How do I manually uninstall drivers?
I don't know how this happened, but when I clicked the link to download 71.84 Beta drivers, I downloaded 67.02 by mistake. I didn't realize that when I ran setup and the 67.02 drivers didn't install properly.

I ended up having to reinstall my old drivers over 67.02 because there wasn't an option to uninstall them in Add/Remove programs. How do I make sure that the 67.02 drivers are gone for good?

Now you see I gotta help you, cause your a fellow fan of the shield. To make sure just right click the desktop, go to properties, settings, advanced, click on the geforce tab. Make sure in the white menu that you are selected on Geforce card at top. At the bottom of that window to the right you will see all of your driver files in the menu. Look at the #s at the end and make sure every file ends with 7184. If they all do great your good to go.

to uninstall your drivers, go to www.guru3d.com and download the Driver cleaner pro and download, install, update it, and set it to remove only Nvidia drivers, then have it remove them THEN download and install 71.84 over them

Hi, guys I got a question about manually removing driver updates.

I got the GeFore 5600 FX Ultra, a DivX edition thingy.
This vidcard isn't compatible with OpenGL, but I wanted to play CS with OpenGL, so I dled a driver update.

And guess what? The update raped my vidcard, making pixels bigger, fps drop, and just tearing the whole screen apart.

How can I get back to my old driver version, and delete/remove/uninstall the driver update and get my old screen back?

Regards, Rob
