How to remove video card drivers?

So sometimes it happens that a driver update may entail a depressing decline in the quality of computer video. The reason for this is too old (worn) map. Another possible reason is the erroneous installation of software for a video card other than the one installed on the computer.

For information on how to remove video card drivers in order to install another one from scratch, read on.

  • In the window with system properties, select the subsection "Device Manager". In Windows 7, it is available on the left side of the "System" window. If you are using Windows XP, then open the “Hardware” tab in this window. "Device Manager" will be there.
