  night 10:29 09 Jan 2013

I am using Nvidia for my graphics a GT 220 Graphics card, all the updates have been ok for this card until they have downloaded a new update being 310.90, which has thrown my computer into chaous and on clicking on Windows games it tells me not suitable for devices found, the original update was 306.97 which worked ok for Assasins creed infact all games but the new update is not working, have tried to contact Nvidia but so far no response, how can I rool back to the previous driver without too much trouble or contact Nvidia ?

The nVidia release notes advise that you do not roll-back graphics drivers but uninstall and then install the older driver:

"Do not Use Windows Rollback for Graphics Drivers To reinstall a previous or older NVIDIA graphics driver, do not use the Windows rollback feature. This method will not reliably restore all the previous driver files. Instead, use the Windows Add and Remove programs to remove the current driver, and then install the older driver using setup.exe."

Which version of Windows are you using? 310.90 only supports Vista, 7 and 8.

I would uninstall the driver as above. Here's a list of Nvidia drivers you can install, just click on ">>>" at the bottom of the descriptions, click here to go to the selected download page. You will have to refuse the update afterwards.
