    I think I´ll just drop back to old drivers... I have no problems with them and BF3 runs like hell at ultra settings ;)

    It's a driver issue and has nothing to do with faulty hardware.

    I just did a complete reinstall of my system, because I was having blackscreen-issues while browsing since upgrading to the 280 drivers. Thought I messed things up with one of the driver updates.

    I can confirm, that even a clean reinstall of the system doesn't help. Still having (rare) random blackscreens while browsing in Firefox (hardware acceleration enabled) for about 3 seconds, then returning back to the desktop.

    Directly from NVIDIA driver description:

    New in Version 285.62
    • This is the recommended driver for Battlefield 3. It contains several performance and compatibility enhancements for the final release of the game. Check here to see if your PC is ready for Battlefield 3.
    • This is also the recommended and enhanced driver for Batman: Arkham City and RAGE.
    • Contains a fix for the driver timeouts reported with the R285 beta drivers.


    Seemes they didn't quite fix it yet... :nerd:

    BTW anyone know how the 275 drivers perform in comparison to the 285?

    I reinstalled my win7 once because of this problem and nothing changed :)
    I´m fine with older drivers but I´m just little annoyed by the fact that I spent a large sum
    of cash for a product who´s company makes this kind of small dumb mistakes (bad WHQL driver ?!? WTF).
    They´re supposed to be professionals, you know what I mean ? :)

    Great ! Now I get "Installer failed" message when tryng to install any driver version :(

    I actually had my first driver stopped responding error I've ever had with these drivers, believe it or not, never had one before. I was watching a youtube video last night and suddenly screen went black, then came back into desktop with a driver stopped responding error.

    Also, I have rage, and these newest drivers made the game look washed out, almost over exposed kind of look, was especially noticeable in dead city.

    I've always done custom install and clean install checked off whenever I load new drivers. So I went back to the beta drivers which I had no problems with, so far so good and rage looks much better again. Since I went back to an older driver I uninstalled the drivers and ran driver sweeper before installing this time around.

    Just figured I'd add my experience if it helps anyone.

    thanks.
    I just tried again with 285.xx drivers after format and win7 reinstall.
    no luck, BSODs again :(

    Just joined after finding this thread and wanted to add that I encountered the same BSOD with 285.62
    ---
    Intel Core i7-2600K
    EVGA 025-P3-1579-AR GeForce GTX 570 HD 2560MB (x2 but hadn't enabled SLI yet after the driver update. These have more mem than reference 570s)
    ---
    I actually played BF3 for about 5 hours without any problem. The next day I tried to show a friend what heavily modded oblivion looks like in stereo 3d and got a BSOD after maybe 15 minutes. After restarting we were able to play for maybe another hour or two before hitting a BSOD again.

    Later enabled SLI and tried 3dmark a couple of times and it worked the first time (higher score than before in fact) but froze the second time (no BSOD though). Same overclock as before seems less stable.

    I have both 570s overclocked to 780mhz which had been very stable before.

    On evga forums maniacvvv pointed out:
    http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?&m=1287284&mpage=2

    I'm going to try following his advice and see if I can eliminate the BSOD issue.

    That might not be too far from the truth.

    I also experienced driver resets every time I use OC settings that were stable in previous drivers, but whenever I'm back to factory clocks (doesn't matter if it's Nvidia's default or factory OC'd) it's stable all day long; no more driver resets.

    So do you think its threaded opt. fault for their BSOD?

    Its been enabled since 275.xx for all games and thread started didnt have any problems with 275 or 280.xx:nerd:

    If that is the case, then I'd get BSODs even at stock clocks, in which I didn't and still don't.
    To be honest, I've never had any BSOD but driver resets.
    This is on a clean install, not by updating an older driver installation.

    In any case, for my MSI TFII 560 Ti, the higher the OC the faster is the interval between driver resets (which also resets the clocks to BIOS defaults).
    I've tried upping the voltage to 1050mV still no dice; any slight OC from BIOS default clocks would eventually cause a driver reset.
    I planned to try higher voltages but for now I just can't be bothered to do it.
    Too busy IRL; weekend's over. =b


    [edit]
    Seems that this card's GPU is brickwalled at 950MHz.
    Been folding with that clock for half an hour or so with no driver resets (yet), along with playing a video on DXVA.
    Anything over 950MHz (like 960MHz), -pft-, driver reset.
    Didn't happen with previous drivers, though; dunno.
    Maybe someone else with the same GPU could test it out?

    ...yes, I retract my statement about not having any time; I'm just that curious. =b

    I've been getting timeout error, black screen, blue screen errors, driver stopped responding and a memory execution error all with the 285 drivers...

    I had to go back to 275.50 to get rid of those problems.

    Hi guys!
    I just registered to write this. I bought Palit GTX580 3gb yesterday especially for BF3 and got BSOD on latest drivers(285.62) while booting. I managed to play BF3 with that drivers only before first reboot. The words "pissed off" is a nicest description for my mood. And today i flashed my card with that bios http://www.gainward.com/main/vgapro.php?id=454 (thx TheHunter) and the miracle happens! BSODs are completely gone. I hope this will help someone.

    sorry for bad english :)
