go to nVidia's website and download the latest driver for your card then follow this tutorial by essenbe.
