    Can you give me the error that appears in the dialogue box...? Just saying "it crashes" isn't all that helpful.

    Yeah but I think it's due to my memory overclock...not sure yet, I keep getting 0x00005 exceptions which is a memory access violation. I've never had any trouble with Flash tho if that's what you mean...

    I have HW acceleration disabled btw.

    even with HW acceleration disabled I had crashes with certain videos in same websites. I solved it with Chrome, not a single crash in more than a week.

    experienced a weird issue with 12.8

    when resuming from Sleep, wifi connection can't connect. hangs.

    I wonder how a graphics driver can interfere with that.
    Went back to 12.7 beta, and don't seem to have the wifi issue.


    You guys try putting Windows into sleep mode, then resume, and see if your pc acts wonky in any way.....

    The 3d on my card looks good with 12.8 whol. It is not the best proformance but it looks good.

    I keep hardware acceleration disabled due to GPU folding. I was more concerned about issues such as corruption, BSOD, grey screen, etc.

    I'm using FF nightlys and I'm not having FF crashing issues...

    try them out. before doing so backup your profile directory usuaully under C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla

    if you can see the directories make sure windows explorer is set to show hidden files and folders.

    download 64bit
    ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o...t-trunk/firefox-17.0a1.en-US.win64-x86_64.zip

    download 32 bit
    ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/firefox-17.0a1.en-US.win32.zip



    on a side note these 12.8s are junk anyways they artifact like crazy under WoT.

    Yeah I've had a few BSOD's, but I've been pushing my rig pretty hard today just to see what it'll do....

    [​IMG]

    Not bad huh? :p Managed to get the NB up to stable 3000Mhz as well...


    E-peen waving aside, I've been overclocking my 6950 which gave me a couple of Grey/Red/Blue screens of death, so hard to tell whether it's the drivers or my not knowing when enough is enough.
    I can't get the GPU past 950Mhz without Fallout NV giving me red flickering textures.....


    My BSOD's were all PFN_LIST_CORRUPT if that helps. Mostly caused by memory issues but can be drivers also.....What kind of problems have you been getting?

    I haven't installed it yet. I've been a bit slow on updating graphics drivers this go round. I've been reading the driver threads to see if certain people report any bugs/flaws/etc that concern me. If not, I go ahead and update, otherwise I stay with the current driver.

    Tbh I never experience any of the issues a lot of people complain about, and this driver seems pretty trouble free.
    I've decided it was my overclocking giving me grief as I haven't had any crash since reducing my mem/NB clocks.

    I did have one issue while installing though, I'll just copy this from an earlier post....

    It sure seems stable (not getting driver failed errors anymore) but I feel like performance in BF3 has dropped for some reason... I swear running the game with 2x MSAA and HBAO on ultra very smoothly but now I have to turn AO to SSAO to get it running silky smooth (60+ almost all the time).

    So in terms of performance for diablo 3 is this the driver to have or 12.4b or 12.6

    I've run into a problem in Skyrim with this driver.
    When reading books the left hand page is partially transparent to the far left, resulting in the page behind it too bleed through and making the text all but unreadable. Turning to the next page and then going back again solves this problem, when applicable of course.
    This happens in most books, but I've actually stumbled across a (very) few that didn't have this problem.
    This is by no means a game-breaking problem, but rather an annoyance.

    However the compass and the xp-bar seems to be fixed, which is great.
