most people not having issue does not mean there is no issue.

The title of the thread and the link just seems like some hate propaganda to me mostly because there doesn't seem to be conclusive evidence, but hey, maybe I'm just being a fan boy.
Well once you have read the entire thread, then you are entitled to such opinions of propaganda. But there are people who experienced problems with their cards and it's not some conspiracy to bash on Nvidia without any reason.

I am going to be very careful with this driver after reading this, a few years ago NVIDIA's driver killed one of my 8800 Ultras, could of course be that it would have died sooner or later anyway, but it happened at the same time when their driver had a bug with fan speeds.

I believe the issue with your black screen is due to the driver crashing and not being able to properly recover. I've ran into the same issue because I've been trying to hit my maximum overclock and had to do a hard reboot to get picture again.

i had repeated lock ups,while surfing the net,or if pc was just idle it would freeze.
down graded to 314.22.and all is fine ,sounds to me like its mainly the 5 series of cards which are affected.

didn't i said that i have to wait a few hours to get a display again? few hours that the PC is off is what i meant, restarting the pc won't fix the problem.

that happened to me a few times after i installed this driver, i really thought that my card is dead. the issue disappeared when i rolled back the driver to 314.22.
i reinstalled windows for a different reason, then i installed this driver again, same thing happened, rolled back again. so it is the driver for sure.

fyi, i don't overclock that much, i do try to find the max overclock that i can but i turn it back a few notches just to make sure it's 120% stable.
my gtx 580 is stable at 950mhz but i only use 900mhz. my gtx 680 can do 1260 but i only clock it to 1200.

May I ask for some advice regarding the matter?

Here's my situation:
Been playing Metro Last Light for a few weeks now with GPU core clock at 1150MHz @1.175v. I always update to the latest driver ASAP. Did the same with 320.18. Was running without any hiccups, until I installed "Update 4" (did not install any other updates). Installing Update 4 started to make the GPU downclock to stock during gameplay, artifact, hang at various points (fixed by Alt-Tabing to desktop and back) and eventually crash out of the game. Raised the volts to 1.186v to prevent downclocking, and while it does so pretty well (never below 1084MHz in game), the crashing has not stopped.

I cannot identify whether its the Update 4 or the driver 320.18 causing these issues that were never there. Is there a way to find out? I'll admit that I'm scared and really need some guidance regarding the matter.

Thanks a lot! I apologize for the wall of text. smile.gif

I always stay at least a driver update behind. Don't update unless you need to, is the best advice for anything PC software wise.

320.18 WHQL are mainly effecting/killing the 400/500 series and the 600/700 series ones to a lesser degree but still..

They sound like an angry mob on south park. Rabble rabble rabble!

Until anyone actually proves that the driver is actually doing something like sending too much voltage to the GPU, it has an error with the fan/temp sensors and is allowing GPUs to over heat, the VRMs are having too much watts pumped through them and popping or something is causing cards to actually be physically damaged then this is just heresay and everyone is just being silly. !

I have these drivers on both my GTX 690 and GTX Titan and have run valley for hours with very high overclocks on both cards and nothing has happened to either.

If the drivers are buggy and corrupting software or drivers then so be it. This stuff happens all the time. But a corrupt driver doesn't mean the card is damage and I'll go out on a limb and say these people claiming damaged or killed cards either don't know what they're talking about or if they did actually fail it was a coincidence.

I had an issue with my HD 6990 after Catlyst 12.1 and every time I removed a driver or something went wrong and my system crashed, my screen would go black, I would get weird white and purple lines and it was unusable (you couldn't make out anything on the screen). But by using common sense and reinstalling the drivers or windows/both I'd be able to eventually fix it every time. Did that driver kill my card or damage it? No. Was it a AMD issue from that driver onwards with my card? Yes. But that didn't mean my card was broken in any way.

I want to see actual proof that these cards are being damaged and what generation/series because unless someone can provide it and exactly why or how it was caused then this is just hogwash. I'm not closed to the fact it could cause damage, it's possible (Gigabyte GA X79 UD7 VRMs going pop because of the BIOS bug) but very doubtful with the information that's been provided so far and a buggy driver is very different to a driver that can cause damage to a GPU.

Especially since this the best driver since the GTX Titans release for myself with my GTX 690 and GTX Titan.
