Updating new graphics card drivers.

  Cmdr Vimes 14:13 17 May 2008

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.

I recently installed a new graphics card on my pc an ASUS EN8800GT 512mb DDR3. The card is working fine after some tweaking. I'd like to get the most up to date drivers for it. The control panel window that opens for the card is NVIDIA. There isn't an obvious control to "Update Drivers". What I was wondering is if I should update via the NVIDIA website or ASUS. Its not really that clear which to do.

If anyone's got some suggestions I'd be most grateful.

Thank you.

Won't the new drivers just be installed and the old removed automatically?

NO! Go to Control Panel > Add/remove Programmes and select Nvidia drivers. If your PC is Nvidia based there will be more than graphics drivers installed. Make sure you only select the graphics driver if you are asked what you want to uninstall.
