    So i have been trying to update the driver on my GeForce 7600 GS. Problem is, there is one file in the driver list, and it is in [C:/WINDOWS/system32/drivers] and its dated clear back to sunday october 22, 2006 The file name is Nv4_mini. i can't seem to update my nvidia card to the newest version either. even though everything installs correctly... it says driver version 6.14 rather than the much later 94.24. i have uninstalled the driver through add/remove programs, and re-installed without anti-virus on. I have done that about 50 times. I have checked my computer for any old files or file folders that might have not been un-installed, and they are all current except for that pesky Nv4_mini file. Im not even sure if that is why the driver version is not updating from 6.14 to 94.24. but i just can't take this anymore.

    Are you actually having any problems with your display driver?

    Files from older drivers may be present on the system and either not used or not updated since no changes are made to them.

    As for the "version" number you are seeing it may reflect a different naming convention.
