[quote="Shinra358"]Drivers are overclocking the graphics cards. It all makes sense now xD[/quote] In fact, im convinced not only overclocked the card (i wish was that simple) is the whole energy managemente who gets mad...if only was a o.c issue, with evga precision or msi afterburner we can "force" a constant voltage or some kind of profile. But its more complicated than that, or at least i think so. ManuelG or any other nvidia visible head are M.I.A, that is a very sad thing under my point of view. What is happening here? My card is a marvellous piece of hardware, im not complaining or whining about that, but im very dissapointed with the post-sale service facing costumer.... Thats encourages me. 314.22 until they dont run latest games at all (i can live with some lose of performance, but...dont RUN AT ALL?...come on). keep in markers this thread, and come to visit time to time...(so i can practice my poorly bastard english, more than other thing) Buenas noches y....buena suerte desde España colegas...

nice to see this after many months of disappointing and waiting, but what i want to ask is will this driver screw up my card 3rd times? 1st and 2nd times I'm lucky cause my card still under warranty, but not this time.

OK - I have taken Manuel up on the new test driver. Will post back with results. However - it might take days and days (one update took me 5 days to crap out - then it did it 3 times in 1/2 hour).

[quote="psikofunkster"][quote="Letol"]I was having these same exact issues and had to use 314.22 for stability. If you're using Firefox, turn off hardware acceleration under advanced options.

I'm using a GTX 560.[/quote] No, that's NOT a solution, the issue is for Internet Explorer too, again the culprit is not firefox but the nvidia drivers. LOL really? an expensive GTX 560 card (in their time) and disabling my browsing acceleration? really? What about forgetting my 560, forgetting nvidia drivers and using instead my intel cpu 3770k integrated graphics with my accelerated browser? [/quote] Try disabling hardware acceleration in IE. Laugh all you like, but I'm the one who isn't experiencing problems anymore. It's the only change I've made since I had these issues. Why should I care that it's a workaround fix if my system isn't crashing anymore? That or the newest drivers fixed the issue. Which, looking through recent posts, isn't the case for most people. Don't knock it till you try it.

but at 331.82 the fix its very simple unistall geforce experience because gives very soon NvStreamSvc errors and pc freezing and after unistall no freezing anymore

[quote="Shinra358"]Why are there no laptop test drivers?[/quote] Nvidia releases 'reference' drivers for mobile GPUs, but can't support them since they are customized and tweaked to fit laptop design specs way more than desktop GPUs. Or something like that. I've sent in dump files and other bug reports and never got any response although I saw desktop users got the standard advice to set 'single display...' and 'prefer max perf...' in NVCP. Saw some posts from other laptop users that were directed to their laptop maker when they asked about the ongoing 400/500 issues. It's a pretty standard thing actually. Intel support won't talk to you either if you mention you bought one of their WiFi modules and installed it yourself. I wasn't paying attention and installed the last test driver even though it was also for desktops. It installed with no problems but it was one of the worst for TDRs and freezing. No idea if it was so bad because it was a desktop build or because of other factors. I posted in the driver feedback thread that the latest release seems to have fixed my issues (560m). I haven't had a single problem so far with browsing or desktop apps and I've even re-enabled hardware acceleration on Firefox v26 Beta. I was installing Geforce Experience with every new release since July or so, but this time I did NOT install it, so now I'm not sure if it was GFE causing the issues or the drivers. Another poster (besttt) also says not installing GFE cleared up the issues, so I think it's worth trying. One of the first things I did after every previous new driver install was to STOP and DISABLE the stupid always-running 'shield' streaming system service that GFE pushes on every system, so I'm not sure how it could have affected stability unless some other piece of 'shield' crapware didn't like the service being shut off. GFE is bloated advertising-heavy garbage in my opinion. I only used the update notifier, but I figured since I've made a habit of coming here regularly for most of a year now, I'd probably know about an update before it did anyway. Don't have an SLI rig so the game profiles are annoying in a lot of cases making games run at low resolution even though they work fine at native res. Not everybody wants max FPS at any cost. It might be worth installing for ShadowPlay - if it wasn't restricted to 600 series and up. Hey, if you want to accuse Nvidia of pushing upgrades, here's your chance! I suppose it could depend on some exclusive Kepler hardware feature but somehow I doubt it. It'd be nice to at least have the option to record video, even at reduced FPS or something.

[/quote] I just installed this driver fix and i noticed that: 1. it doesn't install PhysX 2. it doesn't install HD Audio So far the driver is stable, i will test it a few more days. I guess that HD Audio and/or PhysX is part of the problem since all drivers newer than 314.22 have updated versions of these? Another thing that i see changed in release notes of newer drivers after 314.22 is that [u]Includes support for applications built using CUDA 5.5 or earlier version of the CUDA Toolkit.[/u] and 314.22 and older drivers [u]Includes support for applications built using CUDA 5 or earlier version of the CUDA Toolkit.[/u]. So my guess is that problem with tdr's was caused by one of this 3 things: cuda 5.5 support, PhysX or HD Audio driver. Anyway the problem seems to be fixed, finally! Thanks
