those type of drivers should be in add/remove programs, start settings control panel, find something along the lines of S3 graphics driver.

Definately use Driver Cleaner Pro 3 especially if upgrading to a different brand GPU. The add/remove programs will leave quite a bit of the S3 stuff in the registry and it might conflict with the new drivers.
