Just installed 302.71, and they seem to crash as well. When I start a game of starcraft 2, the screen goes black, and comes back and core/memory settings on the gpu have reset. unfortunately.

Not that I start looking around, it turns out all the drivers I have tested do the same, Crash the drivers. :( Can't find WDDM anywhere either.

Well then only hope will be nvidia offered driver which they pushed back for a while.

Hopefully the new drivers are released next week. None of the drivers I've tried fix the crashing issues.

try the 301.42 drivers, works pretty damn well here once I turned down my overclocking a bit.

301.42 is Windows 7 only I believe. Have you gotten any crashes after installing it? With all the drivers I've tried I keep getting strange multi-color artifacts on screen and NVIDIA driver crashes. Most of the time the driver recovers. Only once I had to hard shut down my PC. The errors happen randomly.

they don't.. I did some research and it seems all drivers after 289.xx cause the system to crash when playing a video on win8 CP or RP for my GPU. its universal ive read many ppl with the same gpu as mine having this same problem.

Obviously I can't speak for every setup but I installed the latest drivers Windows 7 drivers - 301.42 - and haven't had any issues with video playback or games. That's particularly impressive considering I have an SLI setup. All I can do is recommend what works for me.

No problems at all. no artifacts. Boot win8 up with "disable driver signing" install the 301.42 and reboot normally, all works just fine.
