Here they are...the two opposing suggestions. WHY?



On the Nvidia driver download page for 52.16


"Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display
drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu Windows
Control Panel Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display
Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove".


Now from the Nvidia support/faq's page;
corrupt your drivers. "Once you have prepared your system for the driver
installation"


These two suggested ways to install Nvidia drivers are clearly different.
One says you have to uninstall the old driver, the other says to just
execute over the old one. WHY?
It's just confusing to a lot of people......me included :-))
Thanks



The confusion is in the conceptual sentence in the 2nd option where it says
"Once you have prepared your system for the driver installation".

This includes removing the existing drivers.
