Fresh install windows, roll back a few drivers, reflash your BIOS and if it's still happening then we will talk.

Then you avoid the issue altogether. If people are reporting them having no issues with 314.22 but having tons with 320.18...wouldn't doing a clean windoes install, reverting a few releases and reflashin their bios negate the point? You've(anyone) avoided entirely the situation. You're not using the same problematic driver, hence the problem is resolved...but that don't mean there isn't a problem, just like anyone not catching the flu a given year doesn't mean there is no flu and he won't catch it the next year wink.gif

After experiencing problems with this driver I rolled back to an older WHQL but I just got a dxgmms1.sys page_fault_in_nonpaged_area BSOD. So it's either permanent damage to my card or my windows install. (SFC /scannow can't find anything wrong)

this is like their 3rd card killing release in the last 28 months.

I have this on both of my PC's and no issues at all with this driver... If this is really causing issues then why hasn't nVidia said anything...

That's the whole point.

If this driver is apparently damaging his GPU/has damaged his GPU and it no longer works. Then if rolling back to 314 drivers with a clean install fixes the issue then his supposedly damaged card was never damaged, it was just a driver issue. That's the point.

Sure if what's been said is true and cards are overheating. Sure that's a legitimate issue and could be possible but to check if that is what happened and heat has damaged his GPU somehow you'd have to do that anyways to check.

The point actually is that most people, after rolling back, are now experiencing 3-4x the issues then they were prior to installing the driver, at all.

That's a clear identifier that there's permanent damage.

If you're STILL experiencing issues with a fresh OS/driver install and the ONLY variable in the entire equation was 320.18 then, it's reasonably conclusive that 320.18 is actually damaging the cards.

A read through Guru 3D points out over 10 users with direct voltage/heat issues with the cards spiking regularly while nothing was loaded, several did a complete re-install and are now artifacting, for the first time, ever -- That identifies a serious problem.

The same is true of [H] and Tom's -- If you had actually READ the threads posted there, you would have seen that the issues persist after a roll-back/full install -- IMO, that reeks of a corrupted card...Add on the heat issues...You have a recipe for at least 6 ways a card can go down.

Regardless of your opinion on other user's abilities/experiences -- Those issues are just as legitimate as anyone else's...The fact that you so easily dismiss them because they're inexperienced shows how green you actually are. -- Every problem, no matter how stupid, is actually worth looking at...Especially when the Nvidia forums are FLOODED with claims of destroyed cards -- Particularly Fermis.

While I haven't had any strange in-game issues, I've certainly had a lot of trouble waking the machine from sleep, or, returning from an extended absence and finding the desktop non-responsive, requiring a hard reset.

Given the number of people who run this same driver daily and have no trouble, I wonder what those of us who are having trouble have in common?
