    I'm curious why this one wasn't fixed since its just a quick push from the branch its fixed with.

    BTW: Nvidia employees have more or less resumed work at the nvidia campus in the last couple months, the back log of issues publically and privately will be combed through.

    Developers are cooperating to identify and resolve this either from the game side or the driver side, return to a previous driver for the time being.

    Hello,
    the 496.13 driver introduced corruption on the 2D desktop. Black polygons 1mm to 4mm appear on 2d desktop, numbering 4-20 in count. The black polygons seem to appear surrounding the side any app windows that may be open. Issue may not present itself in 3d applications.

    Many other users in the 496.13 thread report the EXACT same issue.

    Using DP1.4 in my case, 2x 3090 RTX FE. Issue is present with both or single card. I don't overclock.

    All ailments of 2D desktop black polygons go away when reverting to a prior driver (prior to 496.13).

    the 496.49 driver does NOT solve the issue introduced in 496.13.

    You either stick with 472.12, or upgrade to Windows 10/11 and be able to use newer drivers. (Nvidia's rules)

    This has been determined to not be a Driver bug, its caused by Chrome itself being entered into some experiment.

    @ManuelG hello
    The bug that has troubled me for a long time is fixed in 452.06: When the system sleeps and wakes up, I start CSGO. Snow appears on the screen. But it appeared again on 496.13. Does 496.49 fix this BUG? I want to keep the latest driver version, thank you

    unless you fill out the feedback form and are among numerous complainants for an issue, the likelihood of your issue being addressed is low.

    Tell me about it. It took them a year to sort the DSC issues when changing resolutions

    These drivers, like others, cause a hard reboot when it tries to install the gfx drivers themselves. Only thing to do is to use DDU and then reinstall.
    It says it was installed fine after the hard reboot but they obviously wernt

    this might be a seperate issue unique to your configuration, but many others have reported this behavior when doing updates through GFE, and it usually occured at the stage of installing HDAudio.

    That makes sense. Ive not always opted to install HD Audio so ive had times where it has installed fine.

    You really need to upgrade to Windows 10-11, I have no problems with either of those operating systems, just do a clean install though.

    yeah I agree I don't get why you would insist on staying on Win7.
    my FPS in BF4 way back when jumped a metric tonne when I switched from 7 to 8 even...that was years ago.

    I don't get why people tolerate the intrusive, spying, forced installs/updates, advertising nonsense of Windows 10+

    Windows 7 for whatever requires Windows, or Linux fo-evah!
