2. Uninstall previously installed voodoo3,4,5 drivers from the device manager. Windows XP users should tick View - show hidden devices before doing so.

To see this folder you must tick show hidden files and folders and untick hide protected operating system files from the file explorer's Tools - Folder Options - View.
