2. Installed the latest Nvidia (beta) driver 326.29 and played BF3 for over 30 - 40 min and no crashes: Now I'm back on IE9 vs IE10 (which I was also a beta tester) however, there seems to be a problem w/ running BF3 under IE10 !?!
Now my system seems to play games w/o any problems / altleast for short amounts of time but, removing the "KB26708338" has completely screwed up my ability to: "copy, paste, post, drag - drop, and even go back to the top of this "reply". So, If I could go back to "line 1" it should read: "They recomend removing update KB6708338" for Nvidia users that are experiencing problems w/ gaming and atrifacts (seems Nvidia is not alone in this issue). I seem to have better game stability (and yes after many re-boots after "tonights" changes) in games but, my browser / MS word seems like it's choking on a bone or something (for now).
I now, suspect it might have something to do w/ t(he version of M.S. Office- $ht I can't even "ack space anymore" I received after the b-test / I'll have to check for updates to that but; that or the new beta driver might have resolved my (fingers crossed) problem.. ? Should have done one or the other but,I hope some (all) of your can understand my frustration... ! -Davis
P.S. Sorry to "call you out" Beni but, my problems ae driving me nutz !
I know that update, it caused a lot of conflict with Nvidia drivers (mostly with windows 7), and it definitely showed it's colors with Firestrike. People with 680 SLI scores were getting lower scores than my 660 "non ti" SLI scores.
I have windows 8 over here, and I only use Google Chrome. I don't know if my OS or browser makes a difference though, but maybe you should leave windows 7 and try something better (AKA windows 8)
