    Good to hear about that.

    And ya, kernel dump is needed for debug driver, the minidump only useful for debug software crash or you want to know which driver/dll causing it.:)

    what is the issue, I used 314 with the BF4 beta and only issue was a pop up window saying I am on old driver ?
    It played fine and was smooth in last days after all patches .

    Trying it out.

    That's very small compared to some I've had. I've sent in crash dumps for Dirt 3 that were .Gb in size. In the case with Dirt 3, they actually set it up so we could upload our dumps with FileZilla. You're also lucky to get a dump, I haven't been able to.

    Apparently some people have sent their cards in already, so they might not need anymore test cards. But if they do, mine is always ready for a trip.

    Exact same thing still happening to me. Same bugcheck.

    Might be time to give up the ghost and just ride out 314.22 until I buy a new card.

    Yeah, it would be great if we could actually make it give us some dump files..

    back to 314.22 it goes.

    Ya, that's what BSoD is better than hung, you can't get any dump for them to fix...

    Many people write problems in this thread that have noting to do with the firefox freeze/TDR problem.

    Talking about dump files of 600mb blue screens and game problems.

    people who say al the time i go back to 314.22 dont want there problems to be fixed.

    if people have other problems then freezes and TDR with firefox installed this can then easy be tested to uninstall firefox, if than the problems are still there then your problems have noting to do with this test version.

    If people dont have Firefox installed and still have problems what i would do is 1st check the hardware use memtest, maybe you need a better power supply or proof with screenshots your hardware and settings.

    i installed this test version and so far i can tell it fixed my freeze/TDR problem with firefox.

    there is no need to use firefox to have the same problem. firefox provoke it only faster.
    firefox not even mentioned for this test driver.

    Email from nvidia

    Dear NVIDIA GeForce Customer,

    I am writing to you because you have recently provided us with feedback concerning the desktop browser/application freezing issue affecting some customers after upgrading to one of our recent GeForce display driver releases. Our software team has just introduced a fix which has resolved some of the issues we have been able to reproduce in our labs and now we are asking customers who have reported this issue to us if they would be willing to test this driver on their system to see if it also addresses their issue. If you would be willing to test this driver for us and provide us with additional feedback, we would greatly appreciate it. This driver is only for desktop GeForce graphics cards and is based on our previous R331.58 driver release. If you wish to try out this driver, you may download it from the URL below based on your operating system:

    u didnt get my point.

    People come here reporting blue screen dmp file of 600mb and game problems like i wrote before they have to uninstall there browser and see if the problems are still there.

    cant be that hard to understand.

    I cant believe this i use win 8.1 also and the freezes are still there with every driver version after 314.22.

    If you had this problem before windows 8.1 then its still there.

    Nvidia came with this test version that has the fix.

    windows 8.1 didnt fix your problem because the nvidia driver has the bug.

    sorry but it doesnt make sens what you say.

    I just received a hard freeze, then an auto reboot, but no dump file was created. The display was awaken from sleep, too before that, though. Firefox was open, but hardware acceleration was disabled

    I don't really see how that would reveal anything new since the problem only ever occurs with drivers after 314.22.


    EDIT: I meant display and not PC

    oh, I am on Win7 Pro 64bit .
    Just DL BF4 and 314.07 works great here just like the beta , I didn't try MP out yet as was late getting it installed but ran through a bit of campaign and was very smooth , no issues with menus as I had to change setup (audio,vid settings) .

    If people unistall the browers then the freezes/TDR problem must also be gone, if people then still have problems then its doesnt have anything to do with this test driver and is the cause some other problem.

    i saw people reporting in this forum that they had no freezes/TDR with a 560 card because they didnt use firefox.
