These would not work with my Gigabyte 680 in SLI. After removing these drivers there still is a problem with SLI. I have scrubbed it pretty well. Will have to reimage.
The computer that is messed up: Asus Maximus IV Extreme Mobo, 2 Gigabyte 680OC, 1000 watt Corsair Gold power supply, Creative X-Fi. (can always blame Creative, they are a good punching bag.)
Three other computers are fine: 560ti in SLI, 560ti and GTX285
My profile does not show this rig. It is a 2600 cpu
Seems my Green Videos happen with other players aswell.
I'm gonna try the previous BETA, since this is very very frustrating.
Same thing here man. Its absolutely something with the drivers.
Put in many hours of BF3 with the 305 drivers without a crash. Crashes were nasty with 306. Not a problem since I've removed them though.
Went back to 306.02 and my Videos are no longer turning Green and Skip to the end.
It's probably a combination of Driver, Flashplayer and Browser which causes this issue.
Using IE8 and Flash 11.4.402.265
Anyways 306.02 has the same performance as 306.23 so i'm good.
I just got a driver crash while playing Orcs Must Die 2, luckily it recovered but my FPS dropped to 15 from 90 capped. Restarting the game fixed it but I wondering if others have issues with OMD2 and this driver?
Did you try to reinstall flash player with 306.23? it can sometimes fix a issue or two.
About these 306.23
Doom3 with Sikkmod runs worse compared to 305.67 openGL4.3, its like some openGL calculations (extensions) aren't as effective. Also it kinda stutters when entering new areas, 305.67 was fine.
I did install Flash again but not a clean install by totally removing it.
Could give that a try, but i just installed 306.02 again and right now i wanna enjoy my Game ^^
Ill have a go at it tomorrow morning.
To anyone who was looking for that "process balancer" app to use with GW2, I found it: http://bitsum.com/prolasso.php
It totally works too. Add GW2 as a "game" and then enable game mode. Smoother camera and higher min fps in wvwvw.
Just a heads up that Norton 2013 seems to be using 3d acceleration which prevents enabling SLI as you cannot kill the process (have to do the same for core.exe on G15 lcd drivers). Only way around is a reboot and and to enable sli before NIS is done loading. Will have to be quite quick about it too
Ok so I don't know if this will help identify the issue with this driver or not but I can't play any online final fantasy game XI or xiv for very long without a random crash. my screen goes black and I get a message stating my driver stopped and recovered, and any videos I had playing become very laggy, and lose sound.
I've had no problems running either game before installing this new card, nothing else crashes while running on it, IE video's, web surfing or burn in tests. which is unfortunate since XIV looked freakin amazing on this card I had to go back down to my 550 for stability.
So I'm fairly certain XI runs off openGL, but I thought xiv ran off directx wish I knew more to help.
I´m noticing some freezing in Skyrim. The game pauses for a few seconds then it goes back to normal. It happened five times in about one hour of gameplay. Anyone else is experiencing this?
In time, I never install NVCP. Is this worth installing? What I lost if I don´t?
XI is directx 8 if i remember correctly, and XIV is directx 9, the crashes are a known issue with the current game engine.
It has to do with losing and reacquiring directx gracefully (something almost all game in the last few years have no problems with). Yoshi P (the director in charge of development) has stated it will be fixed in FFXIV 2.0. I know its really annoying it happens to me like 2-3 times a day. :/
regarding the youtube/video bug is that only occurring on 6 series cause so far last few days at least ive had no bugs at all with videos , games wise only played blops and all was fine
Crysis2 runs a lot better, but now got a TDR,.. It happened after i re-enabled tessellated water (from high to ultra) at Pier17. I played at my usual OC 900mhz (1.056v raised since r304, use to be ok at 1.049v) and ram 2260mhz (20mv), although I was playing at 930mhz/2260mhz without a problem one day earlier, but i didn't adjust advanced settings much (only object detail).
Also one strange thing by BF3, Noshar Canals (TDM) I ran at 880mhz (1.037v), ram at 2180mhz (10mv) and it caused black artifacts, when I OC'ed further to 900mhz (1.056v), ram 2260mhz (20mv) it stopped. It looked like 2180mhz was to much for 10mv.
Well bugger me. Three times tonight with the 304 driver set I've had the same crash but nothing over the weekend. It would seem it's not the drivers and it's the recent update we've had on Battlefield. I do apologize nVidia.
I'm going to put the 306 WHQL driver set back on shortly and *hope* that DICE release a fix for this annoying issue :/
How do you get this to work for GW2? I flagged the active process as a "game." Is that pretty much it? I don't really notice any performance boost unfortunately. Still runs fairly bad on my 690gtx even without many players around.
This guide is very handy for getting around GPU boost too. Didn't do nothing for me.
I don't think these uninstall properly either... people mentioned the driver files not overwriting properly... so I ended up reformatting, but then went back to 305s without an issue.
These driver doesn't work properly with some of the new demos on Pouet (http://www.pouet.net/)
These demos work fine with 301.42 but not 306.23 and 306.02
Running Win 7 x64
Both you linked are working fine for me on 306.23, same OS.
