    Nope. But, I have been getting sporadic 1-4 Display port errors from the G2 VR via 3090ti.

    Weirdly, both my FE 3090s do not have this behavior, though, I've even changed GPU vendors (testing purposes) but the same error, so, that rules out OEM/AIB issues.

    I guess I'll have to wait a bit longer before selling off these 3090s. *sighs*

    Hello all,

    the flickering issue on Windows 11 build 652 safe boot mode is due to explorer.exe hanging. At first I didn't relate the issue with the last preview update, anyway I recognised immediately the problem and a workaround to it!

    I just did this:

    1) extracted DDU on a desktop folder.
    2) rebooted in Windows 11 safe mode without network, the flickering issue started.
    4) opened Task Manager with Ctrl+Shift+Esc keyboard combo and killed the explorer.exe process. The flickering issue stopped.
    5) still in task manager, i ran the DDU exe using the "File/Run new task" function by navigating to its desktop folder previously created.
    6) done the cleaning process, i rebooted the system with Ctrl+Alt+Del function.
    7) Profit ;)

    No need to reinstall/restore the OS or uninstall the update!

    Me too, I think, if the slider button is white, it's on, isn't it!? Even it it's off I've not noticed anything untoward.

    This driver is just horrible lots of frametime spikes, shuttering and gpu usage going nuts for no reason.

    Same here, first time in a long time.

    I'm going to try to roll back to 512.15 to see if they stop.

    I don't know what you mean with flickering, but I had some sort of subtle flickering happen on Windows 10, normal desktop not safe boot. I couldn't stay/work in front of the monitor for more than an hour without my eyes starting to feel sore, when I have no problem staying in front of the monitor all day long. My monitor is a LG 27UL650. I reverted to the 512.15 today, and I worked at my machine all afternoon without my eyes feeling bad or anything as usual.

    this appears to be a client regression caused by new bugs in the 4.0 update and is server interactive.

    So for the first time ever, I had a system freeze on the Windows lock screen, of all things. Computer was idle overnight (locked, not sleep), sat down to start day and hit a key, the monitor came on as usual, but then the system immediately froze. Only things new were 512.59, and ms preview updates, from Tuesday. nvidia gets blamed first, so back to 512.15 for now.

    It would have been much easier to run in safe mode+network. That does not manifest the bug. :D

    I had a green screen and scratching sound while playing youtube movies, i thought it was a driver issue, with the previous driver and this driver, but after updating now to the latest version of MS edge
    the bug is gone finally so it was an Edge issue , i'm happy the issue is solved it was very annoying it, looks like a gsync issue.
