I've got a new card coming through tomorrow (radeon 9800 pro) and I was wandering how I would go about getting rid of all traces of the nvidia drivers for my geforce 4. I've heard that just uninstalling them ain't enough.

Hmm, that's what I hate about switching brands... Just experienced it myself a few weeks ago.
I recommend a format, so there can be NOTHING left of the nvidia drivers. But that's my opinion. :)

dont you think formating is a bit much when you can remove all traces of old driver
Sorry for offering my piece of advice. -_-
People recommended that I format when I changed from nvidia to ATI. I don't really mind though cause I'm comfortable with formatting. I guess some people aren't. Do what the other guys said, and don't listen to me unless you come up with problems. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
