Okay, just bought a e-TNT2 Vanta 16MB PCI card with the assurance from the vendor that it would work great!
Wrong-o. It's been five days of hell, upgrades, searching for drivers and now seraching for answers.
I previously had a Diamond Stealth 3D 2000 Pro installed on the system, which the EVGA.com tech support staff keeps saying is most liely responsible (crappy install/uninstall routines for diamond cards have been occasinoally noted to screw over subsequent nVidia installs).
Anyway, the problem is that the card won't install the drivers properly. I've flashed my BIOS up to the most recent version from the manufacturer. I've downloaded the WHQL 12.41 driver install program from EVGA/nVidia. But it still won't install the damn card!!
The EVGA folsk seem to blame it on the Diamond card's install routines junking up the registry, andleaving hidden or misnamed files all over the HD to screw stuff up.

Anyway, does anyone know of any uninstallers (original, 3rd party, freeware, or otherwise) that will uninstall Diamond drivers and clean up the system so I can install my new video card?

Please e-mail me with any help. It would be appreciated! I really don't want to nuke my system and start over because I'd basically lose everything (data/programs and all). So, any ways, short of nuking, that willsolve the problem are strongly requested.
