How to Repair That Friggin’ PC’s Display Driver

This one’s personal, guys. So please don’t be offended or anything. Just move along as this one only applies to myself and that friggin PC of mine.

  1. Log-on to safe mode.
  2. Uninstall the display driver for that friggin Nvidia GeForce 5200 FX. Use the My Computer > Manage > Device Manager link.
  3. Reboot. The display will be a UI nightmare: 640×480.
  4. Ignore the new hardware wizard.
  5. Run C:\NVIDIA\Win2k\175.19\English\setup.exe.
  6. Reboot as what the installer asks.
  7. Use the Nvidia display manager on the taskbar tray area to adjust the resolution to 1024×768.
