black screen crashes

Post by watapus » Tue Jan 08, 2013 11:12 pm

If you're using nvidia cards and are in the 5xx-6xx series you might have this happen to you


The new nvidia 310.90 drivers are causing black screens and nvidia is working on a fix but they say to revert back to the 310.70 drivers which doesnt have this problem. This is how I got my crashing to stop. Hopefully this doesnt happen to you guys. But if it does just simply revert back to the older drivers. There are multiple threads about it on the website.

BLAH! I got my pc cleaned off enough to try and play and it kept crashing and crashing and finally I restored windows and re-updated a bunch of stuff and cleaned the virus again and now it doesn't crash......... and I just checked and my drivers are back to .70's.... and I KNOW I upgraded them when I was cleaning crap up and remember for sure having .90 drivers load....

so I con-cure - stick with the .7's

I was getting really frustrated, I thought maybe my 2 month old card went bad on me... really glad it was just some silly drivers.
