Heya. I'm on Win XP. I'm about to uninstall ALL nVidia (driver) stuff from my computer because the nForce installation file won't do it automatically. It tells me that I need to uninstall old nForce drivers before installing new ones. The catch is that there is no entry in "add/remove programs" in Windows, so I have to use "Nasty File Remover" to kill off any remaining files after uninstalling all nVidia components...


Another thing is that I have read that there were SATA problems with the newest version of my nForce's drivers. I have an nForce 570 SLI (AMD). I am going to update to the new version (15.23). I also have a copy of the old version of the driver set (9.16) in case this one sucks. I have my mobo CD close at hand, and I think this shouldn't be TOO problematic...

The entire reason for all of this is that I believe I may have a poorly-working PCI bus. Any advice for me?

Thanks,
-Slink

I used NFR to get rid of extras. I'll keep that one in mind, thx.

It went well. No hitches. ;-)
However, I think I had a bad PCI card. "Thanks, Creative."

driver sweeper is the best way (IMO) to get rid of the files that uninstalling leaves behind.

what makes you think you had a bad card?
