Ok...Its on and running but I need to know what to uninstall from my comp to get the drivers to load for the new one. It seems like everything I see says Nvidia in this stupid thing! Im sure I will come off as stupid but it is what it is. Is it the chipset that I uninstall? Someone plz help so I can just be done....if you only knew the lengthy story behind this build!

If all you are doing is installing an add-in video card all you should really need to do is install the card, plug your monitor into the new video card and boot up the computer.. Once up just install the current video drivers for the new card. Once the system is up and running you might be able to disable the onboard video card in the system bios but it really isn't necessary. Do not remove any of the nvidia drivers because what you remove may be integrated into the operation of the chipset. So best advice from someone thats done what you're doing a number of times.. Plug in the card.. install the drivers.. Have fun..

Use driver fusion to remove all Nvidia software...and all AMD software that you tried to install. Then install the new drivers...Did you check with your laptop manufacturer about making this change? have you checked for a bios update?

Its a desktop. I did check BIOS and I went into the startup and changed that. Everywhere I look I cannot find a newer driver for XFX R6770 core editon card...thats what it tells me each time I load the driver cd that came with it.

As far as unloading the nvidia drivers....at this point I dont care if the thing ever works again but there are a lot of nvidia things like nvidia chipset etc. I just am not sure what to remove and the stupid xfxforce site they keep sending me to is under construction in the support part of it.

I assumed it was a laptop as you posted in the laptop forum. Why wouldn't the 6670 drivers work? Driver fusion has the selections "Nvjdia graphics" and "AMD graphics"..it will just remove the graphics software. If you screw it up...there is a restore function which replaces all it deleted. I don't think you will get any AMD stuff to install as long as the Nvidia software is there.
