Windows 7: NVIDIA driver update

NVIDIA driver update

I want to know how to update my NVIDIA graphics driver.
I know it's a silly question but it doesn't work for me. After driver installation it prompts my computer for restart and when I restart startup repair appears.
So I need a proper way to update my graphics driver.

Do you see your computer crash at start up before start up repair? Where do you get your driver update? Be sure to download it from here: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
Select Custom then check Clean Install and uncheck everything in the installation list (except driver, ofcourse)

GeForce Experience Tweaks your Game Settings Automatically | GeForce

But as suggested above, always go to or
