I would think a careful uninstall of the old wrong one and an install of the new correct one would remedy the situation, I cannot think the wrong driver would burn out the card or physically damage it, it would just be rejected and not work at all. Touch wood! I had a thing with an Nvidea BETA driver about 9 months ago which meant I could not even get W7 to start. It meant a long and painful reinstall of the whole shubang.
Yes Grizz..,I tried.....Win 7 said yer replacing a newer driver...I... said yes...OK and it did not..we used a tool called"NASTY FILE REMOVER0.71" By Rudy Alex Kohn...That did it.The card was BURNT!!.
The Rest Of The Story.....Driver 285.62Win 7...64 bit........game card Ge Force 9800.....This until I get my new replacement card from the warranted supplier!......LUCKED OUT!.....STAY WARM!..Thanx!!Vin!!
