Thanks for the response. I am still confused
The disk could not run to install nvidia at the time since the the CD-roms were not working, here are the original steps.
1.Inserted the Nvidia card in to desktop PC
2. Booted card, tried to install but since the direction say bypass the prompt to install then run disk, I stopped it from installing thru windows
3.cd-roms + card has exclamation point.
4. load the install disk on my laptop & install software using the network
5. successful install of card. CD-rom still don't work.
6. Cannot update drivers from within device managers to replace cd-rom drivers
What are the SW ide drivers & how do I selectively do this?
