Be wary of 314.07 WHQL... maybe

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I wouldn't be surprised if I'm the only person experiencing this problem as I can't see any other posts from anybody having the same problem.
I'm running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, GTX 670, Achieva Shimian (Korean 27" 1440p), I got a little pop up in the corner of my screen telling me that there's a new driver available, I went to download it and ran it. During the express install I got a BSOD and my system rebooted. I tried again and got a BSOD yet again. I then tried to do a custom install with the clear settings option selected, bad idea. I got a BSOD but this time I cannot get back into Windows, I imagine Windows has loaded however I can't see anything and the screen just flashes on and off. This may just be a one off case but if anybody else gets a BSOD trying the express install, don't try to do a custom install with settings cleared! (if you have a similar setup to me at least) I guess I'm going to have to try connecting to another monitor and hope that I can get the install to go successfully without a complete re-install.

Yup, I got a BSOD while installing as well.

2nd time worked perfectly though.

I saw somebody over at Guru3D mention they had problems too, they finished their post with something along the lines of "EDIT: fixed it, all I needed was some support", damn it frustrates me when people post that they've resolved an issue without mentioning how they did it!

No BSOD here, I updated manually though. I don't use the nvidia update tool.

OP you should be able to fix things by going into low-resolution mode, just hit the reset button while Windows is booting and then on the next boot it'll bring up the advanced boot menu. Hit the low-resolution mode and you should be able to fix things from there.

Looks like other Windows 8 users have experienced this problem on the Nvidia forums, with previous versions of the driver too.

Thanks, I'll try that, although I'm not sure if it'll get very far with that, I have one of those 2560 x 1440 Korean monitors with a weird EDID output that only likes inputs at either 2560 x 1440 or something like 800 x 600 in my case, first time set up can be an absolute pain with (GNU +) Linux!

Thanks for the heads up, I will probably wait or week or so now to see if anything crops up.

Rebooting into safe mode, uninstalling the drivers, booting into windows regularly and running the installer fixed the issue.

Mine worked just fine. Win 7 with 2x 670's.
