I'm going to update the drivers that came with my graphics card from the web.


This is my graphics card



Which do I download beta or WHQL?

WHQL is usually the safer bet

in your case the 175 beta was just the version released before the 175 WHQL

so the 175 WHQL is basically the certified 175 beta

Alright, do I have to delete the current drivers the ones that came with the install on the cd or just download from the website without doing that? Also is that the correct selected options for my card in that pic "geoforce 5 fx series"? My card is just labled geoforce fx 5500.

I tend to be lazy however and just install the new ones over the old ones

you can use this

I may just download over the new ones any other way to delete the driver besides downloading anything you can think of?

you could uninstall drivers using windows but never tried that before

I'll just download over I think they would tell you delete first everywhere if it wasn't safe enough.
