METRO 2033 Crash, Driver 301.42 Nvidia

So today i uninstalled previous 296 drivers, and updated to the 301.42 drivers, never had a problem before, but now when i run the game or the benchmark both my screens just go black, i have to ctrl + alt + del to get back to desktop, I have tried a number of fixes, i know its not my PSU, i ran Furmark for 20 minutes a hour ago and no crashs/artifacts nothing.

Thanks guys

It was working yesterday with the 301 drivers, I have a feeling it is something to do with steam, gonna try uninstalling the game, will post back if it sorted it, thanks for the reply bud

Why did you install new drivers? Were you having an issue? Have you tried reinstalling 296.10 drivers?

I ran Phyxion Driver Sweeper as recommended by someone from these forums, and re-installed 296.10, BF3 does seem so much smoother constant 61fps with everything on ultra and v-sync on, but Metro still don't want to load, it's weird.

Nope no error, no sound nothing, this is the only game it occurs on, I found out today one of my Ram Modules had failed and kept giving me BSOD, so I thought it could be that, but nope, still the same, I even tried verifying the Cache on steam but nothing, apparently its a common fault with Metro.

I have tried a load of stress tests to make sure its not my Hardware, Furmark, OCCT, Prime95, Kombuster, Linx, 3DMark11, MemtestCL

and everything came back absolutely fine, I'm confused lol.

Have you tried going to the main directory were metro is installed and launching from the metro2033.exe instead of launching through steam to see if it will launch like this or not?

Metro 2033 free!
Hey guys, Didn't know if anyone has heard but you can get Metro 2033 free only until tomorrow 10:00 am PST so if you don't already have it, get it! You will need to have Steam client installed to get it though. :)

Metro 2033 will not go fullscreen
I tinkered with the user.cfg before, and I went back in to change it, but I can still see the taskbar when I open Metro. I when into Steam and verified the files, and it re-downloaded 1 thing at it didn't help. I've tried F11 and Alt+Enter.

Metro 2033 Setup not launching.
I can't seem to get this to go. :/ The disk has a few minor scratches. I bought it used, so that's to be expected. As far as I can tell it's nothing major. I don't believe it's my drive either. I just installed Escape From Butcher Bay a couple days ago and it went fine. Autorun pops up,...

Metro 2033 - Critic Review
I installed. Played first mission. Now I have my thoughts. GRAPHICS The biggest talk about this game is graphics. Now I may not have 4 580GTX, 16Gb of RAM and 2 Xenon procesor, my hardware can pull of recent games with minor setting tweaks. While the game IS VERY detailed, it is way overdone....
