How to perform a clean install of Nvidia Driver

Hello

Can someone be kind enough to teach me how to perform a clean installation of a Nvidia Driver., i ask because after countless efforts to try and resolve the "Nvidia Driver has crashed and recovered" issue i decided to try a clean re-installation but i read that simply installing over a previous driver does not completely remove the old so what are the proper steps that i have to follow?

Thank you

  1. I am not 100% sure if this is the entire process but it is, however, what I do.

    1. Boot into safe-mode
    2. Unninstall driver from device manager
    3. Use a tool to check if there are any left over files/drivers
    (I use drive sweeper http://phyxion.net/item/driver-sweeper.html)
    4. Reinstall the new driver

    Hope this helps,

    Raph
  2. will take note of that thank you :)

    start install of nVidia drivers then select custom install / clean install option.
