Default Display drivers


How do I revert back to an older display driver? I bought a Gainward Bliss GeForce 7800GS 512MB, but on the driver disk it only gave me the newest Forceware 83.40. I would like to go back to the 81.98 version I had before, but when I try to install it, the setup program tells me I don't have a display adapter that supports it. And now not Fraps or Rivatuner work, saying it does not yet support the 83.40 version. Any help would be great!


AMD64 X2 4400+
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
2GB Kingston Hyper-X (2-3-2-6)
TT Big Typhoon
eVGA 7900GT KO Superclocked (650/1650)
250GB Maxtor DiamondMax SATA2 HDD
Hiper Type-R 580W SLi PSU
19" Sony Trinitron CRT

and if you wanna go back to old driver, just for future reference, you do this...

Start>control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager>Display>whichever card you use>Driver>Rollback
