    Just some random know-it-all dude,.. he was here too, but got banned later, because of the same know-it-all attitude.


    Ok he knows a thing or two now, after all these years, but still he's a know-it-all trolol xD

    He's probably paid by nvidia to chase people away from their forums.

    If that's not the case, then I guess is just some person with mental issues or severe social issues (or both?) who is obsessed.

    If its the same guy I know from IRC, hes just got a dislike of political correctness in dealing with people and doesn't seem to care what people looking to place blame think of him either.
    He was working in a tech shop, but i've not been on IRC for years, so i couldn't say if its still the case or not, but i remember him having a lot of time on his hands and was usually talking tech and tech issues with the engineer guys.

    He did consolidate all those 7 users getting TDR's and get nvidia onto fixing it, I think he might be ex-helpdesk, that industry is enough to destroy anyone.

    No problems with any apps or games for a day now. These drivers seem like a keeper to me!

    For the first time since installing FarCry 5 I had a CTD yesterday and today I have issues with Firefox freezing for 5 seconds.
    Back to 391.35 and Firefox is fine again.
    [Firefox]: Driver TDR error may occur when using Firefox. [2049523] ... try again and try harder.

    Nvidia's fix log is really misleading, that error was win7 specific.
    and its verified as fixed (so far).

    if you are on 7 you might have been getting the stuttering/gdi leak issue reported on the geforce forum.

    Does anyone here play Heroes of the Storm? Since upgrading from 391.35 -> 397.31, I've been noticing some weird artifact/corruption happening as seen in these pics.

    I'd feel better if knowing others are getting this too, so that it's a driver bug and not something else.

    Also some relevant info.

    Monitor identification geting screwed up with multiple monitors for as long as I can remember, I not sure if this is Nvidia driver thing FW code thing or Windows thing.

    But IF only DVI Monitor is connected.
    Windows identifies monitor as 1 and win+p seeing it as pc screen only

    IF DVI monitor and HDTV-HDMI is connected
    DVI Monitor get identified as 2 and Win + p see's it as Second screen only
    HDTV-HDMI gets identified as 1 and Win+ p see's it as PC screen only

    Soon as I disconnect the HDTV-HDMI
    DVI Monitor is seen as 1 and PC screen only


    it doesnt this bug issue what ever it is has been triggering my OCD for 5+ years. IS it windows the issue or the drivers? or how GPU fw is coded?

    I installed this 397.31 drivers seeing I was on the 390.77 drivers seeing I was playing uinstall the drivers game to trying fix this again, If i dont report back it means these works just as well as the 390.77 i was using.

    Can you try reverting back to driver 391.35 to confirm it is a driver issue and if the issue goes away, please post your in game graphics settings used and any NVIDIA Control Panel overrides used so that I can file a bug pelase? Also let me know what monitor(s) are connected to your graphics card and how each are connected (DisplayPort/HDMI/etc.)?

    I went back to 391.35 earlier today and the issue is gone, so its 100% 397.31. My settings are all maxed out via the "Extreme" setting the game options provides;

    https://i.imgur.com/IlYbfjc.jpg

    NVIDIA control panel is all on stock defaults, and I use two Dell 24" Monitors U2412M http://www.dell.com/ae/p/dell-u2412m/pd

    Both connected via DVI-D cables.

    And thanks for the reply!
