    Default Nvidia drivers

    I am trying to get rid of all nvidia graphic drivers. I now have a Raedon card.
    In add/remove programes I got rid of the nvidia graphics. But I notice there is another entry for nvidia drivers. No details. And I have nvidia drivers for my motherboad. But I have never seen M/B drivers shown in add/remove. Does anyone know if it would be safe to get rid of these or could they be m/b drivers.
    Also in the registry I have entries for nvidia Gat drivers. What are these?

    That should be enough. Just uninstall whats in Add/remove, then delete the C:/nvidia folder as well.

    Then reboot then install the ATI drivers. Whats the other Nvidia entry say??

    If it says something else but Nvidia drivers, I would leave it there. Nvidia drivers is for the Nvidia videocard.

    AFAIK it is something to do with the MB AGP slot.

    Metla types faster so I'll stress motherboard driver not your old card.
