    Keepers for sure, good benches, few problems, but overall very good... now if they just fix pal-dvd subs it would be a great driver...

    BFBC2 crashes or gets all white (and eventually crashes) when I select 4xMSAA in-game. 2xMSAA or 8xCSAA is OK. 3rd time this happens with 197.25

    EDIT /// (might have to do with CPU OC. :bang: It was 8hr Prime95 Stable today...and I increased FSB by 2 MHz after that :) 18MHz more than tested before. Anyways, I got the nvm.sys BSOD playing another game, totally blaming my OC for that. Will try to replicate the 4xMSAA crash/all white with STABLE settings)

    If you adjust the AA from the menu inside BC2 it makes the screen white. It does this with all drivers for me, once you exit the game and reload it, the game loads fine and the AA settings show the new changes you made.

    Yeah, I had the white screen issue while changing AA from within the game itself but it doesn't happen it you change the setting from the main menu.

    Can anyone help me with a problem.
    I have been having this issue "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"
    Before screen go black and after some sec it restore and works, always happen when I play a game. But now just yesterday I got this and now instead of coming back, my screen go black and I get bluescreen, or game get flicker and artifacts if I close game in time I wont get bluescreen.
    I have tried so many version of driver and also use DriveSweeper but still won't work. Can't seems to find any solution on google.

    Maybe the card doesn't like your overclock anymore, maybe the fan and cooling system is just all dusty or the thermal grease has dried out. If you already checked those, your card may indeed be faulty.

    Problem is that card is not overclocking at all. And it always seems to have error with this file "nvlddmkm.sys"

    Have you checked your temperatures under load? Are they any different to what you saw before?
    If the error only appears after you've been gaming for a while then I'm sure the card is just running too hot.

    Yes I have been having monitor my gpu temp and it seems to be like always. I also use 100% just to make sure it's fully cooled. It only happen when I start a game, suddenly get weird color and than blackscreen after some sec it give me bluscreen with "nvlddmkm.sys" error. But if I close the game before it go black, than everything is ok.

    I am not OC the card, but I use RivaTuner to check temp and adjust fanspeed. Also tried uninstall but still the same.
