Default Driver Removal.

Hey folks, is there a program that removes all graphics drivers from your system? or is there an easy way to do it?

If you could tell me about a program that can do it or tell me how to do it I would be most appreciative. Thanks

I use the "add/remove programs" program. Just go into the control panel and open it up. There should be a list of programs in there, one of which should be the driver/drivers for your video card. Remove it, then restart your computer. If you're sucessful your monitor will be in 16 color mode using the windows generic drivers. Then reload the driver you want to use. hope this helps
