    Default Question on installing nvidia platform drivers.

    I am going to download the new Nvidia platform drivers for my amd 939 board. It does say uninstall any networking drivers first. Which exact drivers would that be? Thanks.

    Go into ADD/REMOVE programs and remove the Nvidia drivers there. Then use Driver CLeaner to finish the job and then restart your PC. Then install your new drivers.

    Windows usually loads a generic driver (VGA) for GPUs if no proper driver is located. It will look like crap (800 x 600 and 16 bit) but you can work with it. Best method is to already have the new driver ready when windows starts looking and point it in the right direction.

    This isn't a GPU situation, it is an nVidia chipset.
