I only noticed it on MetroTwit, but the latest drivers (WHQL 320.something I think) caused overheating in Windows 8 (and reboots) so I was already rolled back to 310.70 which was suggested after some intensive Googling.

 

Windows 8.1 comes with a Microsoft certified Nvidia driver at 325.something and caused loads of black stripes on the MetroTwit window, rolled back to 310.70 and I don't have these problems anymore, hopefully this helps someone! :)

Did you only notice the graphical errors in MetroTwit with the 325 drivers though?

Yes. If left long enough it made the window unreadable. Since downgrading I haven't had that issue.

 

Edit: When I first upgraded, my PC blue screened in the night and rebooted. I had that with the newer Windows 8 drivers too, but I'm too lazy to crack open my case to see if the fan needs cleaning out :p

It's an issue with the driver. nVidia have revoked it and asked people to downgrade.

 

It was frying cards in certain configurations :\

Ah cheers, will skip it then seeing as it's related to Windows 7/8 and already a while back.

 

I ran into problems immediately after auto-upgrading to 320.18 and found the same sort of topics on the issues. I've disabled upgrading for now. Seemed 310.70 was the widely suggested one, but others are recommending others as well.

 

What card and ver are you on?

Hardware venders and they're crap drivers ruining it again for us all.  I'm still waiting for Intel to update it's ATOM drivers so I can go ahead and install the preview on my Samsung Ativ Smart PC 500T tablet.

To be fair, Intel even on Ivy Bridge hardware sounds like they're causing BSODs on the upgrade.  Intel really needs to step up their game on drivers.  AMD and NV have a misstep here and there but they usually work...

Not as far as the intel atom support on select devices goes.  It's some issue with drivers for the IGP.  There's workarounds for the language issue that some are having but that's a different matter.

I'm running the 326.01 Forceware drivers with my (refurbished) GTX 550 Ti and having nary a single problem.

Forgot about this, I clean installed Windows 8.1 and don't have any issues with 326.01 (from Windows Update) anymore. Dodgy upgrade from Windows 8 /methinks
