    I upgraded to this driver for over a week now and while I didn't get any crashes in any of the games I played at all, I did witness crashes with while in desktop and with nothing loaded. I just boot up to the desktop a few mins ago and the system was frozen a few minutes after I was afk. No blue screen or anything. Just plain old freezes. I remember seeing this kind of freeze ever since I upgraded to 326.41. Once I was afk after loading up the Neverwinter launcher program and when I came back, system is frozen as well. While I have no crashes with any of the game at all while in games like Neverwinter Online, Borderland 2, Legends of Van Helsing,etc.. the random desktop freeze is definitely an inconvenience. I read that the crashes and freezes occur a lot with the older cards like the 400 or 500 series card. I guess it is Nvidia's way to tell people to upgrade.. :bang:

    Anyhow, I remember I was using the 326.01 and didn't get as much desktop freezes as this so probably going back to that or if not then back to 314.22 until I can upgrade to a 660 or the 760 soon. I also have no hardware acceleration on since it will randomly freeze Firefox.

    We have fixed the 36 hour bug. It will be in our next driver.

    That's good to know. Hope to see the new driver soon. Even though I am planning to upgrade to a new card soon, I'll probably keep the 460 on another machine so new driver that fixes the random freezes will be great.

    Thanks. :)

    I really hope that the problems with the fermi cards 400/500 series are solved in the next driver i wrote a lot on it in the nvidia forums its not nice if people buy a product and can't bennefit from new fixes because the driver ctd a lot and have to go back to 314.22 all the time.
    I use now the latest beta just to bennefit from the fixes for Bf3 but i have to deal with the ctd all the time and the whole 320 serie drivers also gave me from time to time BF3 in colors is this problem caused by the ctd problem or a different problem?

    some days ago i was playing BF3 with this driver played the map gulf and all the 3 cranes on the map turned purple after i was killed and spawned back they were normal again.

    Hope this is getting fixed too.

    Maybe Nvidia can give us a Beta that include these fixes so that we dont have to wait 2 weeks?

    I would tend to agree with that, especially if NVIDIA know the issue is definitely fixed; this driver was originally intended for an early August release after all. They've done this before so why not now?

    Couple of updates. We have fixed the 36 hour TDR issue (35 hours, 47 minutes, 29.01888 seconds). The fix will be in the next WHQL driver release. Also we are adding a couple of fixes for the desktop TDR issue some users are experiencing.

    Are you working on any improvements for Metro Last Light?

    ManuelG said:
    We will be including a new Physx software with the upcoming driver that should fix the drop in performance with the Physx software in our last couple of drivers.

    Is there any chance of a beta driver release with these fixes before then?

    ManuelG said:
    Not up to me but I'll ask the driver product manager.

    ManuelG updated with:
    We will in fact release a BETA driver a little early and re-release it as WHQL once it completes certification.

    And the yellow/green roads will there be forever.

    Thanks xavier2k5. That is good news for those with TDR or Metro: Last Light issues. As I said, certification means very little at the end of the day anyway as Microsoft only test that the drivers work with Windows, they don't (at least this is my understanding) test games.

    It's too late this week for NVIDIA to release a beta as they don't generally release them just before a weekend in case there are issues. Hopefully though, we'll get them early next week. Fingers crossed as I want them for the Sniper Elite V2/NZA stability fixes as I intend returning back to those games next week.

    By the way, I've noticed that a number of Techland's older Chrome engine games such as Mad Riders, nail'd and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood have black & white background videos/cutscenes and loading screen that are not just UPSIDE-DOWN but also FLIPPED!!! This issue only occurs on Windows 8 and isn't present in their newer games such as Dead Island: Riptide or Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.

    Is this a Microsoft issue or something than can be fixed in a graphics driver update? If it is a Windows issue then there's zero chance of Microsoft ever fixing it. It doesn't affect the gameplay; it's just more of an annoyance than anything else. It is a truly bizzarre issue that I've only seen so far with Techland's Chrome engine and to date I haven't been able to find any workaround or fix for it (short of reverting back to Windows 7)... :3eyes:
