Good morning everyone,
I set up Vista 64-bit on a new drive (dual-booting with XP) on my main gaming pc last night. After it installed, it automatically downloaded drivers for my 8800gtx- however, these were old drivers. I uninstalled them through the control panel, booted into safe mode, and ran Driver Sweeper (got from guru3d, I had heard this program worked well with Vista 64.) Once I rebooted back into normal mode, I installed 175.16 Vista drivers. However, after they installed and rebooted, I noticed that I could no longer set Aero to work. I ran the "Vista Experience" (or whatever it is called) option from the Computer properties, and it scored my video card performance at 1.
Obviously, something is amiss with my drivers. However, when I went back to the Vista version of add/remove drivers, I don't see Nvidia drivers listed! Clicking on the properties of my video card in the Device Manager lists the proper driver number, however.
This is my first time really using Vista, so I'm confused. Did I do something wrong when I tried to update my drivers? How the heck can I uninstall and reinstall the drivers to get them to work now, if I don't see an uninstall option?
