  1. Hey all

    I'm currently trying to figure out how I uninstall my video drivers, the only option I've found uninstalls the chip-set as opposed to the actual drivers

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    What operating system are you using and what graphics card do you have?

    you should be able to remove them normally, through Remove Programs. the driver may be listed alone as "Display Driver" or it may be part of the chipset drivers (therefore clicking to remove the chipset drivers may give you the option to remove the graphics driver). if you still can't find it, you can just use Device Manger to uninstall the drivers for the adapter manually. i would recommend using a cleaner to follow up such as Driver Sweeper.

    In Windows 7 I would go to the Control Panel and look in Programs and Features to remove the driver in question.
