    turn off SLI, Ghostbusters doesn't use it anyway and that is what is causing your crashing most likely.

    Hilbert already deleted two of your previous posts because you advertised your web site in them.

    That was the one warning we gave you. Bye, [zaeb].

    Installed these yesterday. All seems OK, 3DM Vantage scores are the highest since the early 180s; Prototype runs great @ 1680*1050, all max.

    Strangely though these defaulted to GPU PhysX acceleration: 'Disabled' for me, had to turn it on manually.

    Back to 185.85 for me. I discovered that CoD4 and Fallout3, the ones which I play most, turned out to be nearly unplayable at max settings, so huge drop in the framerate. I never use any 3DMarks, so cannot compare, but loss in framerate was abt 20. Reinstalled 185.85 and all is back to normal.
    Don't know why, since I understand, not much has been changed in the new driver?

    Could this be somehow related to the infamous 59 Hz bug?

    I have experianced an error similar to this when going from 185.85 to 186.18. However, the error stated that 'Stereo Server had not been properly installed'. After continuing the installation and rebooting into normal mode i experianced a BSOD. Unfortuantly I have forgotten what it said, I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled using this method again:

    (Safe mode)Uninstall physx drivers + nvidia drivers
    Reboot into safe mode; run driver sweeper on AGEIA - Physx + Nvidia - display
    Reboot into safe mode; check if any files remain in driver sweeper(there wasnt) and then install 186.18 drivers
    Reboot into normal mode.

    Through both installations I experianced the 'Stereo Server has not been properly installed' error. Also, it had appeared that an executable related to the stereoscopic 3D driver had not been deleted and had to be overwritten on the second try.

    I've looked around the forums and on google and could'nt find anything on this besides from the person i had quoted. Does anybody have any infomation on this issue?

    I don't know if the system is stable. I have tried furmark, GRID and M2TW: GRID and M2TW seem to have much lower fps than normal, around a 20 decrease. Furmark is reporting the same fps as it had been before.

    I apologise if this should be made into a new thread.

    Thanks in advance.

    For the most part this driver works well, but Im still having a problem when I first log on for the day, my disply is set to the wrong rez 1600x1200 vs 1920x1200.
    This also happend with the last drivers I was using, but I thought I had found a fix but I can no longer find how to do it.

    I'm getting the stereo driver hasn't installed properly as well. I installed these to see if I got a fps boost in Ghostbusters, but it still gets massive frame drops.

    Also, RivaTuner isn't picking up that I have a new driver installed. Anyone else having these problems?

    Is anyone else getting shadow and smoke flickering effects with this driver? I was on the 182 drivers, and did not have to deal with such a thing. Specifically, the smoke and shadow flickering happens in TF2 and CoD5.

    This driver has been good for me so far. Its stable, and I haven't noticed any decrease in performance so I'm happy.

    Left 4 Dead freezes for me with these. In the beginning I thought it was an issue on my end, so I started down clocking my gfx. Good thing i saw the post about this problem, since i just got the game and i thought my card was the problem. Freezed like 5 times now, one of them ended up in the driver unable to recover, so I had to manually kill the game. That happened once. All the rest of the freezes the driver recovered in time.
