    Download Nvidia driver of your choice or use 180.43
    Uninstall the nvidia driver you have, reboot into Safe Mode (tap F8 as your PC boots and select Safe Mode), run DriverSweeper and clean Nvidia driver files, reboot and install Nvidia driver and reboot when prompted.

    Should work now, if you have problems update DirectX and/or reinstall FC2.

    Avoid medical cabinets on walls if you have BSOD, or update soundcard drivers, or lower hardware acceleration on your sound card to Basic Acceleration (Control Panel>Sound and Audio Devices>Advanced>Performance.

    - Edit. That should be a little clearer.

    OK so if i really understand what your trying to say is that if i'm running a game @ low detail i should see those buggy texture......So what if i'm playing Crysis @ All Very High @ 1920X1200 @ 2AA, There is almost no way to get any higher than that.

    Since i had i nice boost with these driver it would be nice to keep them but i'm not gonna start to play with every config files i found.

    I'm pretty sure nVidia's gonna fix that thing.

    Well I have come to the conclusion that 180.43 completely and utterly destroys all overclocking ability for me. I cannot run any of my games for more than a minute or two with my regular OC on that with all previous drivers I could play for hours on end completely stable. I guess I'll play some games now that don't need it and wait for a better driver to come out!

    Because it works for you doesn't mean it will work for everyone else. We all have different rigs. It doesn't work on mine either. And like most folk I prefer to have control over the fan speed. Let's take the horse blinders off and use the peripheral vision.

    So its a mixed bag in terms of stability and overclockabilty going wrong? I think i will pass on this one :/

    Faster drivers => better optimization => more GPU stress. I keep failing to understand why people expect performance boostes and the same overclocking limit as before with new drivers.

    This is the first driver EVER that I haven't been ROCK SOLID with my OC on. Just a bit of a shock as its never happened before and 180.42 ran fine with my OC. The only reason I am not using them is because Farcry 2 refuses to play for more than 10 minutes on them, but everything else works out just great. Seeing as I highly doubt that there is a big difference between .42 and .43 I'll just leave this one to .43 being bugged for now and see what happens in the next set. After all they are beta (not that WHQL is ever any better with nVidia).

    I'm not complaining I'm just stating whats going on for me to help out anyone else in the same situation. I am sure it is a problem with this specific set and not something that will persist in the future (hopefully).

    Tried the 180.43 drivers with Far Cry2. Works almost flawlessly on DX9 at least, haven't tried DX10. Settings below. I tried these settings only, I did not have time to really mess around with them...

    DirectX: Version 9
    Resolution: 1600x1050
    AA: 2x
    Details: ALL high

    FPS seemed to be as smooth as silk except for one spot when I was wandering around on foot alone, seemed to come and go however. No slowdowns during critical firefights or cinemeas.

    The roll back did not help me :(

    I'm talking to nVidia customer support via e-mail at the moment i hope they can help me fix the problem.

    WHAT!?! Far Cry 2 looks like GBA compared to Crysis! Crysis looks soooooooo much better than FC2!
