Nvidia drivers windows 8.

I have a GeForce GTX 550Ti card and have been experiencing crashes on my PC. Not only that but get a temporary black screen before and after watching a video. Especially HD videos. My first though was PSU as the PC died with no blue screen. I've already bought a new PSU in case the problem is not resolved and will wait and see.

From the Nvidia GeForce Experience program, under my rig I selected view full system requirements which brought me to this page,link. Selecting the drivers tab I used the manual search selecting the series and OS. I installed the 314.22 - WHQL version 25/03/2013.

It seems my problem is fixed as no more crashes and no more flitting black screens prior to waching a video has happened. I've also hidden the Nvidia driver update in Windows update.

Just thought I'd post in case someone else is having similar errors.

Thinking it's now a PSU problem but so intermittent it is hard to know. When I have time will install a new 700W PSU.

Dang it all, since the 8.1 update everything seems stable again. Even reverted to the latest Nvidia driver. New PSU still in box :)
