How do i install a new Graphic card driver

I'm an newbie when it comes to this kind of stuffs, so if you would be kind enough to make your responses "Newbie friendly". Thanks

Can someone help me install a new Nvidia driver?

My current driver is Nvidia Quadro NVS 135M and i would like to change it to Geforce 6600 or something higher. But i would go with 6600. So if someone could provide me a step-by-step process on how to install these would be highly appreciated. Thanks

What you're asking is to change hardware, not software... which isn't exactly updating. You would have to buy the specific graphics card to do that.

If you want to update your graphics card:
Start -> Search "Device Manager" -> Click Device Manager -> Click arrow next to "Display Adapters" -> Right Click your graphics card -> Select "Update Driver Software..."

The NVS 135M is a notebook graphics adapter.

If you'd like to improve its performance by installing a driver for some other NVidia graphics adapter, it probably won't work.

Unless your notebook is among the small minority that have discrete graphics cards that can be replaced with better ones, your controller is soldered to the notebook's motherboard and replacing it would be surgical. The only format I know of for notebook graphics cards that isn't proprietary is MXM. In the (unlikely) event that you have such a card, they generally aren't sold at retail in the US. (I don't know about the rest of the world.) A few can be found on eBay.
