OK, SumDude, I give up.... What "scans" did you do on your machine to inform you that drivers needed to be updated, but wouldn't?

Generally, there are many "Driver Update" utilities and websites, each of them promising to tell you about recent updates.
And the component manufacturers are in a continuous process of developing Updates to their device drivers.
Most often, these "Updates" are in response to a particular problem that "some" users have noticed and have inquired about.
If your machine is not having the "specific" problem, then the "Update" will do nothing to improve your machine's performance.

With regard to Driver Updates, it is usually best to follow the dictum: "If it ain't broke, don't be trying to fix it."

Now, with the above said, if you are having an actual problem with, for instance, your graphics presentation, then please describe the problem and list the specifications of your machine, operating system, graphics adapter, and present driver.

We'll help you research the problem and develop the best possible solution.

Please read here, to get an idea of how to best present your situation and questions.

Hi, before you formatted and reinstalled presumably you backed up your data, including drivers?
If so just install the Nvidia driver from your back up.
If the back up is unavailable then if you go here:
http://www.nvidia.co...aspx?lang=en-us
then the Nvidia scanner can scan your computer and show you the best driver to use.
Good luck
Regards
