who told you, you have to reformat? never heard of that, sounds a little severe. Uninstalling in device manager in safe mode should work fine.cheese said:My computer currently packs the "the beast" (codename for my Geforce2 mx400). Im sadly departing from it....as i have ordered a 9700PRO off ebay which should arrive thursday. I know the best way to ensure going fron Nvidia to ATI is to reformat, but that is not an option. I would like to know what to do to ensure my new card runs the best it can when it gets here. How shall i go about removing the old vid things and going about the new ones properly?
