Driver Issues- Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (build

by twilightguy / August 12, 2005 11:37 PM PDT

How do you find out what correct drivers to use on your computer?? I recently had a driver issue and was trying to upgrade my Nvidia drivers which I removed via the add/remove program but I'm now unable to get the correct version for my computer. I downloaded NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4600 [Display adapter] but everything (icons, fonts, etc) comes out miniaturized now!!!

Can anyone give me any suggestions for me to find the correct drivers for my computer???
