i've experienced problems with both restricted packages 177 and 180, where my display won't wake after resuming from a standby, and i looked @ nvidia's drivers page. they have a driver for my system (amd64) that list this problem as being fixed...

i'd like to know how to go about switching to this downloaded driver without causing conflicts, problems with the drivers installed currently (i am using restricted 177).

should i just download and install or do i have to remove the driver i am using right now first ?
