Windows 7: BSOD after installing the latest NVIAIA driver for Battlefield 3

BSOD after installing the latest NVIAIA driver for Battlefield 3

Hi all

I have an NVIDIA 285GTX and a 580 GTX installed in my PC, with 3 monitors connected. If I use the 280.26 driver then everything is fine but if I install the latest driver 285.62 to enable me to play Battlefield 3 then I get a BSOD on boot up.

Could this be because I have different cards installed?

I had to go back to an older driver myself. The 285 WHQL kept going black screen. Windows said the driver quit and had to be restarted.

Uninstalled the 286 reinstalled the old one and no more problems.

The 285.xx seems to have glitches for some of us.

I'm not sure about the dual graphics card.
The only way to be sure is to pull the 285GTX and try the 580GTX alone with the 285.62 driver.

last set of ATI drivers made my system blue screen frequently, so its not uncommon for the drivers to effect certain setups.
