The DisplayPort 1.3 and 1.4 specifications provide enhanced display capabilities. To ensure compatibility with these specifications, an update to the NVIDIA graphics firmware may be required.
Without the update, systems that are connected to a DisplayPort 1.3 / 1.4 monitor could experience blank screens on boot until the operating system loads, or could experience a hang on boot.
NVIDIA has created a downloadable tool which will detect whether the firmware update is needed, and if needed, give the user the option to update it.
This update only applies to the graphics cards listed above. For desktop systems, please follow the link below to download the NVIDIA Graphics Firmware Update Tool.http://www.nvidia.com/object/nv-uefi-update.html
