Geforce R320.xx-R326.xx display driver stability feedback thread
  1 / 43    
Some users are reporting stability issues after upgrading their drivers to display driver branches R319_00 and above (i.e. R320.18, R320.49, R326.19, etc.). This thread is to capture information that can help us resolve all of the issues affecting stability in desktop use and games that some users are reporting. For normal bug submissions, please continue to report these in our main feedback thread: [url]https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/569894/geforce-drivers/official-nvidia-326-41-beta-display-driver-feedback-thread-released-7-30-13-[/url] For those with stability issues, please verify you are using driver R326.80. This driver adds numerous fixes to address some of the issues reported directly to NVIDIA from end users. If you continue to experience freezes or desktop application crashes with our most recent driver that does not occur in driver 324.22 or earlier drivers, here is the information I need from you: 1) System specs (GPU make and model, mobo make and model, CPU, power supply, if OEM computer the make and model, PC monitor(s) used, screen resolution) 2) Is your graphics card running at reference clock speeds or is it factory/manually overclocked? If your graphics card is a factory overclocked graphics card, can you reproduce the same behavior by lowering the clock speeds to NVIDIA reference clock speeds? 3) Applications/Games that are unstable with latest drivers (crashing/system freezes, etc.). If games, it would help to have a screenshot of your graphic settings for the game(s). 4) If you are located in the USA and would be willing to loan us your graphics card, please email me at driverfeedback@nvidia.com. This is only for users who experience stability issues with driver R320.xx which goes away if you revert back to an earlier driver such as R314.22. We will cover shipping costs both ways and provide you with a loaner card to use once we receive your card. I expect we would need your card for a period of 3-4 weeks. Due to complications with international shipping, we can only accept boards from end users living in the USA. For more advanced users, especially on desktop or while browsing Firefox, it would be helpful if you could provide us dump files from your system.

Even more so when viewing video in web browsers such as firefox. Returning from sleep mode also triggers freezes. Didn't try any games.

1) GPU: ASUS GTX Titan; CPU: Intel i5-2500K; MB: ASUS Sabertooth P67 (last BIOS) with integraed audio; RAM: 8Gb Kingston HyperX; PS: Enermax PRO87+ 700W; Monitor: Benq PL2400 1920x1080p; SSD Intel; Windows 7 x64 with last updates. The case is CoolerMaster HAF-X with good ventilation. 2) It was running stock. Later I changed the fan speed with EVGA Precision to higher rate. That resulted in lesser texture artifacts in Metro: Last Light. 3) AION Online was crashing with nvidia driver on start. I solved that by setting the compatibility mode at WindowsXP setting. Metro: Last Light has big texture artifacts with some time playing, like video memory overheating or some shader blocks. More agresive fan setting make it more time to appear. And it crashes randomly. Tomb Raider has the problem of some textures becoming black, and occasional slowdowns and crashes. Graphics settings are always set to max, or with Nvidia experience. All of that was not present on 314.22.
