Re: Drivers are interfering with Windows in and out sleep mode
Hi igotsaurus, I also thank you for your comments.
Under Programs and Features/Remove NVIDIA Components, I see the follwoing 3
Remove all NVIDIA drivers including Display
Remove all NVIDIA drivers except Display
Remove only the following
NVIDIA Display Driver
NVIDIA Ethernet Driver Components
If I choose to "Remove all NVIDIA drivers except Display", would my computer
still able to function normally?
Although Vista Home Basic I havce is low end, but my machine is only 2 years
old and I use casually. The inside of the computer case is found to be very
clean during a routine pc cleaning.
