ok so i recently updated my drivers to one from this site and i have been getting random crashes ><


for some reason the `rollback driver` in device manager is greyed out??

so my only option is to uninstall it and get the best one that works?

my card is geforce 9800 gtx+

thanks for your time.

1. Download the latest drivers that are WHQL version from nVidia. Make sure you're not getting beta drivers. Save them somewhere you'll remember where they are.

2. Download a program called Driver Sweeper here. Run it and uninstall all of your video drivers completely.

3. Restart your PC, then start a clean install from the drivers you downloaded in step 1.

All you did was completely remove the graphics drivers and re-install fresh ones. If you're getting BSOD then there is another issue and most likely NOT related to your drivers. Most commonly BSOD comes from RAM issues. What are you doing when your PC crashes to blue screen? Does the blue screen flash and your PC reboots or does it stay up? Any file name or exception error code on the blue screen?

I'd like to help you and I understand that you are frustrated, but try to be more clear about what your problem is.
