just a few minutes ago my video card 'Winfast GForce FX 5600 128mb DDR, 8 x AGP' decided to upate itself, it downloaded and installed the following file: http://www.leadtek.com.tw/eng/support/download.asp?downlineid=21&downline=GeForce%20FX%20A300/A310/A340%20series As my card is the AC10 version. I let it happen and all that and download, but when It comes to installation it says its older then the current driver I have. so i tell it no tto overrite the files on installation. When I go to play my games I get a message saying 'your video driver is outdated, redirecting to Nvidia drivers page' please help me as I dont have any spare money to fix the computer if a problem arises.

I'd first go download the "newest offical" drivers off nvidia's site, and if that doesnt fix it... then download the olderversion off the nvidia site and install them over the new.

Yes, could be... go to nvidia's website and get the newest "offical" download. If that doesnt work, try some older drivers. If that doesnt work, uninstall ALL the unwanted drivers and reinstall the newest... and if that doesnt work, uninstall that and get an older one again.

DemonWolf just uninstall all drivers

Just Uninstall ALL Drivers.

Clean out your system. Get rid of the conflicting files. THEN reinstall your drivers.

The Latest WinFast drivers (LeadTek actually, as mentioned), will conflict with the nVidia drivers.

You will have better stability, and performance, if you uninstall the old drivers, and then install the new ones. I never reboot while doing this, but that is just me...
