Cinegy products leverage the capabilities of existing NVIDIA GPUs in your system to optimize performance by distributing processing tasks between the CPU and GPU. To ensure reliability and efficiency, it is essential to have the correct NVIDIA drivers installed on your system.

This article covers the intricacies of installing and updating NVIDIA drivers and provides a detailed guide to ensure a smooth and accurate process.

Before You Start

Before downloading the driver, identify your NVIDIA GPU device (type, model, etc.) and operation system.

To ensure compatibility and optimal performance, read the system recommendations and release notes specific to the Cinegy product you intend to use. This will provide you with accurate information on the required driver version as well as known NVIDIA-related issues, ensuring a seamless integration with your hardware and software components.

In the absence of specific information from Cinegy, it is advisable to utilize the latest NVIDIA driver.

Note
If you are logged in as a guest or standard user, Windows will not allow you to install the driver. Some organizations do not allow users to control what they install and how they can manipulate system and application settings. You may need to contact your system administrator for help installing the driver in this situation.

Step 7. Accept the default extraction path for the temporary driver files (preferred) or choose the desired one instead.

Step 8. If prompted, you can install the driver with or without GeForce experience and click the "AGREE AND CONTINUE" button to proceed to the installation options.

Step 9. In this step, you can choose the "Custom (Advanced)" option which is suitable for clean installation or allows you to select the components you want to install, or use the "Express (Recommended)" installation to upgrade existing drivers.

Step 10. When the installation is complete, click "CLOSE" to abandon the installer.

Step 11. Restart the system, even if you are not prompted to do so.

After installation is complete, verify driver installation by going to Windows Device Manager > Display Adapters and checking that the Driver Version and Driver Date fields are correct in the "Driver" tab of the properties for your NVIDIA GPU device.

Check that after installing a dedicated graphics card, the onboard graphics card (e.g. Matrox) is disabled using the Windows Device Manager > Display Adapters and selecting the "Disable device" option for that card.

To optimize the performance of your NVIDIA graphics board, it is recommended to use the "Prefer maximum performance" value for the "Power management mode" parameter in the NVIDIA Control Panel.
