Uninstall them, them search your hard drive for any stray bits and pieces, them scour you registry for anything.

ATI and nVidia just don't get along at all.
well, for me that didn't work, i cleaned out everything i could possibly think of, until there was no trace of ATI, and still dind't work until i reformated... but again, that's just me

When i switched from my geforce 2 mx 400 to my radeon 9200 SE, i did a regular uninstall of drivers, popped out the nvidia card, booted the comp on integrated gfx, made sure there were no traces of Nvidia, and then installed the ATI card. No problems

Nvidia uninstalls pretty good, but ATI is like buble gum on your shoe... it just sticks and won't let go.
