These drivers killed performance on my Laptop. L4D2 is extremely sluggish with them.

Anyone able to run any Source games in 3D Surround without it turning into a slideshow with these drivers? :headexplode:

Anyone suffering any profile stupidity with these drivers?

I went into the Mafia II profile, changed some things around, played the game some, exited the game, went back into the nvidia control panel and the driver profile isn't there anymore.

It doesn't show up if I ask the control panel to list only software installed on the system either.

It doesn't show up after doing a reboot

WTF is going on?! I wish Grestorn would hurry up with nHancer. nvidia might code good drivers, but they can't code a decent driver interface for ****.

Mine didn't delete the profiles, but it wouldn't hold custom settings for me. After a reboot the NVCP would look like I never even changed a setting.

Installed the 259.12 Quadro set with modded inf (obviously :lol:) and am having better luck with them.

I was also getting flashing textures in Metro 2033 and Crysis with the 258.96 set, Metro is good now, haven't tried Crysis with these yet.

Yeah, I downloaded 259.47 and the problem went away.

The amount of stupid bugs that crop up in nvidia's drivers gets annoying, plenty of profile problems over the years, fan control problems burning cards up etc.

I suggest nvidia make a salary reduction of the driver managers pay packet to the tune of $10,000 next time bugs like this make it out, $50,000 the time after that and an offer to find a new career if that doesn't solve the problems.
