First, while your current drivers are installed, you must extract, patch, and make ready the 42.51 driver.
Uninstall the current drivers.
When Windows restarts, just stop and close the "New hardware wizard".
Open 2 Windows Explorer windows, go to
In one of them, search for
all files and folders
with the name "inf"
and containing the word "nvidia"
When it shows the result list (it should be 2 - 5 or so),
find each of the *.inf files in the other Windows Explorer window.
Each should have a corresponding *.PNF file with the same name.
Delete each *.inf and its corresponding *.PNF
Now Windows have no default Nvidia driver inf anymore.
Right-click "My Computer" on your desktop, choose "Manage"
In the "Computer Management" window, choose "Device Manager"
Now you will see your graphic card with a yelllow question mark,
showing that it needs a driver.
Right-click it, and choose "Update Driver..."
In the "Hardware Update Wizard", select "Install from a list or a specific location (Advanced)"
- click "Next>"
"Search for the best driver in these locations" should be checked,
"Include this location in the search:" should also be checked.
Click "Browse" button, browse to the folder with your patched 42.51 driver
- click "OK" in the browsing window.
Click "Next>" button in the "Hardware Update Wizard"
Windows will now find your patched 42.51 driver..!
And then it's just "OK", "Yes", "Next", etc. etc.
