hi,

I tried updating my nvidia forceware drivers recently. When I check the driver version in the device manager the old driver version is still listed. I tried uninstalling the current driver in the add/remove programs list and then installing the new ones again, but I still had the same problem. I've heard talk on some forums of programs like driver cleaner, but some people had serious problems caused by that software. I shouldn't need driver cleaner to simply update the drivers on my same old nvidia card, right? how can I get my system to recognize the new drivers? Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Uninstall the old driver in Add/remove programs in Control panel and then install new driver again.

hey, thanks for your response! I actually did try uninstalling with add/ remove programs and then after that I installed the new forceware but my system still told me I was using the old driver version... should I just give it another try? Let me know what you think... Thanks again,

Try uninstalling the card completely and re-add it as a standard vga card reboot see what happens then try running the new drivers update.
