I want to install a new driver on my NVidia Ti 4600 video card and I'm wondering what the best method for uninstalling the old driver is. I was thinking of going into system then device manager and doing it there. Is there a better way or is this OK. I have Windows XP home edition.
Your help is appreciated. Thanks

Hi there!

Go into Display Properties>>Settings-ADVANCED
click on the Adapter Tab and choose Update or change
Install drivers that way.

Now, If it's an Install program, then you'll want to uninstal previous NVIDIA software through Add/Remove Programs and then run the new setup.

Hi, First of all thanks for trying to help me. OK I uninstalled the old driver. The new driver is a download from the 3D Guru. It's Nvidia detonator driver 4251. From the reviews I read it's supposed to be pretty good. Anyway I can't get it installed. It downloaded as a zip file and I unzipped it into C:\unzipped\4251 just as Winzip suggested. I know it's there because I checked in Windows Explorer. When I try to install it and it asks if I have a disc I typed in the destination instead and I get a select device window that says: The specified location does not contain information about your hardware. Any ideas would again be much appreciated. Thanks-Chuck:(
