download drivers

  podlod 07:45 24 May 2008

Hi, can you help with 2 small prob, first being, can you please link me to the correct site to downloads new drives for my graphics card> Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT, as I seem to be having a prob in doing this?
and please explain to me how and if I have already downloaded these new drives, as the last time I downloaded the drives were approx 6 months ago, so do I delete the old drives when the new ones are downloaded, and how to find out if they are double of the ones I have already downloaded, hope this makes sense to you as I am not very good at explaining??

The link you need is:

click here

Download and save the pacakage to your desktop.

Close your browser.

Double click the package file you downloaded

The drivers will install (overwrting previous versions)

Re-boot as requested.

Hi to you both, thanks for showing me the way with your links, but do I have to delete the existing if they are the same or if they are old drives not needed?

If they are the same, no need to update...If new, just run the downloaded package, It will update the files required....If prompted to replace existing files, click "Yes to all"

You can tell what driver you have by going in to Device Manager > Display Adapter > double click it > Driver and check the Driver Version. Dont be confused by it, My driver is 163.75 but shows in Device Manager as ie it uses the last 5 digits.

I have just updated my Nvidia 6600 drivers from click here

Mind you, I have not noticed any significant difference, but at least I know I now have the latest drivers for my card.
