Ever since I downloaded the latest graphics card drivers for on my PC whenever I run video the computer freezes then very very very very very very slowly closes the video I opened..weather it be something I already have or of the internet.

And everytime I turn on the PC I keep getting the same message saying my drivers have been optimised for one grpahics card, not SLi, blah blah blah.

How can I just uninstall this latest driver I installed? restoring the computer to an earlier point ddnt do anything.

Also, whenever I change some startup Items not to start up when I turn on the PC, like MSN, AIM, Nvidia settings, etc. the computer insists on starting them up, and winamp keeps starting with Mortal kombat, although that wasnt the lastt hing I played on winamp..wtf?

Is this an NVIDIA driver? First download the previous driver that you want. Go to Add/Remove Programs in the control panel and you should see the drivers there. Your screen will go to some wierd resolution (800x600 I think). Now install the later drivers. I have had the same problem before but it was more like it wouldn't play a certain game. I think some of the newer drivers may have some bugs that need to be worked out. Always download NVIDIA drivers from nvidia.com

now whenever I install any new or old drivers it says I cant because the hardware for it isnt present, or something like that.

Make sure you downloaded the correct drivers for your video card (they should proabably be called forceware for most Nvidia cards).

They are..and after I uninstalled it no other older driver could recognise the hardware except the new messed up one :S so im stuck having some games not work and very super duper un controllable lag videos.

I heard a fact one time, that 90% of computer problems are hardware. Maybe that's the problem here? Do you have another video card in the house?
