By providing your information here, you may also help others who may be experiencing the same issue you are. The more information we receive from you and others, the easier it will be for us to reproduce this issue in our labs and provide a fix through a future driver. Please provided the following information we request as best you can. Alternately, you may provide this same information through our NVIDIA Display Driver Feedback Form from the URL below: http://surveys.nvidia.com/index.jsp?pi=6e7ea6bb4a02641fa8f07694a40f8ac6 Please provide the following information as best you can: 1) Graphics card/GPU make and model: 2) Is this a driver regression? If yes, what was the last driver version which did not have this driver bug? 3) Operating System: 4) Is your graphics card manually overclocked/factory overclocked? If your graphics card is factory overclocked or manually overclocked, we recommend that you lower the clock speeds of your graphics card to NVIDIA reference clock speeds and then make another attempt to reproduce the issue you are encountering. For graphics cards which are factory overclocked, you may use a 3rd party utility such as eVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner to adjust the clock speeds of your graphics card. Our NVIDIA Products page lists the NVIDIA reference clock speeds for each of our GPUs. 5) If your issue is specific to a game or appliction, please provide the title and if possible version of the software 6) Describe the display driver issue you are encountering and if possible include step by step instructions on how to reproduce this bug. Please use the knowledge base article "How to provide valuable feedback to NVIDIA" as a guide to help you include information that will help us root cause the problem. http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3141 7) If your issue is a performance or (micro)stutter related problem, please check your "Power Management Mode" setting. If it is set to "Adaptive", switch to "Prefer Maximum Performance and apply the changes. Then attempt to reproduce your issue. If you are still experiencing the same performance issue, please make sure to verify that you have indeed tested your application with the "Power Management Mode" set to "Prefer Maximum Performance". For more information, please visit: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3130 8) Software/driver issues can sometimes be specific to a users system configuration. Please provide your system information so that we may attempt to match it as closely as possible. CPU make and model: Amount of system memory: Motherboard make and model (if OEM system, please provide your PC make and model instead): Motherboard BIOS version: Monitor(s) make and model: Sound card make and model: 9) If the driver fails to install during the install process, please provide the driver you used to install, your OS and language and if possible a log file of your install process. Instructions for creating an install log below: -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:NVIDIADisplayDriver313.95Win8_WinVista_Win7_64 -Run the following command: setup.exe -log:"C:NVlog" -loglevel:6 -We will need the file generated by the setup installer in the c: vlog directory. Also, please send us the setupapi log from here: C:WindowsINFSetupapi.*.log -Please email these log files to driverfeedback@nvidia.com Last but not least, if your notebook is not supported by this driver and would like to request that your notebook be added to our NVIDIA Verde notebook driver release, please file a request in the official thread below: [url]https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/534575/geforce-drivers/official-nvidia-verde-notebook-gpu-driver-request-thread/[/url]

[Quad SLI][GeForce GTX 690][Crysis 3]: There is a drop in performance during the cutscenes compared to gameplay. [1240915] Is this also fixed for a single GTX 690 card? I cant test right now (@job) If someone could confirm it would be great for my impatience to go home :)

Has RAGE been fixed yet? The black flickering artifacts on GTX600 series cards (which can become REALLY distracting)? I've been waiting through about 4 or 5 driver releases in order to be able to play this game again. I only just registered today so I could ask this question. Thank you.

Scrap that ... RAGE has STILL got the black flickering artifacts (in fact, worse than before) on my GTX670. ManuelG, can the driver team PLEASE look into this. I can remember seeing someone else address this issue at least 3 or 4 driver releases ago. I mean, is it just unfixable, or what? :(

Hi, I have bought a gtx 690 with a CPU fx8150, RAM 16 gb and disc SSD 128GB, the problem is when I play the first five minutes of the game Tomb Rider with the new 314.21 driver BETA, the game returns to the computer desk, closing all the game. It´s important to highlight that I have made a clear setting up, I would like to know if anyone else has suffered the same problem with these new drivers.

Observations since installing. 1) No option to add Notification Icon to Taskbar 2) Tomb Raider 2013. Monitor randomly goes into standby with No Input Signal message [s]appearing if TressFX is turned on in graphics settings.[/s]. regardless of settings used (high/Low TressFx on or off). 314.14 Driver was more stable. 3) Brightness and Contrast is 'off' and un-responsive from in-game menus. E.g Aliens Colonial Marines is now incredibly bright. Reducing brightness in-game has no effect. I can set brightness to 0 and still game is too bright. Colour saturations in the game are now too high. Noticed similiar issues on desktop background. Have neither the time nor the patience to start playing about with Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, Hue etc. to get Display configured to previous /preferred settings. Rolling back the driver I could see this particular issue was resolved immediatelty. Single GTX 560 Ti
