Ok, it was indeed a lot more then standard.
I managed to break my Nvidia Update installation.
Everything installs fine except Nvidia Update, and Nvidia Update Components.
How I Did It:
Everything worked fine till suddenly it didn't :nerd: Sound crackling and stuttering right at desktop.
So I rebooted and baaam - no Nvidia hardware installed.
I somehow got my NV hw to show up (used system recovery and driver sweeper) and reinstaled NV driver, but the original problems continued.
Then I booted my Win 7, and low and behold - same crackling and unresponsive system in Win 7. So I concluded it's the HARDWARE, right?
Reseated my RAM, GFX card and cables which magically healed my system and everything started to work fine as before.
But due to screwing with system files in the process, I can not get Nvidia Update to install if my life depended on it.
Manual deletion, Driver Sweeper, Safe Mode, tried every trick in the book...
Everything works fine, but can't install Nvidia Update, which is a nifty little thing updating my profiles when available and all.
Seems to be a frequent and rather old issue:

Pretty pissed off right now :bang:
EDIT: My newb thread over at NV forums: https://forums.geforce.com/default/...impossible-to-install-windows-8-all-drivers-/
Oh and thanks for the new driver...
Just installed these on Windows 8 and as expected still no Surround support like in Windows 7.
- When locking the screen, it still has a messed up picture that doesn't scale properly and is half transparent.
- Still no options for centering the taskbar
- Still no options for maximising to single screens (instead of maximise spanning all screens)
Oh well, maybe some day they will fix this. Shouldn't be too hard, but I understand #3 and #4 took a long time to get sorted in Windows 7 too...
maybe stupid question, but...
why u guys always delete the previous driver? (unist.,driver sweeper etc..) i always only install the new drivers over the old ones and never had any driver problems...
I never do it
Always just regular Custom Installation, sometimes Clean, sometimes not.
And it has always worked beautifully for me.
But I "lost" my NV hw, and theFawk was I supposed to do. Well maybe listen to my own advice and still not use 3rd party, but I wasn't thinking clearly.
I have to agree. In fact I think driver cleaners are a complete waste of time.
Thanks for the heads up.
yes you are right maybe 1112 or 1100 but again test it for yourself for me getting under 1112 in games I get crashes very likely. So its no harm to use min 1125 as in games card doesnt go often under 1138ish.
Lately I am starting to think the same. At least in regards to GPU drivers.
They returned back to r310_00 branch,
Does these drivers fix the taskbar in windows 8 in a tri monitor setup?
when installing driver select: custom > clean install
you can even save your settings with inspector.
As I just said a few posts back
So, no, this isn't fixed yet.
They're ok in BF3 (64player TDM Noishar Canals), much better then initial r310_00 310.33 or new 310.70.
Edit: Winamp visualization is still not working right. Now I really suspect is something with 310.xx and WDDM 1.2.
Everyone's invited - come to my thread and offer some advice, or just flame me :cry:
IS A BIG ISSUE, WE NEED TO FIX IT
but driver fusion don't work properly, this program need to buy because is not free
Thanks, downloading now and will check to see how my 690 is working with FC3.
Yes, it deletes so much you gotta reinstall Windows.
Just uninstall thru the control panel, no need for a system destroying sweeper tool.
