This package skips automatic verification:

This package requires NVidia hardware, and cannot pass the validator

This package was approved as a trusted package on 3/23/2019.

This package strips all components out of the upstream NVidia driver package except the following:

  • Display.Driver
  • Display.Optimus
  • PhysX

Package Parameters

The following package parameters can be set for enable optionnal display components:

  • /HDAudio - Install Nvidia HD Audio driver (HDMI audio driver).
  • /NV3DVision - Install 3DVision driver.

These parameters can be passed to the installer with the use of --params.
For example: --params "'/HDAudio /NV3DVision'".

If you need support for non display related components (Shield, Geforce Experience, ...), install the geforce-game-ready-driver instead.

C:\> choco install nvidia-display-driver

To upgrade NVidia Display Driver, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
