    Whenever I've installed the Via 4-in-1 drivers they've just overwritten the ones already there, so no need to uninstall the old ones.

    In fact there's a good reason why the old ones aren't removed - they are hardware drivers so you have to remove the associated hardware (in device manager) to remove the drivers. It CAN be done by this method, but there's no need because you can simply use the driver rollback option if the new drivers don't work properly.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    same here, and never had a problem

    but, if you really just have to uninstall first....
    (I am running an nVidia chipset now, so I'll have to try and jog my memory a little....)
    I think that there is a VIA uninstall utility
    try looking in the C:\Program Files for a VIA folder and look in there,
    or maybe it was put straight in the C:\ directory, cant remember
    or unpack the archive from the new drivers to a temp folder and see if its in there

    You can use Device Manager to see driver versions . Pess the windows key and pause/break . Then hardware.
