    How do I permanently get rid of my old monitor drivers?

    I think my monitor problems are all caused by my voodoo5 recognising 2 monitors at once. I want to get rid of my old IBM monitor info and drivers. I tried removing my monitor from device manager and let it redetect the new monitor. I also uninstalled and reinstalled my voodoo5 drivers. But both monitors are still detected by the voodoo5 and only the new one is connected.

    What OS

    Boot in to safe mode, go in to device manager, open display icone and remove old monitor drivers.

    But old moitor drivers cannot cose big problems.

    An act of God killed it. I haven't gone to church lately and He did this to punish me.

    Really I have no idea

    Well TN has generously offered me an 8mb RivaZX AGP to tie me over till I get something else.

    I can't afford another V5 5500 and I doubt Nvidia will replace it with a geforce. So I may eventually get another voodoo product or a TNT2 card. I am thinking 2 voodoo2 1000's (24mb total ram)in SLI would be nice since the voodoo5 was considered SLI on a card. But I wouldn't mind a Radeon DDR with vivo, hey I can dream can't I? A 16-32 mb ATI card may also be a possibility. Something with at least video out would be nice so I can drop the DXR2 dvd decoder.
