I remember I had to use the 266.66 till more stable came out because most of the ones after that version sucked.
Most people are complaining about issues such as these...
In most cases it seems to be hardware acceleration in either IE or Firefox (the later being the biggest offender).
By disabling hardware acceleration in the browser, most problems seem to be solved.
(I'm personally using FireFox and couldn't browse for more than a couple minutes until my browser would FC.)
This does NOT, however, disable flash hardware acceleration or any other plugin that uses the graphics sub system.
As to the 285.62 drivers?
I'm personally not impressed. It seems nVidia cant fix anything without breaking multiple things in doing so. They have completely left any "Legacy" device users out in the cold as well. (< 4xx series). For as much work as they have put into their drivers in years past, they have let the driver dev fall flat on its face. I envision many will grow tiered of their shody driver work and possibly find as much a reason to migrate to other solutions. (AMD) I for one am one such person who is entertaining such an idea. Amd has a great product these days. /rant
In summary: Nvidia needs to get their driver dev act together.Edited by MadGoat - 11/4/11 at 1:14pm
