If you can boot normally, right-click MyComputer and choose Properties, or go to Start->ControlPanel->System.
Choose the Hardware tab, and click Device Manager.
There you will see all the device drivers installed in the system. If yours is not listed, you can choose Show Hidden Devices from the View menu.
Once you found the driver you want to remove, right-click it and choose Uninstall.

If you can't boot normally, you will have to boot to Safe Mode. This is done by pressing F8 key before Windows starts to load; you can press it several times when the initial tests & information screens are displayed. A menu will be shown, from which you need to choose Safe Mode. Once the system finishes loading you need to do the same sequence as described before.

Good luck and please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped.

My hp 3115m keeps rebooting. a blue screen pops up and says there was an error and my computer will restart. it keeps doing this over and over. what can I do?


chris, did you download an application or driver? If so try uninstalling it in safe mode. Blue screen is not a good sign. Re-start normally after the uninstall.

How to speed up your PC? PC slow is caused by problems in the registry that accrue over time. Installing and uninstalling programs leave behind fragments — stray files, orphaned startup tasks, corrupted drivers. Over time the registry starts to get bogged down and conflicts emerge. Left unchecked, your system will become increasingly unstable, run more slowly and crash more frequently.
The Solution
RegTool is the easy answer to registry problems. It conducts deep scans of your registry to check for errors and conflicts, then repairs and optimizes the registry to peak performance and stability. Periodic scans will keep your registry "clean" and will greatly enhance your system's performance and stability. You'll see immediate increases in speed and decreases in system conflicts. Do a free scan and speepup your PC now!

Video card is not recognized by the motherboard


Use this software, and follow the steps:
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove driver leftovers from your system. It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.
How to use ?
video-card-not-recognized-motherboard-bsgsyvatoo5tbjj50gcrqdfu-5-0.jpg
There are two methods to use Driver Sweeper.
Both methods achieve the same results. This method is always able to clean all files.
This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed). You can clean your drivers this way:
  • Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
  • Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
  • Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
  • Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
  • More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.
What can it be used for ?The current supported drivers are NVIDIA (Display and Chipset), ATI (Display), Creative (Sound) Realtek (Sound), Ageia (PhysX) and Microsoft (Mouse).

All the settings are saved in an ini file. Nothing is created in the registry, so it's possible to use it as a portable program. Log files can be saved to the harddisk and viewed as well. You can find the logs under the Tools menu.
Driver Sweeper has been replaced with Display Driver Uninstaller. Display Driver Uninstaller Download version 13 6 0 0
The AMD/NVIDIA video drivers can normally be uninstalled from the Windows Control panel, this driver uninstaller program was designed to be used in cases where the standard driver uninstall fails, or anyway when you need to thoroughly delete NVIDIA and ATI video card drivers. This software is backed by Guru3D.com
The current effect after you use this driver removal tool will be similar as if its the first time you install a new driver just like a fresh, clean install of Windows. As with any tool of this kind, we recommend creating a new system restore point before using it, so that you can revert your system at any time if you run into problems.

If you have problem installing older driver or newer one, give it a try as there are some reports that it fix thoses problems.
We have an extensive AMD support thread over here and an NVIDIA over here.

Recommended usage
  • The tool can be used in Normal mode but for absolute stability when using DDU, Safemode is always the best.
  • I would like to gather feedback from you guys. Tell me if it was success or not.
  • Make a backup or a system restore (but it should normally be pretty safe).
  • For people with driver problem, if this tool gave you any success into fixing some issues your are currently experiencing, please share your result.
Keep note that NVIDIA/AMD did not have anything to do with this, I do not work at or for NVIDIA/AMD and they should not be held responsible for anything that may go wrong with this application.

NOTE: .NET framework 3.5 Required - Windows XP up to 8.1 is supported X86/X64 (not sure for WinXP x64)

A driver was installed on my computer that will cause stability problems with my systom i need an updated symantec utility driver that is compatible with my windows XP can you tell me where i can get one


Delete all symantec drivers and utilities from your system, use the official "symantec uninstaller". You'll solve a lot of problems by using anything but symantec security products, they cause too much problems.
