Question Clean Driver wipe - 12-21-2003, 17:57 | posts: n/a

My battlefiled 1942 game has recently has problems, reseting and freezing. I've tried some things but I think the solution could be wiping all traces and any vidio card drivers ever installed.

So, how would I go about this, I have installed custom drivers from here and offical drivers.

Also, anyone who knows a way to fix my problem I would be grateful.

I booted up windows in safe mode and uninstalled the Nvidia drivers in add/remove programs, in system properties and ran NFR. I'm out of options here.

I've tried three vesions of drivers two offical force versions and one detonator driver. No luck

So, should I format my hard disk , or should I just uninstall windows and reinstall.

p.s. could someone give me a step-by-step guide saying what I should do to uninstall windows. (I just need the basics, no 'start-run' etc.)
