I uninstalled photosmart 2.5 and installed the latest version, but it still does not work, and has kept the same pictures on it. Though it now says version 3.5. Help. on an

What information do you think was "lost" ?

Did you then uninstall the "newer" driver?

geforce gt 230M driver cannot be loaded (code 310) Re-installing gives code 43. Driver s latest from nvidia


Hello
Have you uninstalled old drivers?And any related program files for the nvidia card.

If your running win 7 or vista your going to need to have the original drivers or old ones installed in order to update to newer ones.

I dont know why that is but i run a nvidia 250 gtx 1 gig and i always have the original cd drivers installed,then i update.
