The Official Nvidia driver may not work since this laptop may use Nvidia Optimus, graphics switching technology. i.e the system automatically switches from the Intel Graphics to the Nvidia one depending on the graphics load. That requires the HP specific driver.

For me it would not update, some manuacturers install custom drivers toshiba is an example I did what I like to call a force update (Just what I call it.) You need to download the setup from the nvidia website and extract it using winrar from and then go into right click the desktop> Screen Resolution> Advanced settings> Properties> Properties aain> Details> Update driver > Browse computer for drivers > Include subfolders > Find the extracted folder> Click graphics subfolder ONCE> Hit ok or accept> then update. If you need further help PM me on here with the subject teamviewer and ill do it for you. (THIS IS WHAT WORKED FOR ME IT MAY NOT WORK.)

Manufacturers usually use their own device IDs when it comes to mobile graphics. As a consequence generic Nvidia drivers may not install. You may need to install the latest manufacturer driver.
