how do you update an Nvidia graphic driver?

I have a Nvidia Geforce TNT 4200 AGP 8x card, running on XP Pro. I uninstalled with the Add/Remove and Xp tells me to restart the computer. I do and it installs a generic driver and then instantly reinstalls my old Nvidia driver. so I'm back where I started. If I then try to install the latest version,(61.77)it won't let me do it. the dialog box is greyed out.

jzybo,

My way or the way I install new drivers....

Download driver from web site to folder ->

Start -> run -> browse to folder containing drivers ->
Select ZIp file -> open -> ok. This opens xPs' UnZIP wizard. Follow prompts to UnZIP drivers to same folder.

Start -> run -> browse to folder containing drivers ->
Select install/set-up -> open -> run
follow prompts

and then I had 4 monitors in the device manager instead of 1. Uninstalled and installed the one that the card came with and it fixed it.
