Okay, deep breath.
I’m trying to update my video drivers- Nvidia GeForce MX4 440 I think is the set. I downloaded the appropriate software from the site. It said to uninstall the old drivers first, which I did. It then asked me if I wanted to reboot, which I didn’t. I then ran the installer for the new drivers and rebooted.
When the system came back up, it started telling me there were drivers missing. I needed to tell it to ‘skip’ a few of the drivers I couldn’t find. Now my graphics are hosed. What did I do wrong, and how (in -very- simple terms for a technophobe) do I fix it?
