    Hello,

    I just purchased a razer blade advanced 2019 model with a Geforce 2070 maxq in it.

    I had a question in regards to the installation of nvidia drivers and have gotten mixed messages from googling it.

    From what I can tell you're not supposed to use nvidia.com or Geforce experience to update drivers like you would for a desktop graphics card, razer suggests on their website to update via windows. They also offer drivers on their website for my model however they are from 2019 and are the same version as what shipped with my laptop.

    When I've tried to launch a game on steam I've gotten warnings that my GPU drivers are very old, so far this hasn't actually stopped the game launching but I thought it odd.

    Geforce experience shipped installed on the laptop and does advise a new driver can be downloaded through there, is this something I should do?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, I've never actually purchased a nice laptop before and don't want to screw it up.

    @mwhbirch your message
    Yes,

    NVIDIA GeForce Experience have indicated a new software is ready to download and that is how you download and update the driver

    Ok thanks, just treat them the same as a desktop card and grab the new drivers when geforce experience offers them.
