Are these drivers conflicting

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my friend got a vidock and he got a gtx 460 with it. The laptop has an ati 5470 installed already. He cannot get the nvidia driver to work, so i am thinking about uninstalling the ati driver from the device manager. Would this do anything like will I just get a black screen if I do this or will the nvidia driver start working? Please help me my friend spent $500 on all of this stuff.

You won't get a black screen, no. The ATI card will just run on basic windows drivers instead.

I wouldn't uninstall from the device manager though, I'd uninstall from the control panel/remove programs/remove amd catalyst software. Then install the nV drivers with the laptop in the vidock so that the nV card can be 'seen' by the driver installer.

Actually, never even heard of a vidock so I dunno if this is what you're s'posed to do, but this way makes sense to me
