How Do I update nvidia controlpanel and drivers
I just bought a new computer (+/-) month. To install I used the asus driver cd. However I can imagine these arent the latest drivers. So I checked.

I saw on the drivers site that there is at least a newer raid driver.
This is nice since I have some problems with my hard drivers (!)
When I start O&O defrag a lot of the times the program is really slow and doesn't respond well.
Hard driver performance is 9000-10000 in the diskspeed program (dskspeed.exe) that is 61 MB/sec linair read. That isnt really fast. My old raid 0 (other pc) sometimes got up to 90 MB/sec and that has drives 5 years old!!!
(Now have 2x 500 GB Seagate Barracuda, the 10.x series).

But how do I install these newer drivers. I can't really uninstall the old as with 3dcards or can I? (Since I need raid to boot my pc).

Help:S.

ps when checken the nvidia control center at the tab "opslag" I guess "storage" in english I see nothing...

Go [url="http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp"]HERE[/url], select what you have, then read "driver installation hints". (Sigh).

Driver installation hints only suggest disabling anti virus. They are different from the ones that are present when checkign out graphical driver updates.

I thought you were in Vista, my bad.

I only ran my RAID for a short while in XP before upgrading to Vista. As I recall, XP remembers to keep the original RAID driver you used to install Windows even if you uninstall the chipset drivers... I'm pretty sure I reinstalled the chipset drivers at least once that way, but I'm not 100%.
