I am not changing my card. I need to update my driver because the video editing program I'm using doesn't like the installed driver. Do I need to uninstall the current driver before I install the new driver? If so, please provide a step by step process as I'm not a computer guru. Running on Win 7. Thanks

When you update it will probably ask if you want to do a clean install, say yes.
Also you can use driversweeper before installing the new ones.
