Custom installation options

 

The Custom installation options include an option to "Perform a clean installation". Checking this option is recommended. A clean installation removes the existing driver before installation of the new driver. Once installation is complete the Video Card Configuration may need to be set again is it was previously set. If there are problems such as non-stereo after the installation of a new driver and the video card configuration then a cold start of the computer may be required. A cold start consists of shutting down the computer and removing power (pulling the power cord) then re-powering and re-booting the computer.
