ok well i rebooted my comp (F10) and lost everything as i expected. Well i thought it would be easy and just d/l the software from nvidia.com, but i was wrong. It wont let me d/l nothing just keeps telling "no software found compatible" er something like that. I can't find the CD for my gpu..(Nvidia:Gefore 6200 OC) yes i know its an agp and its slow but besides how do i go about getting this software so than i can update the driver since i unable to do that also... help please!

you have to go to nvidia's site to download the drivers

http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp


is your card listed here:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/94.24_winxp_32_supported.h...

if yes then here is your drivers:

if we have the right drivers then let me know and I will let you know the rest ;)

OK after you download the drivers you install them some where on your PC but that is not the end, next you will need to go to device manager and point your graphic card to the folder where you installed the drivers so it can update them ;)

no its my fault I should have stated ;) 

right click my computer>properties>hardware>device manager

or

right click my computer>manange>device manager


once in device manager look for your graphic card, right click it and then choose update driver,

you will now see hardware update wizard

choose these options:

no not this time and hit next

install from a list of specific location (advanced) and hit next

Don't search, I will choose the drivers to install and hit next

have disk and now use "browse" to navigate to the folder where you installed the drivers ;)

Shouldn't be any extra steps to installing nVidia's drivers... the software should do it automatically when it's run.
