No links for anything but Win10. Sorry, forgot to link the KB page in the OP. (And seems like NV forgot to edit the text of the page...)

Choose the appropriate driver according to your Windows 10 version:

Windows 10 64-bit
Windows 10 32-bit
Ok and the other issues?

Confirmed! ICC profiles also working properly & color washed out on the monitor is fixed, but unfortunately the artifacts during restart & shut down haven't fully fix it.

Be very carefull guys when using this driver with CRU = Custom Resolution Utility.

it breaks display port, and causes the driver to unrecover when using CRU after you try to enable your custom resolution in windows 10 latest Build.

I have problem with fullscreen playback of videos in what it seems Windows 10 built-in video player and Netflix app. The video is choppy like it's playing in 5fps. VLC player doesn't have that issue. So it seems only apps installed from Windows Store and built-in ones have this problem. This hotfix didn't fix it. Going back to 378.92 - no problem there. Can you guys confirm ?

These drivers do not fix the boot to black screen for me. In fact, they may be worse then the previous 381.65 drivers. I now have to unplug and replug the HDMI cable to get the image. Also, this driver and the previous 381.65 defaulted to

Output Color Format: YCbCr???
Output Color Depth: 12 bit

I have to click the, Use Nvidia Color Settings, and set RGB, 8 bit.

My monitor is a Samsung UN48JS9000. Didn't have any issues at all, till these drivers and the new "Windows 10 Creators Update".

Go to nVidia Control Panel, go to Change Resolution menu, under option number three (3), choose "Use NVIDIA colour settings".

Go to Windows Settings, go to "System" options, under the "Display" menu, turn OFF (Disable) HDR and advanced colour.

Restart the computer (not necessary, but just to be safe).

I had this issue with the Creators Update even with the previous driver. After doing the settings above, it fixed the problem.

Hope that helps.

I have the same problem with a Samsung UN60JS7090, the TV is the problem. It reports it can do YCbCr422 12-bit color. I have a PS4 Pro and it also autodetects YCbCr422 12-bit when enabling HDR in games. At least we can set it to use Nvidia settings, lol.

Edit: typed yuv instead of YCbCr
