    Hello
    Could someone tell me how to delete the new Nvidia drivers (23.11) & replace them with the older 21.83 version. Do I just install the 21.83 & let it copy over the newer ones?
    Everyone is saying the newest version is causing probs with 3D type games.

    Thank you for helping

    Are you having a specific problem? I am running the 23.11 with no problems. However, if you still need to change, go to control panel, add remove programs and the uninstall for the drivers should be there. Once uninstalled, reboot and install the older drivers.

    Good Luck

    Hi Rugrat.
    Well I've not actually had any video problems yet, it's just that I'm going to be using my new pc for quake 3 type games & lots of folk on other forums are saying the new drivers are rubbish. Return to Castle Wolfenstein apparently hates them. I cant cope with video driver crashes AND Windows XP crashes, between them, they'll drive me nuts.

    Shall I just leave them for now until I think they're being a problem?
    Thanks for showing me where to look for the new NVidia drivers, I though it would be a bit more complex than that :)

    If you really feel the need to change and want to start clean do a search for detonator destroyer. It will remove all traces of nvidia drivers from your system. Follow the instructions in the readme file.
