    I have posted on the OP board because I was having all kinds of little problems and have been narrowing everything down for weeks now. I think I may be having a hardware vs software problem. In August I downloaded a new driver for my Nvidia GEForce 4 TI4200 graphics card. Since that time I am being constantly booted out from my online game. I redownloaded the same driver again and it is still not helping. I went back and read some literature on the driver and seems they highly recommend removing any current driver before downloading a newer version. Im now wondering if this is the problem because I did not do this. Also if I now go in and remove the Nvidia driver how will the graphics work without a driver until I go to Nvidia's site and again download the new driver?

    SImple. Download the driver first, then delete your current driver from device manager, then restart the computer if it asks u.
    Then install the new driver.
    The graphics card will still work without the driver, because well I am guessing that windows has one of 'em "standart graphics controller device" drivers.

    You could uninstall the current driver from Safe Mode. A few makers have recommended that it be done that way.
