    did you install the drivers through windows update? or did you also manually install them by right clicking in the inf and choosing "install" ?

    Exactly, you are guinea pigs. That is what you signed up for when testing Win 10.

    Nice win10 FTW..

    It will need to take another 1 year after release of win10, for MS and nvidia to endless update their drivers for win10, and for GPU's working in win10, vice-versa.

    By the time we will have a bug-free windows 10, another windows will be in development.

    Happens right now with win8.1, vs. win10 development.

    After testing more games, the 349.65 are totally unstable : BSOD with SLI, and driver randomly crashes without SLI. Maybe it will run better with the next Windows 10 build ? I'll try again.

    For now, back to 347.52 without SLI.

    These drivers are extremely unstable and i cant believe they are on windows update, i know were supposed to be beta testing this stuff but they can at least make the damn driver stable enough to run windows and normal stuff like chrome. i had 2 more BSOD out of nowhere and i am getting completely random colors and glitches/artifcats in some games. also every game performs 40-50 fps slower than the 347.52 driver, what a joke!!! and i wasted my bandwidth downloading this crappy driver.

    I wonder why these are so problematic for some people. I haven't had an issue.

    Unfortunately, I dont play shadow of mordor, I played BF4 and COD AW with them and they are fine.

    After running a few programs, my idle vram usage was 1798mb, and Windows 10 was using + on top of that for other programs.

    Thankfully I found a way to restore the old Windows update section of the control panel giving you the ability to hide updates again. Open Regedit and go to the following.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/WindowsUpdate/UX
    There is a key in the UX folder and another one in UX/Settings. Change them both to 0 and that will re-enable the windows update settings in control panel where you can hide the updates.


    I only tried one game, Elder Scrolls Online. However I had major graphical artifacts after about 20 mins, and the framerate started to get worse and worse. No problems with it under Win 10 with 347.52 driver so I decided to go back to that for now, and hide the Win 10 driver from Windows update.
