I have only just noticed. I am using my mobile for internet. I have had no pc for 6 weeks so I can't see content properly. I will read whatever has been going on in about a weeks time.

Driver sweeper can remove important files and reg entries which can't be resolved and it most often leads to a reformat. This ,ethod, if done correctly, can help reduce that risk. In addition, look how many posts there are on this thread. The success rate is very high. Use at your own risk. If people don't wish to use the guide, don't. Cheers. Sorry for the wait on my reply. No rig atm.

Yes, I understand you. There is a new version of Driver Sweeper though, Driver Fusion. I'm not sure if it's better but I've tried it recently and when it shows what file it was going to delete I don't see any files that aren't associated with Nvidia, so what is wrong with it?

This was the case with the older driver sweeper. It still screwed up on rare occasions. I can't comment on the new sweeper though. Oif it works for you then use it.

BradleyW: This is very comprehensive routine. Many thanks. I am about to switch from a nVidia GPU to an ATi/AMD GPU, so finding your guide is a god send.

My mainboard is the Asus Striker Extreme (nVidia 680i chipset). Given the comprehensive removal of nVidia folders and entries, would this routine affect the operation and stability of my mainboard? Many thanks.

I've been having issues with nV driver crashing when waking my system from sleep. Would this be related to the traditional method of driver installing (clean install, safe mode etc.) or something else? I'll give this a shot when I get home tonight to see if this fixes things!

I guess I'll have to try this also. I've been having random "driver has stopped working, problem has been resolved" crashed when trying to load BF3. Happened on the last few drivers. I recently used driver sweeper and then did a "clean" install of 314.22 and it still happens.

For the life of me I can't get windows 8 to stop installing the 311 drivers when I delete it. I've tried disabling gpus in device manager, turning off automatic updates. Once I uninstall the driver after logging in from reboot the my screen flashes and lo and behold the driver gets installed. What do I need to do to keep this from happening? Should I go into safe mode?
