    Open Issues in Version 496.13 WHQL

    As with every released driver, version 496.13 WHQL of the Release 470 driver has open issues and enhancement requests associated with it. This section includes lists of issues that are either not fixed or not implemented in this version. Some problems listed may not have been thoroughly investigated and, in fact, may not be NVIDIA issues. Others may have workaround solutions.

    You may encounter issues installing the NVIDIA Control Panel from the Windows Store. See “Issues Installing the NVIDIA Control Panel from the Windows Store” on page 19 for more information.

    For notebook computers, issues can be system-specific and may not be seen on your particular notebook.

    Windows 10/11 Issues
    [Doom Eternal][HDR][FSR]: Eternal]: Texture across the game darkens and is unplayable after enabling HDR + FSR. [200776916]
    [Rise of the Tomb Raider]: Characters and background disappear and corruption is prominent when Anti-Aliasing is set to SSAA 2X and SSAA 4x. [200777463]
    [Deathloop][HDR]: TDR/corruption occurs in the game with Windows HDR enabled.

    If this issue occurs, toggle the Windows HDR setting.
    [YouTube]: Video playback stutters while scrolling down the YouTube page. [3129705]
    Tom Clancy's The Division 2 may display graphical artifacts. [200754013]

    To work around, click the mouse (right or left button). The mouse cursor will be sluggish for a few seconds before returning to normal operation.
    [NVIDIA Control Panel]: After setting the display multiplexer type to “dGPU”, the setting is not preserved across a reboot or resume from S4. [200779758]
    [Windows 11]: Display goes blank when video is switched to full-screen with G-Sync enabled. [200778687]

    Hello Brink.

    I just tried to update to the same 178.24 driver that I'm currently running on my Vista and it seems it won't allow it.......Any ideas?

    I don't know but maybe that particular driver was meant for windows 7 for Beta testing and that's why it came up in Windows update, just a thought.

    Hello Mr Grim.

    No I didn't get it from WU; I even had the Ethernet cable unplugged from the machine during the attempt. I tried to update to the same driver I had saved to one of my partitions. That's probably the reason it failed; how would I do it then?

    Thanks for the help!

    You might be better off trying to just click on the execute file for the driver but fist go into properties and change it compatibility mode for Vista.

    That's what did the first time I installed it before I got one from the Windows Update and it seemed to install without any problems.

    The driver you have now is the same one i am using at the moment and that was the one I got from the windows update and I couldn't find that particular driver on the Nvidia website.

    Hello.

    @Mr Grim; I just tried that and got the same result; oh well, if it ain't broke don't fix it!
    Knowing the way I fix things sometime it'll cease to work at all....

    Thanks for trying to help though!

    Ted,

    Have you tried the 180.43 beta driver version? That's the one I am using without problems.

    Hello Brink....:)

    No sir, I haven't. I'll have to try it later.
