Default Had to wipe computer, What to do with my Video card?

My old driver got corrupted and I had to get a new driver and install windows 7 on it. I had Vista before. I have a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS ( I know its really low grade but I couldn't upgrade the fan wattage or w/e). Anyway, do I need to find my install disk (I have no idea where it is), or can I just download the driver for it?

Download from here: NVIDIA DRIVERS 266.58 WHQL

That's if you have Windows 7 32-bit.

I know that lol. I've done this enough times, I just had no idea what I had to do if the pc destroyed itself. I couldn't even get it to a BIOS lol.

Thanks.
