Hi,

I've go an Athlon, running Windows ME.

I went to Nvidia.com to update my graphics card driver, and the site said to uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel, so I did that, downloaded the new driver, restarted and now I'm stuck on 640x480 res and 16 colours...
these are the messages that come up when I start up:
"Your display adaptor is not configured properly, to correct the problem, click OK to start the hardware instillation wizard"

Then I select NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 6.2B click Next

"The device is installed but has a problem, to view properties etc... click finish"
I click Reinstall Driver, then Auto search
"Windows needs the disk labelled NVIDIA Compatible display driver disk1"

I dont have that disk. do you know if I can find this on the net?

Also this error message pops up on start up:
"RunDLL, Error in NvQwk, Missing entry: Nv Cpl Daemon"

thanks in advance, for any help

i'm not sure how experianced you are, but if you can find the place that the whole detanator driver package was extracted,(either C:\nvidia\ or c:\windows\temp) then just have windows look there for the drivers, if you have a unzipping program, such as "winzip", or "winrar", or maybe "winace" you should be able to right click on the package EXE, and extract to some place on you hard disk, and that will become driver disk 1 to "X"

Download and run Driver Cleaner: http://www.drivercleaner.net/dc.htm

Then run the file you downloaded, it should install and configure the new driver for you. You really shouldn't need to browse for any files or anything like that.
