when you click uninstall driver, it removes all the driver information from the system and asks to restart.

when you restart, it goes through the process of doing the drivers and disks all over again.

to completely remove something from your system, remove the case, and carefully remove the component.

If it is something like an ethernet card, its probably not removable, because its integrated into the MOBO.
