Problem with Driver Version: 296.10 The Driver Crashes On YouTube
  1 / 4    
Hello Everybody

Since Updating to 296.10, When I watch clips on YouTube the driver crashes ... The Screen Turns Pink ... and you could only move the mouse cursor but the computer doesn't respond to anything. And the only solution is to do a hard reset for the laptop ... only the last time it happened the driver was able to recover.

Are you aware of this ? and how can it be resolved ?

My laptop is the ASUS G74SX with 8GB of RAM and Windows 7 64 Bit

thank you very much !

P.S: It doesn't happen everytime I play A clip on YouTube ... But when it DOES HAPPEN, It's always happenning when the clip is about to start.

just unistall the 296.10 drivers and get the version which you had previously, Asus will soon update the drivers again to fix the issue, just get the older drivers.

The thing is that I didn't download the driver from ASUS's website... I downloaded them from here (Nvidia's website)

And I see that I'm not the only one having this glitch

Hello everyone, I'm also having this problem,I don't think it's my hardware for two reasons.
One:It's only happening for me when I go fullscreen on YouTube.
Two:It never did this before I updated to the newest driver.

When and only when I go fullscreen does it happen, my screen turns pink with lines and dots everywhere, and if it recovers it says something close to "nvidia driver has stopped responding and has recovered", I can watch videos in the "small player" and in the "large player" but not fullscreen, and like I said, it's only happening on YouTube.

I also would like to add to that problem. I'm using 485m gtx, my problem is that I can't play a game without the computer restarting. It happens all the time after I updated the driver from Nvidia. I'm very surprised right now. How could you let this happen? I knew about the pricing and I still paid for your company card. Now i can't even fix the thing. I uninstalled it and install the known to worked 3 times, system restored 2 times, non fixed my issue. Please don't make me wasted $2300 laptop with this silly issue.

Yep now it's confirmed. I've got $2300 facebook machine. Just for installing the driver from its manufacturer website.

Yup same problem here. I thought I had burnt out a transistor on my card or something. Whew. I noticed it's only happening with youtube videos that I put into 720p + mode and lo and behold everyone's getting the problem.

I'll try and roll back to a previous driver in the mean time.
