    Well, I just found some new drivers for my graphics card on my old pc ( PCI 5200FX lol), and I was wondering how I would go about upgrading the drivers. The version it has is 6, and the newest is 134 or something, so I really reckon I should upgrade. So, is the procedure to go add or remove programs, find the old one, uninstal it, the install the new one? Or is there something else you need to do?. Also I was wondering, how do you set a system restore point on XP?


    Thanks

    Download the new drivers from the nvidia website (i think you have a GeforceFX 5200, right?), double click on it, follow the setup (next, i agree, always the same things) and then restart your pc. Finish. [​IMG]
    You don't have to remove the old drivers, they will be updated by the setup.

    For the restore point usually it's done automatically by the setup. [​IMG]
