Windows 7: Nvidia driver update guide help

Nvidia driver update guide help

Elsewhere I am getting help with BSOD, which might still relate to my GPU drivers.

(Error is: nvlddmkm.sys, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, *** STOP: 0x000000d1 (0xfffffa7f9322f000, 0x0000000000000006, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff88004a5400e)
*** nvlddmkm.sys - Address 0xfffff88004a5400e base at 0xfffff880048bc000 DateStamp 0x5102506b)

I have updated drivers which did seem to do the trick, but 10 days later I am getting issues again.

I have the Driver Sweeper link (Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling). Here do I remove ALL NVIDIA files ? (I am not with machine - but I recall 3 Nvidia folders - Physics / Chipset / display ?).

And is there a simple guide to installation of the replacement Nvidia drivers - thats do I need a clear or custom install.

Any help very much appreciate - sorry if covered elsewhere.

Update your Nvidia drivers and choose to do a clean install, and do not just update over your existing drivers. I am using Nvidia 314.21
