I have downloaded the latest graphics driver for my G450 for the first time (applause).

Matrox say I need to uninstall the current version first?

Here's the dumb bit.... how will I still be able to see anything in order to install the new driver !!???????????????


Presuming I still have a display,
in Add/Remove Programs I have 3 Matrox entries :

1 - Matrox Graphics Software (remove only )
2 - Matrox System Utilities
3 - Matrox Video Tools

I guess I remove option 1 only ?

Thought I'd run it through you guys/girls first,then when it all goes wrong I can pass the buck!

Windows will install a default driver which only allow 16 colour and 640 x 480. It'll be enough to install the new drivers.

Thanks Jester2k II.

Should I remove option 1 only?

Uninstall all. Then Install the NEW DRIVERS.
