There are a new set of drivers for all Nvidia cards on the microsoft update site. 12.5 meg I'm afraid.

all i really wanted to know that is it possible to unistall the card from windows and it will pick it up putting the basic drivers in or will it be a bit harder than that

Yes you can, remove the card from the device manager and re-boot. You will then need the newer drivers after for the card to function well.

to remove all the drivers use detonator destroyer click here
When you re-boot you will need your Windows cd or graphics card drivers handy.

I had to do the same thing recently, and as PSF says if you un-install the card in device manager and re-boot, when you boot back up it should automatically find the hardware (in XP) and re-install it for you.

You might have to make a few changes to your screen resolution and icon size etc.

After I did this I checked to make sure there weren't any updates for the drivers (there weren't for mine) and everything was fine

well the reason is that the new drivers i have got for it have totally made my machine unstable so i have started start again in reinstalling drivers on it

Use the detonator destroyer to remove all traces of the drivers.

Did you un-install the old drivers, if you did not that is what could have caused the problems.

To be sure un-install the drivers in the control panel>> do not re-boot>> un-install the card from the device manager>> do not re-boot>> run detonator destroyer then re-boot>> Windows will find the new hardware, stop the install, manually install the drivers then re-boot. Re-set the display size and resolution and hopefully you should then be ok.
