    hi i think i need to run a driver sweeper for my gt220 as i have been up dating the driver
    but when i check the driver details in device manager it always shows the old driver details,
    has any one got a link for guru or similar, i have been on the guru website, but it cant see the download
    button or link, it always goes to a download manager program.
    i know i need to use it in safe made, with or with out Internet,
    any other tips for doing this would be great

    I would suggest that you avoid all sorts of driver update programs.
    If you have a problem with a particular piece of hardware, get the appropriate driver from the manufacturer's web site.

    no the device is running fine i want to get the driver up to
    date for basically game performance issues, if i download the latest nvidia driver
    it seems to install ok, only when i look at the device driver details in device manager
    it still on the old driver, when i run one game its recommending me to up dated to the latest
    driver, even although i just ave installed it

    If you need drivers the only recommended ones are from who made the computer such as dell, ibm, lenovo, etc.Ive never heard of a driver sweeper and i can only imagine what it would do to a computer.If a driver is working fine dont try to fix it.
