Windows 7: A little help with video drivers/Driver Sweeper please.

A little help with video drivers/Driver Sweeper please.

Hey

So I need a little help installing new video drivers. I have a new version of DriverSweeper installed. And I think I understand that you have to uninstall (clean) the older drivers with Driver Sweeper, restart the computer in safe mode, clean again, restart the computer properly then install the new drivers. But when I open Driver Sweeper I see this:

Nvidia Chipset
Nvidia Display
Nvidia PhysX

Which of those do I need to 'clean'?

Thanks for any help. And please correct me if my descriptions on cleaning/installing drivers is wrong, so I know how to do it properly

I would just install the drivers first, then if there was a problem then use driver sweeper, reinstall....

That's the thing, I'm getting a lot of issues right now, and I'm not sure if it's because of dodgy drivers or if the GPU is damaged. So I need a clean install of these new drivers to see if that fixes anything.

So I'd appreciate some help with Driver Sweeper

You'll want to remove the Nvidia Display, and Nvidia PhysX drivers. The Chipset is for people with old Nvidia motherboards, before they lost the right to keep making them.
