Default Uninstalling Nvidia Drivers.

Alrighty, so when i sell my GTX260's, and put in something like a cheap 9400GT as a place holder, how should i go about uninstalling drivers in Windows 7?

I always assumed it was as simple as Add/Remove programs....
Id prefer to do it without driver cleaning software in particular but w/e.

Never done it before so any advice is appreciated.

Well add remove programs works. I like to use driver sweeper in safe mode after but it is not necessary unless you experience issues.

The 9400 and gtx260 are both using forceware 195.62 so in your case there is no need to uninstall drivers.

win7 64bit version. NVIDIA DRIVERS 195.62 WHQL

Awesome i was thinking that as well. So just swap the cards and thats it.... i like that. I figured i would sell the cards as they were announced as end of life and ill have money for a new card before they depreciate completely.

nvidia is pretty good about updating dirvers that improve performance in the newest games, so I'd recommend updating drivers at least a couple times a year if your a gamer

this a good guide to nvidia drivers - TweakGuides.com - Nvidia Forceware Tweak Guide
