The GPU load went from 60 to 70% but the fps stayed the same.
i was wondering if anyone has had problems when logging into Windows? I am running Win 7 x64 with 470 SLI. Since installing these drivers I've noticed my Welcome screen goes into what reminds me of 8 bit color and then the screen goes black and then I have my desktop. Other times my screen just goes completely black and then computer restarts. I get a BSOD message when I log back in.
This does not happen every single time but often enough to be annoyed. These drivers have caused it to be more frequent than other builds. It started with 258.96 and I tried every beta build since.
Try a driver before 258.96. If it still happens, then it isn't a driver issue.
your card? your geforce TNT 16mb?:biggun:
i praised the drivers for the performance increase a couple days ago and all was fine, now i'm back to 258.96 whql.
reason: the new 260 drivers cause a sort of frameskip every 5 seconds in a game, eg. in Just Cause 2, performance increased but the game is ...skippy, with 258.96 smooth as a baby bum.
and this goes for all games i tried, so sod the increase in fps, the 258.96 has been fenomenal since their release and i have no bugs, performance issues or problems, not even in Fallout New Vegas, no white box or anything.
the 260.xx generally has been kinda disappointing as they introduced a couple of issues that weren't in previous drivers.
Little workaround for MoH:
(C:\Users\user\Documents\EA Games\Medal of Honor\Multiplayer\settings.ini)
and set: Bloom=low
That reduces flickering to a minimum (on my rig)
Then they are also not meant for 400serie video cards, the 260 runs **** with
movies when i run SLI, and there are more people here that has the same
problem, and problems are gone with Geforce Win7 x64 258.96 WHQL, and i had
some times Drivers not working error.
No problems here with these drivers, but I don't have comparsion to the older revisions.
thx for a explanation !
I have black screen at the logging. I disable the hd audio according to a post on evga and now I can enter windows and no freeze or black screen, at least during all this day. But as soon I try to enter gothic 4 black screen again with freeze. Anyone have this same problem?
No go for me. Folding@home fluctuates a lot, from an avg. of 10000ppd it drops to 5000ppd, games are crashing even the temps are low. Nothing OC'ed. Card - GTX 460.
I have had a similar problem since setting up my SLI. if you see my earlier post i've had this problem since the 260 series released. As someone suggested, roll back your drivers to 197 and see if it still happens. I did this yesterday and it is the longest I have gone without a BSOD or just plain black screen. I had to recreated the SLI profile's for my games but so far no crash! I now get the white box problem in Fallout NV
Bad performance since 260.xx with Crysis. But Crysis Warhead works great :'(
This release seems to be ok for games but I get a lot of desktop flashing when opening and closing folders and when starting and stopping programs.
Am still getting this stupid warning in far cry 2 with the 260.99 :bang:
I would check your clocks. When I used the 260.89 drivers, the core and shader clocks on my gtx 470 were not going up to full speed while I was folding or playing any games. And I had prefer max power set.
Adaptive power seems to be wonky in almost every situation. (in my experience)
just ignore it, looks like it recognizes them as 60.99 instead of 260.99..
These drivers screwed up my workstation... Zotac 9400GT 32sp model.
csrss.exe would use all of the CPU, everything would go insane and use up 100% of CPU, removed the driver and all was fixed. Works fine on my desktop w/ 9600's though.
I think that warning should be your windows is too old, please update them LOL
