Over the last 2 months my graphics drivers and graphic tablet drivers keep wiping every time I restart my computer. Does anyone else have this problem or know why?

yep. They worked up to 2 months ago. Then I plugged it into someones projector, and it's been fun ever since. :). Exact same drivers.

What exactly do you mean by wiping?? The drivers disappear altogether? And you have to reinstall them ?

That pretty much sums it up in a nutshell. :). They are the only two sets of drivers that just won't stay, or keep their settings.

Sorry. :). Graphics card is nVidia GeForce 460 with driver sig 275.33.
Tablet is Wacom Intuos4 with CD packed driver. But that's only wiped twice so far (brand new).

Sounds like Windows is rolling back something it's not happy with, info in event logs?

Sounds like (if youre using 64 bit), its blocking some or part of those drivers. Which 64 bit will do. If it doesnt like something you've installed. Because it may cause probs later

Sorry how would I check this? (you think I would know by now. :D)

Thanks. Any way to fix it? But the weird thing is that it worked before for about 4 months no prob, and also its a 64bit driver.

I would check event viewer. See what it says after you reboot
