Help! Can't install drivers beyond 8.17.12.5896 Tried many things
So, after a very long period of not being able to update my drivers, I've tried a lot of things (outlined in detail [url="http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=200621&st=0&p=1238730&#entry1238730"]here[/url]). None have worked, after having a renewed interest in joining the modern age of driverdom, I've done some more research and what I seem to be hearing is that there's a problem with my Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT's BIOS. How would I go about resetting/updating the BIOS on my card?

During that very long period of not being able to update your drivers, you could have just done a clean install of your OS (and all of your apps) and solved the problem.

If you check the thread I linked, a full formatting/OS re-installation was one of the things I tried.
