be careful

What you ask for when removing drivers!
Be sure to put a tic beside the display driver only or you will get more then you bargain for.

You're right.
When I went to Add/Remove programs and clicked on Nvidia a windows pops up and there was 4 checkboxes for drivers. I didn't realize that some of them would be chipset driver and just went ahead and uninstalled all of them. I thought they were all Video Drivers.
That was my problem.
I'll definitely be way more careful next time.
thanks!

When they first changed the set up I didn't read it either, just bombed right though like a hundred times before....had to re-install all that is Nvidia! ":O}

Sorry I didn't think to mention it. and...lets face, it's a stupid mistake to make! LOL

Aparently I do...
I don't usually make mistakes like that, but my poor excuse is:
this is the first time I've use new hardware and Nvidia drivers.
I've learned my lesson. Read all the print and don't make assumptions.
thanks everyone, you all have been a great help.

by the way Battlefield 2 still won't install
Here's my thread
Battlefield 2 install???

If we always made stupid mistakes...we start to see them as our virtues....want proof? Pick any politician! ":O}
