    Do you loose your whole ICC profile settings or just the video LUT (loaded into the VGA card from the ICC profile upon boot)?

    If it's just the LUT, try a LUT manager like that of DisplayCAL (DispcalGUI), that might be able to detect the loss of the custom LUT and reapply as necessary (if instructed to do so).

    BTW, I stopped using video LUTs years ago but I remember a lot of games used to clear this LUT while switching to fullscreen exclusive mode. I even remember having some kind of DLL injection patch to bypass this behavior. And then a few games might even loaded a custom (non-linear) LUT to alter the tone response curve, so keeping both (and thus achieving the goal of displaying the picture as intended - at least in terms of white balance and tone response) was simply impossible.

    381.78 Black Screen

    My system just rebooted when browsing the internet and when Windows was running again, I got a black screen on my monitor (still had an image on my UHDTV) in extended mode. I managed to get the picture back by switching to Duplicate (Clone) display. And then (using the Windows Key and "P") I switched to my UHDTV only and got a black screen on that.

    381.65 gave me a higher idle temperature of 60c (temperatures are fixed with 381.78 (37c)). Both 381.78 and 381.65 seem to not to be able to maintain deep colour on my UHDTV and it reverts from 12bit to 8bit at 1080p in NCP.

    Back to 378.92 as these worked fine and I'm not even sure what benefits WDDM 2.2 brings me anyway.

    I like others will wait for a newer WHQL and hope Nvidia and Microsoft have fixed these problems.

    EDIT***Just had same problem black screen problem when I rolled back to 378.92. I guess the black screen issue was introduced by the Creators Update. You don't get the HDR Display option in Windows Display settings with this driver also. A multi-monitor set up is cool but it does suffer issues. Vsync was broken in Duplicate (Clone) display mode with older drivers for a long time for instance.***

    This driver still stutters in Diablo 3.

    Reverting to 376.33, fixed those issues.

    Yes same problem with full screen playback of videos just as you say and someone else said about games starting in window mode also, I thought it was to do with this window 10 update as explorer seems very buggy with a few tabs open.

    Dam this driver is crap......

    Im getting a lot of Driver has been recovered issues and crashing driver issues with this nvidia driver release...

    the previous driver was working perfect for me and the only issue i had with that was HDR LG 4k TV where by i was getting screen blacking out and coming back and blacking out then BSOD TDR_VIDEO on windows 10 so i hoped this would fix that issue but i guess not, nothing has changed apart from them screwing up peoples monitors with them.... hell even CRU no longer works with these drivers either....

    im going back lol

    i cant even run TITANFALL 2 as soon as i start up the game, i get a instant driver recovered issue or couldnt create texture issue then driver crash lol

    These ones didn't play nice with my overclocks. I got lock ups and crashes when I tried to run FireStrike. The 381.65's are no issue. I'll pass on these.

    It's Futuremark fixing a bug in the benchmark. Kinda shows how relevant these measurements even are.

    Windows 10 Creators Update has many many bugs, a lot of Games are affected and some other programs + more stuff.

    Running 381.78 with no issues

    Upgraded to Creator Update for Win 10 yesterday.

    I had installed the 381.65 installed and then I installed 381.78 right over.
    Boots fine and temps are normal.

    One thing I did do was disable the telemetry for Nvidia.
    NvTelemetryContainer from services and Task Scheduler.

    Will report any issues.

    PEACE

    All I can really do is laugh at Win 10 users that used to shove it in the face of people using 7 or 8.1 or whatever. On cancer sites like NeoGAF it was all we could hear in not upgrading to 10 right away: why wouldn't you want the best OS? I guess you like to have worse performance? You must not be the smartest tech guy out there if you are still on a dated OS? It's free there is no reason not to upgrade!

    And here we are: Win 10 is a crock of ****. Hardly any improvements, compatibility problems in very certain places, privacy concerns even worse than 7, horrible forced updates with bugs, et cetera. Win 10 is basically what Vista is to 7 only to whatever comes next. I have no want or need to screw up my perfectly running PC. And I am so glad I don't have to deal with it.

    I predicted long ago that just installing that thing over my present OS would have been a nightmare, and I really just have no need to go through the pain of a newer OS just because. I have literally no reason to upgrade. My PC is fast, boots up fast, and has everything I need. I also like the look of Aero for the most part.

    With Windows 10 1703 15063.138 - 381.65 and 381.78 everytime I restart the computer, Output color depth resetting to 8 bpc ! when I put it on 12 bpc.

    Fix this please. Output dynamic Range only works after restart if you change it couple of times, or else it will stop working on Full. you won't see any difference until the windows is restarted it will stay on Limited even when choosing Full.

    That's when using Nvidia Color Settings.

    Use Default color settings just put everything on 8 bpc and Full, and I need 12 bpc and Limited. :X

    Great, but why are you raging in a driver thread about an OS? Why must we be abused by it?

    If you don't mind my asking, why would you use 12 bit AND limited?
