Windows System files contain two videocard drivers: S3 (version 4.10.1686) and S3_8M (S3 ProSavage DDR Twister Driver - version 4.13.01.3070-13.00.69).

Device manager lists only the ProSavage.

Is the earlier one left over from my old system after a recent upgrade or should they both be there?

Device Manager is listing only one display adapter so u r hardwr listing is okay. Could be the 4.13 ver is a build on the 4.10 older version. If ur not experiencing any operational problems I would leav it alone. Generally not a good idea to delete system files in the Windows Systm folder, even if u suspect they r not needed.

Computer works just fine EXCEPT when I try to re-install GoBack - it opens in safe mode only and the Device Manager shows the old version of the video driver and not the new. It takes several go rounds of removing the old and re-booting before Windows finally finds the new version and boots properly. Which is why I wondered .....

Lyn,

I am not real familiar w/Go Back. I used it once on a Compaq PC and not for very long cuz din't seem to play very well w/ the System Restore feature that Compaq incorporates into their pc's.

Wish I could help ya a little more on that; but I am sure someone else here who will be more familiar w/ GoBack will post a reply here to ur concern shortly.
