    Your listed specs show your computer as having a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card.

    If it still does and is being used, that is the graphics driver which you should update.

    Link for the GPU 980 TI FTW is here: Official Advanced Driver Search | NVIDIA Select from the drop down. It will be the 900 series.

    Make sure you select Windows 7 64 as that's what your OS is.

    If you're talking about your HP laptop, well, that website is coded with BS Java Script nonsense to the tune of some 9 MB and it appears in some browsers like Chrome the website will happily sniff your behind to help tell you what drivers you need. I utterly hate such websites. I'm not sure if this is the old ActiveX crap or not. I actually blocked ActiveX in my router running the third-party firmware DD-WRT back then due to its potential for massive hack ability. Now I just roll Sandboxie for my browsers at layer 7 (application) instead of blocking the crap at layer 3 (network). I may go the router route again though.

    To those that know. Ever went to those websites that scan your computer to see if your Comp. meets game requirements? Thank ActiveX and whatnot. You could run Zap Web Proxy, install a Zap proxy generated Cert in the browser and fire up Wireshark to see what's going on behind the scenes as the website interacts with your computer. I may do that with this HP website one day or even those game requirement reporting websites. HEHE.

    So having said all this crap that's probably above your pay grade. If you are using Chrome at HP's driver downloading website and it forces an auto computer check, try Firefox. It may be my Firefox prefs though, but in my Firefox install this auto detection crap didn't happen. Absent of that I just downloaded the damn webpage with all of its glorious nonsensical web code JS crap. So you can unzip this folder and double click the HTML file which will open locally on your computer. Then your links on that webpage will retrieve the drivers you so desire. Note: The folder along with the HTML file is required. The folder holds the JS, CSS and whatnot resources to render the HTML page correctly.

    Okay, when you click a link in my downloaded web page it won't work. So just rick click the link for the driver and select "Copy link address." Now paste that address in your address bar and hit enter. That'll be the direct download link.
