Windows 7: Black Screen (W7 64) - hardware test OK

No, i mean the Voltage specified in the video cards bios.
initial releases of the 5 series have an issue where the 2D or 3D voltage is too low and causes the gpu to reset on switching between 2d and 3d clock rates.

for the many who didn't get a fix via the latest drivers, using a bios with a slightly increased 2d voltage removed the black screen.
