Removed GeForce FX5200 drivers keep reinstalling itself

  1. I'm still having problems changing the drivers for the FX5200. When I remove the drivers and nvidia from the device manager then use drivercleaner and cab cleaner, reboot in safe mode the nvidia drivers have reinstalled themselves...where is this back-up copy coming from that keeps reinstalling itself??????? BTW I am not connected to the net during this process.

    See if the drivers are in Add/Remove programs in Control Panel.

    Yes Vegasgmc, the drivers kept showing up in the control panel/add remove. I have managed to work through the issue.

    Hi Paul

    I had the same problem a while back - A friend of mine told me about a prog called driver cleaner.
    Select all nvidia related under the options panel.
    If you have nvidia mobo chipsets dont remove those heh :D but I believe there is an option in there to remove nvidia gfx drivers only.

    Hope this Helps
