Default Yea

I installed the latest drivers for my video card..

BFG 6800 GT 256mb 8x agp and in CS source I ke[t freezing up then in BF 2 single player I kept lagging up..

Should I uninstall the drivers and install the old onest that came with the card because I went to play CS:S and was like your drivers are out of date blah blah you should update?

Suggestioms?

Also if I am too install the old drivers how I rid the new ones completely..

This is pissing me off this god damn damn video card and the games ya know, this is is soppoused to be my new machine.

Thanks

the new drivers should be better.
however to get to the drivers you should go, start, control panel, system, hardware, device manager then double click on your graphics card where you will have thew option to unistall or install drivers.
how old is your p.c? do you think it could be lagging for any other reason?

U should have no problems running the games with some older drivers.
I haven't got the newest ones yet, I'm too lazy to get them. So u should be fine with the older drivers.
