Probably just a dumb question


Recommended Posts

Okay I am new to this whole process. I have an Asus Z81SP laptop with a GeForce Go 6800 video card in it. I updated from my origional video driver ( to the one I got off the site (165.01). I uninstalled the old driver, used drive sweeper to get rid of the remains and then installed the new one with the new .inf. After that I check dxdiag and it is still showing the old driver with the new date. And games are still having a problem with the display driver. They are still saying I have the old driver installed. It seems like the new driver did not get installed right. Again this is probably an easy fix but I can't seem to figure it out

That's because it's the same driver.

Look at the five last numbers of your old driver and compare them to the new one. If you want to see the driver version expressed like xxx.xx, go to the nvidia control panel and select system information. Under ForceWare version you will see the driver version
