There may be a problem with the new nvidia driver...

Just wanted to put a heads up, I came on today to look over a few bsod posts. 3 of 4 seem to be problems caused by the latest nvidia update.

I may be jumping the gun, but you may want to skip this one if it doesn't solve a particular problem you are suffering from.


...like I said it could just be a coincidence, it wouldn't be the first time nvidia or ATI for that matter released a borked driver though.

Which driver are you referring to? I believe the current official release is 266.66 and I had no issues with that and right now i'm running 267.26(beta aka 267.24) and its been solid also.

I know
270.32 has also been floating around now also but that's a dev beta so issues would be expected.

As I said may be jumping the gun but I saw several of them back to back in the process of checking threads this morning.
I told them all to driver sweep and reinstall, and haven't heard back from any, so it may just be a problem with the new driver installing properly.
