Today I'm going to be upgrading to a 5750 from a DDR3 GT 240 and I wanted to nail down the details of installation and also get some advice on a concern I have.
Here are the steps I have thought out for installation.
1. Uninstall Nvidia display drivers from control panel ( I have a concern about this, see below)
2. Restart entering into safe mode
3. Clean remaining Nvidia drivers using DriverSweeper, shut down
4. Install 5750
5. Boot up, install ATI drivers, restart
If there's a problem with my steps or you have any suggestions please let me know. I've heard of many problems of switching brands and I'd like to try to avoid them if possible.
My concern about uninstalling Nvidia files from the control panel is because I have more then just the Nvidia Display Drivers. Here are the Nvidia programs I currently have listed.
Sorry to be a complete newb again, this is probably a really stupid question. Please have mercy. But if you uninstall the GPU drivers and your monitor is plugged into your GPU DVI are you going to be able to see anything displayed in safe mode? Likewise, once new card is installed, how do you display to install the new drivers? I'm also thinking of a switch from Nvidia to ATI.
lol asking is the best thing to do when you don't know something and its not anything stupid or anything.
When you uninstall your VGA drivers,it actually uninstalls the Manufacturers driver,but since windows have a generic VGA driver,you are able to see everything on the display
But my monitor is plugged into a DVI on the GPU card itself. As far as I can see I don't have any monitor plugs anywhere but on the GPU. Will Windows still display through the DVI with the native Windows drivers?
