I just had to fix my machine and decided to upgrade to the newest drivers. After I did, I noticed that there is a line where the map appears to be brighter. The line moves as my character moves. And before I worked on the issue, the brighter area appeared to flicker.

I tried putting anistropic filtering on 8X, but that didn't help. Also, I noted that the problem exists in more than one game.

I tried uninstalling the newer drivers and installing older drivers, but was informed the newer drivers still existed on my system.

Questions:

1. Can the flickering issue happen to an old Gainward GeForce3? I have a set of stereo glasses I never use hooked up to the card. Could this be a factor?

2. If this is not the flickering issue, could someone help me completely uninstall all nvidia drivers? Is there a utility for this?

3. Also while I was fixing the computer, I tried to install DirectX 9.0b via Windows Update. The update said it was successful, but when I go back to Windows Update, it still says I need DirectX 9.0b

I have DirectX 9 something.

I really could use your help. It's midnight and I'm very tired or I would have looked up some of these things myself.
