[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.

[b]Driver fails to install/complete errors:[/b]
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\295.73\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

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.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/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.

installed well, alice returns is loving this set.

feature request again/still from the .51 beta thread: would like the driver to re-poll the card connectors when 3dtvplay/vision is enabled/disabled via command line (dcc fun and games). so my attached samsung ue55d8000 tv on hdmi does 2d 24hz properly when i want it to. the edid and inf are in the other thread. as it stands - when 3dtv is disabled in the gui/command line - everyone's televisions remain expecting a 3d picture and 99 times out of 100 it's a substandard image with a load of 3d processing no one needs or wants. the only problem i forsee with doing this is folk will complain that windows moves their icons and open windows n apps around on the disconnect :-P

edit: i never specified - but i'm talking 1080p here :-P

keep 'em coming, nvidia :-)

There is a major bug that has plagued the 290 series driver regarding some source engine games and still persists in this driver. This bug occurs in Portal 2, as well as Left 4 Dead 1. It does NOT occur in TF2 or Left 4 Dead 2. When I first get into the game, my fps will be hovering around 90-130 or so with vsync disabled by default. The only way to get the fps back up to 250-299 where they should be is by enabling vsync, then disabling again. Once this is done, fps jumps back up to 250-299. FPS stays there until a new map loads, at which point it is back to 90-130 fps and you must repeat the process to get FPS back up to normal. This only occurs in SLI mode. I have to enable single GPU mode in both of these games in order to correct the issue. (i get 250-299 fps normally in SLI or Single GPU mode)

System specs as follows:

OS: Win 7 64 Bit
CPU: Intel 2600K
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Pro
RAM: 16 GB Gskill RipjawsX 1600Mhz
Video: Asus GTX 580, EVA GTX 580 (SLI MODE)
HD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
Monitor: Acer 120hz

Please correct this! This has happend in all 290 series drivers but does not happen with previous drivers.

EDITED WITH MORE INFO:

In game settings in Portal 2:

Fullscreen mode
Anti Aliasing Mode: 16xQ CSAA
Filtering Mode: Anisotropic 16x
Wait for Verticle Sync: Disabled
Multicore Rendering: Enabled
Shader Detail: Very High
Effect Detail: High
Model/Texture Detail: High
Paged pool memory available: High
Laptop Power saving : disabled

Nothing is forced in Nvidia control panel except for VSYNC always off. I have tried with "use in game setting" however and it made no difference. I have tried messing with the graphics settings to see if anything in specific triggers the issue and I can't pinpoint it. As stated earlier the only thing that corrects the issue is if you switch vsync to enabled in game and then back to disabled, then voila, instant 150 fps gain. Hope this helps Manuel.

Still having screen flicker in skyrim.
Still unsure whether this is a driver bug or af Skyrim bug :,(

I have no artifacts in other games though

EDIT : @ ManuelG
It is hard to give any specific details for this issue, the best i can do is this :
At certain areas (especially near water) my screen will start flickering when i pass a certain point, if i then go back and forth a few times over that specific point, i can often (not always) reproduce the issue.
I am running the game at Ultra with 16x AF, 4x AA, no FXAA - i have forced no options and/or effects through the nVidia driver.

Earlier today i tried to capture this issue with FRAPS, but as soon as i hit the record button the problem goes away (In fact i can stand in the exact spot where the issue occurs, and even have the issue, then hit record, problem goes away, stop recording, problem re-appears immediately) - making me believe that this might in fact be some kind of issue with Skyrim when running high FPS.
I have a Asus VG236H 120hz Monitor, and it actually seems like this issue only happens when skyrim is in fact running at 120fps

Yes i can provide a savegame, but my current playthrough is "heavily" modded (yes the bug happens regardless of mods installed, already tested that), so dont know if you can even use it ?

Double Edit:
Using the FPS Limiter from nVidia Inspector (set the max FPS to 60) SEEMS to have fixed the problem, which also fixed the games totally haywire physics engine.

My displayports wont work at all with the latest betas/WHQL. They only work with 285.66(if i install from the gigabyte cd i got with the cards)

Running on 2x Gigabyte gtx 560 ti 448. I can see the bios screen but as soon as it starts windows it gets black.

Have tried switching the cards but it stays the same. HDMI works fine but i want to use my displayports for 120hz !

Ps: im using a Samsung S27A750D monitor.

Thank you nvidia for releasing 295.73 driver. This fixed my "signal out of range from all of the previous 290 drivers. So far it looks good.

You've answered your own question and included a link that has the explanation and you already know about it (twice)?

60hz = 59.94hz and 59hz = 59.94hz. There's no difference between the two. Your own link explains that this is by design and that no action is needed. In conclusion, I don't think you should ask why (again) :(

Performance in Battlefield 3 is so terrible with these drivers and a GTX 570. I'm going back to either the beta drivers or the previous WHQL. I might even sell this card and get an AMD card. Two months after the game is out and Nvidia drops support for it in the drivers. How awful.
