Wait, what was I installing?



  • Take a look at the new instructions for installing nVidia Forceware in Windows Vista:

    Under step 4:
    Windows needs to install driver software for your hp scanjet

    Step 4b

    Hmm... so if I want to update my video card driver, I need to install the driver for my scanner. That makes sense.



  • It's obvious - your box found out that you don't have a wooden table and/or camera - so it wants to install a scanner.

    If you don't scan your windows first - how do you want your computer to display them???

    You!  Yes, you, behind the bike shed!  Stand still, laddie!

    The circled text was an attention-grabber.  It took me a moment to realize that the original website had done the circling and not the original poster.



  • Apparently the person who took the screenshot for the instructions didn't want to actually install Forceware so he installed his scanner instead.



  • Um. What? There's nothing on that page about a scanner.

    Apparently they fixed the screenshot already. The part where it reads "GPU" used to read "HP ScanJet".

    Should have saved to photobucket, instead of hotlinking. >(

    Dont know where your getting HP ScanJet from, it doesnt say anything about it on the instructions (Unless they have been changed) recently.

    Still says "HP Scanjet" in the release notes PDF.
