    I've had that random black/white screen issue for quite a while now as well, but with Waterfox (essentially the same as Firefox). Don't really know if it's an issue with NV's drivers or on Mozilla's end but I decided to switch to another browser as the issue doesn't seem to be getting a proper fix anytime soon...

    Otherwise the driver runs very stable.

    Looks like my issues with Doom have been solved after the Steam client updated itself. I guess it was a problem with Steam then and not the drivers. Oh well, it's not the first time that NVidia's drivers have been blamed for something it had nothing to do with :D

    I did get a hardlock (complete freeze) while playing Destiny 2 and had to reset the computer. When I checked the Event log there was no relevant info.

    For those who have updated to CU -- is it worth it? I've read reports of stuttering in games since CU, and then there's the HDR shenanigans (I do occassionally hook this box up to an HDR OLED).

    Edit: This is here and not in OS forums as at least one of these is a driver issue.

    It's still horrible, I love this kind of games but I've had it uninstalled, the game stutters like crazy, however Prey works perfect.

    Horrid stutter and low performace in online games. I've resorted to dualbooting with Win7.

    If you want to use HDR then you're better off waiting for 1709 on 1607. HDR is pretty much broken in 1703 and probably won't be fixed, ever.

    As for the stuttering - I see no difference between 1703 and any other Win10 version.

    This is exactly why I haven't been able to use any driver past the 382.xx series. Hardlocks with zero information. Reverted back to all stock clocks after first crashes, yet they continue. Civ VI, GoW 4, Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Diablo 3, DOS:EE and GTAV have all given me reliable yet unpredictable hardlocks/total system freezes. The performance boosts are nice, but I'd rather play a stable game even if it runs a bit slower.

    I remember when the Witcher 3 first came out, and back then I was running two GTX 980s in SLI mode. Since the Witcher 3 was so GPU intensive, my usual GPU overclock was completely unstable, but even after reverting to stock clocks, I was still suffering from instability with hardlocks and freezes, sometimes with and without driver errors.

    Anyway, I fixed the problem by using DDU to clean install the drivers. Sometimes when a GPU suffers from instability due to overclocking and the system hardlocks or crashes repeatedly, it can damage the drivers. That's been my experience at least.

    That makes no sense. How do you "damage the drivers"?

    Well perhaps "damage" was the wrong word. Corrupted would have been a better choice I suppose. Drivers can be corrupted like any software, and once it's been corrupted, it will always be unstable and prone to errors.

    Not really, the only thing that can change is your environment, already installed software will not change unless you actually modify it. Seems to me like you're just making stuff up. How exactly do you think one can "corrupt" their drivers? I'd like to note the 1,800 posts you have here too, btw.

    Ok? This is rather alarming. I personally have not had these problems before (at least not that I remember) so it concerning when reading that other have the same thing. Hope that nVidia is on it, thought it must be hard to hunt a bug of this kind if it's completely random and has no traces of ever happening.

    Could still try the DDU solution.
