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. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
