Right now, I don't even have the Nvidia Control Panel to use!

Will using this procedure remove any files that are necessary for the integrated graphics?
Yes it will remove files needed for the on-board GPU, However, Microsoft drivers will be used the next time you enable the on-board GPU and windows update will provide the required Nvidia driver should you need it.

Thanks, Bradley. I've tried for years to update this driver and have always had some type of issue. If this doesn't work I'm thinking about changing to a Radeon card so that I don't have to deal with it anymore.

OK. Here's my problem. I make it to step 3 just fine. However, once windows restarts, it automatically reinstalls my drivers for me. Some "driver installation" thing pops up, detects my GTX 680, and installs the drivers for it. Once that happens, I am unable to delete all the NVIDIA Corporation folders.

Also, it does not show up anymore in the programs and features window, as NVidia software. I would have to update on my drivers so I can uninstall it again.

I have been having games crash on me lately, and it is getting very frustrating. I'm feeling like I spent 2700 dollars on a paper weight.

I did go through the steps to stop windows update from installing drivers, so I don't think it is that.

Anybody have any ideas???

This is on Windows 7, and the card was from ASUS.


EDIT - I figured it out. Apparently, there are two different places, where you have to disable the same feature. I went through all the steps provided, and I'm still getting crashes frown.gif.

Billy, make sure you have Windows Update set to not automatically download the updates, but to let you decide when to update.

Yep. Did that. That was my problem at first, and I sorted that out. got the drivers completely removed, including from registry, and re-installed em, but still had the same issue. so it didn't help.

When you boot up after removing the drivers, what exactly does it say? If it says something about an adapter being detected and installed that's fine.

With the recent NVIDIA drivers (3xx.xx), I always do this method but never see anything (anymore) in the registry. It seems that NVIDIA 's uninstaller is now doing the correct way of uninstalling the drivers?

I guess so! Not only in registry, but the same thing in the AppData folder.

Correct! I hope this gets updated.

What extra things does Driver Sweeper do that this guide doesn't?
