Default Re: Nvidia GeForce 290.53 beta drivers

Add me to the list of people who seem to have fixed their problems with these recent drivers by bumping DRAM voltage. I boosted it by .04V, and now have been stable for a couple days. (Of course, now will probably hang after posting this.)

Like others, my system had been rock steady for a couple years, and then started having problems a few driver releases ago. Really curious what Nvidia changed that started pushing the memory so differently. Also wonder if when the WHQL version finally comes out, whether it will be stable back at my previous DRAM voltage.

Made it two more days, but had a freeze today. Every 4 days is better than twice a day, but sure hope 300.11 (or whatever) fixes this.

These are the worse set of drivers i have encountered from Nvidia in quite some time....2 computers, 1 with a GTX260 and 1 with a GTX285. Both had major issues with this driver, the GTX285 system crashed every 5-10 mins on desktop and the GTX260 system crashed everytime a game was run on it. Uninstalled the driver and reverted back...Not had a problem since.

Call me crazy but I've had almost no issues with these. I've had 1 crash during a game but I'm pretty sure that was due to my failing cpu overclock... I'm back down to 3ghz now.

It crashed when loading the game, then when loading windows (twice) ... whenever there was disk access.

It seems that the drivers have been stable and I actually have had huge performance gains in Skyrim and Batman: AC
