Can't Install or Uninstall Nvidia Drivers - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Most people are on the right track here, but I do it just a tad differently.

1) Uninstall drivers from Add/Remove Programs in Windows.
2) Restart, boot into safe mode
3) Run Driver Sweeper, I believe it is maintained by Phyxion.net now
4) After Driver Sweeper finishes cleaning out your old registry files load into regular Windows
5) Install the new Drivers
6) Restart
7) PROFIT !

Think I'm just gonna wait for my new SSD and not bother messing with the currently installed driver...oh well, no BF3 for me I guess.

If you don't want to wait you could try driver sweeper, I'd expect it to fix your problems. If it doesn't then it seems you are already planning a fresh OS reinstall anyway, and that would be the next step IMO if driver sweeper doesn't fix it.

I understand you're worried about not being able to install the new ones after removing the old ones, but I'd really expect driver sweeper to work for you.
