    From your own post quote; the guy rebooted and then had the problem. There are also 3 reported cases where this happened and EVGA Precision X wasn't involved. Ofcourse, if you want to go the absolute path that's not my problem tbh. They must all be lying right?

    As for Nvidia acknowledging the problem...is Manuel Guzman a noob aswell?

    That's on official GeForce forum btw, just incase you think it's some quack.

    "We are still investigating this issue. I am terribly sorry that it is taking so long. When I have more information to share I will let everyone know. For now if you have an Alienware laptop with a Samsung/LG panel, we recommend not installing EVGA PrecisionX on your notebook:

    Anyway, I'm done here. I'm sick of having to prove everything to some of you.

    Well it looks like its laptop driver and that precisionX app specific.. So Imo not really a deal breaker for everybody.

    According to what you posted here, Dell and nVidia are both saying it is the overclocking utility precision X. Which would make sense, since stock drivers are incapable of overwriting the EDID.

    Precision has the option built into it to overclock your monitor, whether the monitor can overclock or not.The driver simply exposed the flaw.EVGA is to blame in this instance imo.

    I just installed these yesterday and no issues whatsoever. Do I need to worry about my 970's kicking the bucket because of these drivers? They're only about 5-6 months old. This is what I get for listening to an eVGA rep recommending these drivers. Nice going NVidia and eVGA!

    no need worried. those fella burned their cards due to heavily over-clock & nowadays the ambient temperatures is freaking hot.

    my place here is 30~35°c. FYI, even my plants & cow grass also dried up (almost dead) expect cactus still goin strong.

    Why have you decided that they're not affected? Are there the exact same laptop models with the same LCD panels but with AMD GPUs? Do they run Precision?

    So that quote is NV's acknowledgement of the issue? The one where they're saying that they're still investigating and haven't actually found anything? LOL

    If it were as simple as those forum posts are saying then it wouldn't be hard to reproduce, don't you think? Thus it's highly probable that it's not as simple and it's unlikely that the drivers are even to blame for this.

    Facepalm. Manuel G doesn't say they haven't found anything? You just made that up.

    An Nvidia representative posts about the issue and they're investigating...if this isn't acknowledgement, then, please tell us all what it is then? Some random post? lol

    It's ok though. You want to be hard-headed on the issue and it's fine.

    I'm not getting into the core of this discussion, but an nvidia rep could post and say they're investigating the death of my pet gerbil after I installed the new physx runtime and it still won't make it any more related to the issue( dead gerbil in this case)

    It strikes me as odd that a graphics driver flashes eeprom, unless this is specific to a laptop driver I don't understand how it's possible

    It is laptop only (I hope) problem.

    If Manual G responds to a found problem here at Guru3d (which he has done), is that acknowledgement? Using your logic, it's not, right? This is clearly moving goal-posts tbh.

    He acknowledges the report, not that nvidia drivers caused this, I'm not moving goal posts ;you claimed the drivers did this, all Manuel G has done (according to you, I have no idea who this guy is) is say he's looking into it, his response could well be 'doesn't seem to be driver related', or it could be that it is.

    there is a big difference between a support rep doing his job, giving you a generic response "we are looking into this", that every single support inquiry gets, and an official statement by the actual company hot shots.

    you can compare this issue to the 3.5+0.5gb issue with the 970. Now that is a case where you can say Nvidia as a corporation gave an official acknowledgment.

    Also

    http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=5253480&postcount=304

    can't get much clearer than that.

    I actually read the whole 32 page thread on the issue, and the linked threads on the same issue on notebookreview. the post i'm quoting above is what I got from reading it all. feel free to correct me if you think I misunderstood something.

    Neat. However, the write up and download links are for PC's for this thread. Perhaps a separate thread would be better for the issue you want to discuss.

    "We are still investigating this issue. I am terribly sorry that it is taking so long. When I have more information to share I will let everyone know." = they haven't found anything. You're not too good with official acknowledgements, are you?

    Yeah, exactly. That's some random post from a technical support guy who can't tell if there's even an issue there and just goes on to recommend something which *seems* to be helping to avoid it. There is no official acknowledgement of anything there but the fact that NV's driver feedback team is doing its job - which is hardly new information for anyone.

    Finally got around to start playing the witcher 3 at long last from yesterday , and this is where my problems with this driver has started , for every hour or so of gameplay i'm getting display driver has stop responding , and then recovers , in windows event manager i see this (Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered )

    Ive now reinstalled 362.00 and had no further episodes of the driver stopped responding,
    so there is definitely something going on with this driver plus i've also noticed that on my c/drive i now have two lots of VulkanRT folders versions 1.0.3.0 and 1.0.5.1 so ive uninstalled them from my PC for now .

    :wanker:

    i'm going out right now, ill leave witcher 3 on and when i get back ill tell you results
