the steps i go through when updating my driver is as follows.
here's the tricky part.
when i restart windows AUTOMATICALLY reinstalls all the default drivers for my card. including the ancient driver that came with the card.
i cannot find a way to cancel or skip this step.
but after the wizard is finished doing its little thing i run the install for the modern NVIDIA driver. and i am prompted to restart.
after restarting again, the driver runs great. all games play fine.
any time after this, if i shut down or restart it seems to use the old driver as the dominant driver once the computer starts back up and i have to go through all that stuff again just to get my games to run properly.
is there any way to make this modern driver my dominant driver all the time?
