Hey,

To remove a driver, first go into the "Control Panel"; System; Hardware; Device Manager; and locate the device. Then, "Right Click" the device and Click "Uninstall". This will remove the device.

Next, place your driver disk into the appropriate drive and reboot. Windows will locate new hardware and ask for the drivers. If the drivers are not located automatically, you can direct Windows to the drive.
