Currently installed is the 512.59 Studio Driver, but I'm not getting any notification about the newer 512.96 driver (https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/189617/en-us/).

Thanks. Something strange is happening when installing it with NVCleanstall (or using the copied driver files). I get a 'lite' window which is blank, and I cannot get past it to begin the installation:

Using the Nvidia driver brings up the usual, working window:

Ok, I tried re-creating the install package from the downloaded Nvdia driver: it works.

I tried installing it again via direct download: it now worked. So, perhaps something interfered with the download before (or the installation). Who knows.
