Windows 7: Correct way to uninstall nvidia drivers?

19 Aug 2009   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64 RTM
Correct way to uninstall nvidia drivers?

In vista i used to go into safe mode , add remove nvidia drivers and reboot into normal mode it would install the standard vga drivers. However with windows 7 when you reboot into normal mode it installs these wddm(?) drivers and reboots.

Have the old nvidia drivers been uninstalled? and can i just install any previous beta's or new betas over the top?

EDIT : Just installed over the top of the default windows 7 nvidia drivers on uninstalled reboot, seems to work fine so i'll see how it goes!.

You can have 2 option:

- Download the newest driver for your nVIDIA card, use the Un-install feature of the soft to remove the current driver then re-install.

- Use a clearly uninstall program, I suggest to use Your Uninstaller Pro 2008. You can find this software at

I have use these way for my nVIDIA 8600M GT and also my Ati Radeon Mobility 3670, both working well. Hope it good for you too.
