Now let's move on to downloading and installing NVIDIA drivers for your Shadow graphics card.
Then go to the Nvidia pilots download site by clicking on this link .
Select the following from the drop down menus:
Series: GeForce 10 series
Range: GeForce GTX 1080
Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit
Windows drivers: Standard
A new window opens and will allow you to access and download the latest Nvidia Date drivers for your Shadow.
Note: If your Shadow is equipped with an Nvidia Quadro P5000, download the Geforce GTX 1080 drivers anyway.
Once you're in the installation window choose either:
. GeForce Experience and NVIDIA Graphics Drivers : Installs the latest Nvidia drivers and the GeForce Experience program
. Nvidia Graphics Drivers : Installs only graphics drivers
Click on ACCEPT AND CONTINUE and follow the various steps until the installation begins.
Note: It is recommended to do nothing during the installation of the drivers because your Shadow computer is likely to restart. Wait until the installation is complete and then restart your Shadow when you are prompted to do so.
