    Yeah he should be on here on his weekend instead of enjoying his time outside of work doing real life things.

    Get a ****ing grip of yourself, should you be sacked for trying to get information on an issue you didn't cause?

    Idiot.

    I can't believe some of responses being posted here .
    ManuelG posted here to get help, so they can track down better the issue with a system that is easy reproducible crashes .

    IMO, If you can't read and understand first post, don't post here or it just turns into every other driver xxx.xx one .
    It won't help anyone,

    You ungrateful sons of .... He is actually trying to help you guys, are you really that stupid? I experienced some crashes with the previous driver when I had TW3 and Chrome open, sadly I can't come to 'Murica right now :p

    I've had *desktop* crashes with 2 machines, one running a GTX580 & the other a GTX960. PrecisionX is only open when a game is running, and no crashes there. So with NO precisionX or Afterburner running, I get complete driver crashes with videos playing in firefox (no chrome in background), firefox completely hard locks (black inside it's window), chrome & firefox together = crash again etc. Nothing else running in background except Eset Nod32 & Adobe CC app...

    Not a single crash in 353.06 WHQL and older drivers. Only performance boosts. :) at my GTX 670 (heavily OC'ed).

    Im using precision x as well for years. I truly dont know why people get crashes with newest drivers...

    I had one driver reset earlier with Chrome open, hardware acceleration on, afterburner on and overlay enabled, 353.06, while playing League of Legends. It's not something that happens frequently, however.

    Also it's mostly one dude losing his mind. Sounds like a young teenager. Report his posts and ignore him.

    I don't install geforce experience. Don't think its G experience causing the issue.

    I also don't think it's G Experience ... with latest G Experience and 350.12 no problems. Get errors when using drivers greater than version 350.12.

    Not having problems with Chrome (Version 43.0.2357.81 m), MSI Afterburner (Version 4.1.1.7625) and GeForce Experience (Version 2.4.5.28).
    I'm up and running on the 353.06 driver (without the 3D Vision drivers) and played 80 hours of Witcher III, I had 2 CTD's back with patch 1.02 when I first started playing the game, and had no CTD's ever since.
    Chrome doesn't crash either, I don't use any plugins.

    And I just got my first driver reset with only Chrome open. Weird. This is on a very fresh Windows 7 install, too. I wish I lived near the Bay Area and could have you guys take a look but we are talking like one crash per day so far, not something you're going to be able to reproduce except through normal usage.

    Upped the polling rate on Afterburner and if I still crash again at some point I'll try not using it at all for a couple days. Thing is, it's a great utility. If the driver is conflicting with it, I'd prefer to just rollback to a different driver.
     
  13. Seems a lot of people have MSI afterburner in common with these issues, not saying all but just glancing across these forums. Personally, using a utility Zotac made called FireStorm, it's really light, low profile and hasn't seemed to conflict with any NV drivers including 352.86+ I do recall having issues in the past with some drivers and afterburner. Anyways I got tired of precision and afterburner and ended up with firestorm. It's simple but has enough and it's driver friendly up until what I've seen.

    EDIT: of course afterburner has more bells and whistles don't get me wrong but worse case could always settle for something else as NV resolves whatever the conflict here is. Not sure if firestorm is manu specific but then again a simple flash can fix that.

    Now that crap about "it is Afterburner" is spreading across the forums. Ignoring the facts that the same TDRs are having place with EPX, ASUS GPU tweak, GPU-Z and naked systems with no tools running. :( "Thanks"a lot to those who actively assist build myths about "MSI AB is common with these issues".
     
  15. You're welcome, that's my reply for a dumb post. I'm just voicing an opinion, in no point did I state "the fault is with afterburner" I merely voiced an opinion off of what I'm seeing in these forums. Need I explain myself ? No, but what the hell ... anyways why fret? NV will debug this and flesh it out. Eventually they'll have the sample size they need in the area they want and be able to tie down what exactly is going on. Don't act like I post without thinking or for no reason but ****s and giggles. "moderator" anyways. Don't take this personally I'm just a defensive kinda guy

    Well I tried the MSI Afterburner polling rate fix (6000) and so far no crash from 2 - 3am and no crash/driver has stopped responding from 8 till 10am. That's having multiple Chrome windows open, youtube etc

    Will test it more today

    If there is some problem inside the driver causing it to crash randomly when graphics card state is requested via NVAPI by tools like AB, EPX or GPUZ, then you're just minimizing chances of seeing it via increasing polling rate.

    Post without thinking is exactly what I mean. Especially considering that you add comments like "I do recall having issues in the past with some drivers and afterburner".
     
  19. I got what you meant, and that's why I got offended, because why the hell do you care, so I said something, what are you going to have a bad day now because of it? Big deal. So I'd had issues in the past with certain software, does that mean I'm not allowed to comment, or that my opinion is worth less than yours? **** you, get a grip this is a public forum, people are merely exchanging viewpoints and ideas. Honestly if the technology was here, I'd post a memory dump of my brain during "I recall having issues..." just to satisfy your pointless banter? bud say whatever you want after this but you're just showing your ass.

    Unwinder there is no need to take this personally. We are just trying to figure out where the problem lies. We are not going to suddenly stop using Afterburner. It's a great piece of software. It's probably just a coincident sure but I don't seem to get crashing with it turned off. That doesn't mean there is a problem with your software. Just something in the new drivers that is not playing well with it.

    We're here to try to help ManuelG figure out the crashing problem, we're not here to personally attack you.
