downloading video card drivers

  harris99 14:34 12 Jul 2003

I have a 64MB GEForce Card on a 12 month old system. An add-on to MS Train Simulator advises me to download the latest drivers for best results. I have found where to do this on NVidia website but I am happy with things as they are. Is it a good idea to download drivers and are there any snags to watch out for? I am afraid of upsetting things!

If everything is running OK, ignore the advice to update your graphics card drivers.

These messages tend to be standard disclaimers by software manufacturers.

If the add-on slows your graphic display, or there are corrupted / imperfect graphics, then by all means download and install the lateset drivers. If you are running ME / 2000 / XP, you can alwys 'roll back' to the previous drivers if you do end up with a problem.

i would get the latest ones as most games will run better with updated drivers.

if it doesnt just reinstall the old drivers again as above.
