I should know this, but I don’t.
Another thread here had me looking for drivers for a Nvidia Geforce3- it’s the same card I have.
In the process of trying to find his/her answer, I ran across a new driver that I assume I hadn’t installed before.
I just upgrading the thing a month ago, so I thought I was all right.
Anyrate, I downloaded the new driver and I think I installed it.
But… but… in the instructions, or the small part of it I read, it said I should uninstall the old driver set and try again if the new one didn’t take.
Well, I can’t figure out if the new one took.
Looking at the drivers in the device manager under drivers for the card, it shows my as having file version XXX. When I check it in the monitor preferences Nvidia part, it shows me as having version 4.13.
None of these match what I’m suppose to have.
According to the site, I need detonator 12.41 drivers for my system.
Great. I downloaded them and installed them. But it’s not showing up on my system.
Or maybe it is. I don’t know.
This is what pisses me off the most about this driver stuff. I can’t get a straight answer from anything. Everything I look at tells me something different.
Sons o… you know the routine.
So, did I get the new drivers or not? How the heck are you suppose to tell?
Finally, when they tell you to remove the old driver set, and completely remove any mention of the old drivers, what, exactly, are they talking about?
Am I suppose to dig around the registry and forcibly remove references to my video drivers? Or can I simply trash the current version from within the device manager?
Sorry this is long, and sorry this may be simple, but dammit, this is starting to really tick me off. Four hundred and some bucks later and I’m still not seeing the advantages I thought I was paying for.

I’ve tried all avenues I know of without any success. I hate adding tech questions here, but I’m just about fed up with this stuff.
Plus, I forever, or often enough, run into driver update questions, where the software wants me to check my version and everything, but they fail to tell me where to check the damn stuff.
