Had issues with the latest driver for my 8800GT and blue screens

Thanks for your post I installed this driver update a week ago and ever since have had blue screens and big problems with one of my picture editing programs.I thought the fault was with my Graphics card 8800gt but having read the information through your link its obviously the driver that's at fault.

Its now been removed and I have reinstalled the previous driver and now everything is working properly again as before .To be honest I don't know why I bothered to change it in the beginning should have taken the advice often seen on this forum "if it doesn't need fixing etc."

Thanks for that. I have a 7800GTX and the driver in use is The ones refred to in the link are 196.75 - a problem and 196.21 ok.
Not quit sure what to do !

Just looked at NVidia site - they currently reccomend 196.21. As mine is working ok I will wait.

I broke my own rule last week in never updating Graphics drivers until they have been out at least a month.

I have reverted to the earlier drivers. And have done another Acronis backup & transferred it to external drives again. If Nvidia expect me to update them again soon I will attack Nvidia headquarters with a JCB or USA equivalent.

I am now having a cup of tea to mend my frayed nerves.
