www.drivercleaner.net

Run drivercleaner and remove all nvidia graphics drivers. Then shut down/switch cards and boot up again and install new drivers. Simple, yet effective.

Use the driver cleaner, and then turn off computer, take out currect GPU, then put in the 6800GS then turn on the computer (make sure its power is conected to the PSU) install driver from CD and walla ....you lucky your got that 6800GS, hopefully get that or the 7800GS soon

68GS is a good card. Better than mine...

I'm also curious as to which brand it is...
And remember to update your system specs so people know your video card doesn't suck anymore.

EDIT:

hmmmm i suggest just coolbits, riva tuners doesnt do anything coolbits doesnt really....

Is that happening with the driver cd?, just pop the driver cd that came with the card, they are just as good as any other driver
