    grafics card wrong install?

    Hey, I installed the 169.21 driver, but I'm on win2kXP, and he made a new map called Win2k...must I move the 169.21 map to my Win2kXP map?

    Thanks

    Hi, sorry friend. That's some pretty rough English, but let me see if I can help.

    By "map" I'm going to guess you mean folder or directory. When you install new drivers, the download usually comes as a self-extracting executable. All you have to do is double click to run the program and follow the installation steps.

    If you got a compressed archive and extracted it to a folder on your computer, follow the Win2kXP folder (you're running XP, right?) and look for a file called setup.exe and run that. Drivers can be installed that way as well.

    If you have the time, you might want to first uninstall your current drivers in safe mode with Driver Sweeper. It may save you that step down the road.

      Better sentences:

      I'm running windows xp 2000.
      I downloaded the Nvidia 169.21 drivers.
      I install them.
      Then I go to c:\NVIDIA\ to see if all went fine.
      I notice a new folder windows windows 2000. (not xp)
      So...must I transfer the folder with 169.21 files to my windows xp 2000 folder?

      Thanks
