Well at least there appears to be some good news in that there have been no reports of damaged hardware with the latest round of drivers.

yeah I don't know why I was having problems as seems everyone else is fine with 362.00 but it was not good for me for some reason,ive not heard of anyone else having problems with 362.00 though which is very strange,

syks sometimes you will have issues if you do not do a clean install each and every time you update drivers. On nVid they offer clean install. Not sure I trust the application but certainly a better option than not doing so. Most folks can get away with never doing a clean install but I like to be safe rather than sorry.

yeah there are a number of occasions where I have noticed that if I do simply install over old drivers that my performance took a hit. There are a number of software choices that allow you to remove safely old drivers. Nivid have one built in as I said. Tick the box under the list of options which allows a clean install.

Yep, choose custom and you'll see the option for clean install, just tick the box and away you go.
