My gtx 580's drivers keep reseting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Bought a 580 the other day and well, I installed the drivers on the disk it came with first and then did a clean install of the GeForce/ION Driver v266.58
Version: 266.58 WHQL
Release Date: January 18, 2011

The install goes fine and after it recongizes that the drivers are installed but after a restart my system, or shut it down and go back on the drivers are right back at version 03.04 . Im puzzled on what to do on this issues, I have tried installing twice now and no avail.

Use driver sweeper.

Uninstall the drivers using the normal method.
Restart - Go into safe mode
launch Driver sweeper and remove all Nvidia driver files
Restart - Normal mode
Install newest driver downloaded from the Nvidia website
Restart - Normal mode

No, it should just install the current drivers you have now and add to your system without further issues.
