Can anyone give me step-by-step advice on how to uninstall old Fx5200 drivers. I tried to remove via Add-Remove Programmes and removed the lot,(Had to resort to system restore) FOOL that i am.
Do i use device manager and uninstall by this route. If advice is being offered, please think along the lines of instructing your family pet how to carry out this task! This is my last attempt and then Out it goes!!!!!

if you have xp then go to start/control panel/system/hardware/device manager/click on the + sign next to display adapter,then right click on your fx5200 and select properties,from there you will see a tab with the word "Driver" on there you will see "Uninstal" click on that and thats it just follow instructions,

Windows always shouts at you when you are about to remove system drivers. Re-boot and the machine will assign generic drivers.

I will try to be as concise as possible.
1) I downloaded the following drivers; 45.23 Win 2kxp to a folder i had created. I then by way of device manager uninstalled the old drivers ( my icons are at present the size of golf balls) and attempted to install the updated drivers only when i chose the folder containing the drivers the O.K. button was greyed out? In other words i could not nominate this folder WHY?????

You really didn't need to go to these lengths (though you may now, as you have already gone down a wrong route). You've actually mad the simplest of updates more difficult than you needed.

When you download nvidia drivers - all you need to do is double click on the saved file, and it should unpack itself and install automatically. I have never had to uninstall a previous driver first (and I do use an FX5200 card).

The reason you can't point to the folder where your download is, and get it to install, is that it probably just contains your download - and in itself it is not installable.

You should simply double click on the downloaded file, and let it go through it's own unpacking and installing routine, then all should be well.

Well good people,
i have in my way circumnavigated the World today but, we have no longer a problem as they say in Houston. I have succeded in my efforts but, only with the advice given by all concerned. A big thank-you!!! to all concerned.
Until the next time, Adios Amigos
