[b]Driver Feedback:[/b] If providing feedback on these drivers, please pay attention to the info we require at the bottom of this post. If you do not include this information, it may push the priority of your issue down or may make it impossible for us to reproduce your issue.

Please Note: Beginning with NVIDIA's R285 display driver branch, older laptops with NVIDIA's Hybrid SLI technology are no longer supported by the NVIDIA Verde display driver program. If you have an older laptop that uses NVIDIA's Hybrid SLI technology, please visit our software archive downloads page to download NVIDIA display driver 280.26 or older version:

[b]Providing Driver Feedback:
[/b]
Please provide feedback on these drivers here so that I may compile the information and pass it along to our software team. When you reply to this thread with your feedback, please include the following as best you can to help us reproduce the issue you are experiencing. Below I have broken down the information which will help us best to reproduce your issue based on the type of issue you are experiencing. I know it seems like we are asking for a lot of information but the more information we have, the easier it will be for us to reproduce your issue. Of course if have trouble providing some of the information below, that is fine. If you can add your system information to your profile's signature, that would also be of tremendous help as users will sometimes confirm a bug affects their system as well but do not provide any system information to assist us in reproducing an issue. Thank you for your time.

[u][b]Driver fails to install/complete errors:[/b][/u]
If the NVIDIA display driver installer fails to install because of some type of install error, please provide the following information:
1) Desktop/notebook make or model (if you have a custom PC, simply note Custom PC and provide your motherboard make and model)
2) Please indicated the previous driver version you were using
3) How was the driver installed?
-Express Installation
-Custom Installation
-Custom Installation with option Perform Clean Install selected
4) Is Microsoft UAC enabled/disabled?
5) Have you used any registry cleaner/optimizer/security tool since the last successful NVIDIA driver installation?
6) Are you using any anti-virus program? If so, which one?
7) If you can, please follow the instructions below to provide us with your installation logs:

-Open a Command Prompt window.
-Navigate in the Command Prompt window to the folder where the NVIDIA display driver files were extracted to. For Windows 7 x64 for example, it would be:

C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\275.33\Vista 64-bit\English

-Run the following command:

setup.exe -log:"C:\NVlog" -loglevel:6

-We will need the file generated by the setup installer in the c:\nvlog directory. Also, please send us the setupapi log from here:

C:\Windows\INF\Setupapi.*.log

Another user posted a simpler way for those not familiar with command prompts here:
http://forums.nvidia...dpost&p=1240721

8) Last but not least, we could also use a Process Monitor log. To do this, download the following utility and unzip it:
http://technet.micro...ernals/bb896645

Open the program and then choose "Save". The saved file will also help us isolate the cause of your installation issue.

Please note, the above does not include installation errors because the driver does not support your product. If you have a notebook which is not supported by this driver and you would like to request that it be added to a future driver, skip down below to the Notebook Display Driver Request section.

Thanks ManuelG, you're doing a great job. Driver team must be swarmed with legitimate bugs.

As with all the other 29x series drivers my screen goes black during the installation and my monitor reports the signal is out of its designated range of 1920x1200 60Hz.
I need to reboot Windows 7 in safe-mode and reinstall the 285.62 WHQL, the latest working driver.
Will write detailed specs later.

I'm a sad panda now.

Please Nvidia, take a look at the problem that affects some monitors (specifically the Samsung 2233RZ).

Some change done between 285.62 and 29x.xx makes it so that these monitors prevent the card (Gigabyte 560TI OC in my case) from entering idle clock speeds at anything higher than 60hz on the monitor. Selecting 100/110hz results the card always running at full speed, instead of downclocking to the 50Mhz idle frequency.

This was not the case with the previous 285.62.

useless driver i must say

BF3 is the only game installed on my machine at the moment and im still having:

- slow texture load which introduces stuttering&jittering (might be the game issue don't know, he110 RAGE :)
- the aliased edges of 3d objects and sprites are bugged
it looks like the "ladders" of an edge are aliased by smaller ladders and rendered backwards
i call it double aliasing (lol) i have Autodesk Maya installed and the same bug applies to the 3d grid which has that creepy aliasing too
- along with the previous issue goes that cartoonish outline, cell shading if im not mistaken, ugly
- framerate drops when lots of smoke and fire is rendered, every explosion is like a pain in the you know what, this also makes my eyes sore

cmon guys i believe in you

here's a screenshot of an improperly aliased scope, take a closer look at the edge of the scope where it "bends", both edges inside and outside arent rendered properly, i started to have it 3 days ago, didn't change anything in the system, maya is also affected by this, tried all versions compatible with my card still the same, out of nowhere, is my card faulty???

BTW no TDR on my card, only if i have the hardware accel enabled in my browser, but i keep it off so it doesn't bother me, look into this issue plz

i joined your forums only today cuz i've never had any issues with all my nvidia cards (geforce 2 mx, 3 ti, 4 mx 440 go, 6800, 9800) and now what

Does this driver not support the GTX 560ti? I noticed it wasn't under the list listing... and when I tryed to install it, not compatiable.

3) I had no TDR's with the previous drivers installed. (290.26 BETA / 285.79 BETA / 285.62 WHQL)

4) Costum Desktop Computer.
Installed motherboard: MSI P67A-C43 (MS-7673)
Power Supply: Coolermaster Silent Pro 600W
SSD Adata 60 GB (windows install)
Samsung Harddisk 1TB

5) Graphics Cards/Processors used in your Desktop:
GPU: Nvidia Asus GTX 560 1GB
CPU: Intel I5 2400 @ 3,1Ghz

6) Amount of system memory installed:

Same crap. 75Hz causes GPU to use fastest clocks all the time, Mass Effect 1 antialiasing does not work and now the control panel always ticks "Show only programs found on this computer" when I hit apply (that scanning system is pretty badly broken, it finds almost nothing and never Steam games). Back to 285.62 (damned Media Center/WMP issue is driving me nuts in this version, though).

Why I have issues with drivers newer than that? Damn it. Driver quality has gone down the drain recently.

Can you do a few tests for me please? Can you tell me if this still occurs if you remove one of the cards from your system? Can you try going back to R290.53 (make sure to uninstall the current driver first) and verify that you are indeed not still seeing this problem?

Thanks ManuelG, you're doing a great job. Driver team must be swarmed with legitimate bugs.

As with all the other 29x series drivers my screen goes black during the installation and my monitor reports the signal is out of its designated range of 1920x1200 60Hz.I need to reboot Windows 7 in safe-mode and reinstall the 285.62 WHQL, the latest working driver.Will write detailed specs later.I'm a sad panda now.

Have you tried connecting a different monitor to see if it does the same thing? If not, then I need the info I requested in the "Monitor/HDTV connectivity/detection issues:" section of my original post.

Please Nvidia, take a look at the problem that affects some monitors (specifically the Samsung 2233RZ).Some change done between 285.62 and 29x.xx makes it so that these monitors prevent the card (Gigabyte 560TI OC in my case) from entering idle clock speeds at anything higher than 60hz on the monitor. Selecting 100/110hz results the card always running at full speed, instead of downclocking to the 50Mhz idle frequency. This was not the case with the previous 285.62.

There is nothing I can do here. The timings before R290 were incorrect and as a result, were changed in R290 that results in the clock to run at full clock speeds for refresh rates higher than 60Hz. There is no reg key to change this behavior unfortunately.

^^That doesn't make sense? How on earth they were incorrect if the behaviour is absolutely garbage now and from user pow just fine before? They shouldn't "fix" something that wasn't really broken, in my opinion at least.
