Do you mean safe mode?

And I know it may be a while since someones posted this up, but it seems to me that people arent doing their drivers via the full delete/reinstall method instead of letting windows or nvidia programs do the work for them? This is the way everyone should be doing it, at least for w7, but Im sure that it applies for w8.

Same here -- I always update manually, after uninstalling existing drivers, and do a clean, custom installation of just Display and PhysX (since that's all I'm using), and update SLI profiles as needed.

So far no issues in crysis, but I have to try them in BF3 since thats the other half of my life. One question though, how are you manually updating SLI profiles without the driver download file? Is there a place to find JUST the profiles? If that were the case I wouldve stuck with my 8 month old 301 drivers

There's a little GeForce SLI Profile utility that you can download (I forget where I got it now; I think I just searched) that allows you to export your profiles into a text file. You can manually edit this in Notepad or any other text editor, save your updates, and then import the added/updated profiles back in.

I used it, almost successfully smile.gif , to create a SLI profile for L.A. Noire -- not like you really need SLI to run the game; was just experimenting. I had better luck creating one for Black Mesa Source; just copied the profile for Counter-Strike Source and changed the executable name. The catch is that you need to know what to edit. It was easy for the BMS one, for example, because that was just changing the executable name and giving it a similar profile from another game with the same engine. But for L.A. Noire it was scouring through forums to look for SLI bit suggestions that others posted. I think you can use Nvidia Inspector for this also. It's not something I've spent a whole lot of time with; still learning.

Graphics Driver Installation Failed ( BSOD or Error ) on Windows 8 / Windows 7 - [SOLVED]

Overall instruction for Reinstall / Update Graphics Driver.
Succeeded on NVIDIA, may be actual for AMD too (my previous AMD adapter has almost the same installation problems on Windows 8).

Simptoms:
~~~~~~

- BSOD during Re/Install procedure (at the new driver applying phase)
- Installation failure of other components from the pack (HD Audio, PhysX, etc.)
- Manual driver installation failure: "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it"
- PCIe malfunction (Gen2 instead of Gen3)
- Won't install / work PhysX
- In case of system applies driver (just over old driver only and without "Clear installation"), other components of the pack won't install properly at the same time. NVIDIA Control Panel don't start.
- You had tried everithing, but installation process won't complete properly.

DECISION:
~~~~~~~

Main rules:

1. DON'T PROCEED WITH DEFAULT PATH FOR DRIVERS UNPACKING!
2. DON'T PUT ANY INSTALLATION PACKS of the ANY PROGRAM SETUP (*.exe) or Updates for other programs ON ANY ROOT DISK (SYSTEM OR NOT). Put it into the temporary folder with short name. If you didn't know, stop do it like this right now - it's a wrong workflow.



How to
~~~~~

Skip first three items, if you did not encounter problems with installation before.

1.1 Turn Off Driver Installation option from Windows Update.

1.2 Clear OS from any old drivers, that was installed before. You can use any tools to clear files, folders and registry: standard Uninstall, disk searching, CCleaner, TuneUp Utilities, etc.

1.3 Reboot. You can Turn Off computer to clear RAM from previous errors.

4. ATTENTION! Put installation file (*.exe) to the any TEMP folder with short name, better at the non-system drive. But NOT to the ROOT DRIVE in any case!
For example: D:\TEMP

5. THE MAIN CHECKPOINT! Run pack "from Administrator". In the first splash window BROWSE TO ANOTHER CUSTOM SHORT NAMED FOLDER, NOT TO DEFAULT PLACE! (Welcome to oldschool computing, he-he smile.gif
For example: D:\TEMP

6. Complete installation with custom choice of the pack components, TURN ON "Clear Install" checkbox.

7. Enjoy! Now is no need to reinstall your OS!


GOOD LUCK! And sorry for my English.


P.S.

Additional Step (for some users it was the only way to get success installation):
I've got full permissions with *.reg file called "Take Ownership" on both folders "FileRepository" for Windows 8 [x64] and delete old NVIDIA drivers folders: "nv_..." or smth like that (look inside *.inf).
Take Ownership (*.reg): Link

Ill quote myself. Running new drivers without a hitch so far. Use the "old" method below- its still relevant.

It is some thing to do with Windows 8 and the adaptive brightness control,

Power options > Adaptive brightness > OFF

I had the problem when I first installed Win 8 a few months ago If you have a monitor with adaptive brightness then you will be fine but if you don't have such a monitor you will get a problem until the drivers realize that your display is unable to switch mode,

Hope that helps everyone out there,

Install newer drivers since 306.97 and the very second it passes the PONR during the install my 2nd video card fan spins up 100%, my 2nd monitor goes to sleep and the temp reading for the GPU disappears from Everest. Couldn't find the 2nd monitor at all in Nvidia control panel and Device Manager shows errors with the 2nd GPU. I even reinstalled them twice and the exact same thing happened.

So I uninstalled and let Windows install the default drivers(which happen to be 306.23) and everything is back to normal. Looks like I'll continue to stick with 306.97.
