I have the nvidea GTX 660 TI and they have issued a couple patches just over the last few days. I am not having any trouble though.

It's possible they are quite aware of the problem and are trying to fix it. Often fixing one problem causes a different problem on something that was working fine before. They may have released a patch that was needed to comply with some Windows update patch, and inadvertently messed up older cards that were relying on whatever driver feature was altered.

Best advice is to keep the older drivers so you can roll back to them when the new ones break things.

After reading the thread Noname posted it looks like it is only the older cards, and only this one driver series. But if you get it then uninstalling and reinstalling an older driver doesnt fix it, you have to reinstall windows (pffft...)

So windows updates continue to mess up perfectly good software as usual, and the blame falls on the nvidea software people, not Microsoft for putting out crappy OS's with 10,000 security holes to be patched later.

Microsoft should just hire hackers to do a year of penetration testing on their OS before they release them, so they can fix all the holes. Offer rewards for who can find the most holes. Extra points if you find holes in the server versions of the OS.

Instead they use 100 million consumers as unwilling beta testers. By the time they get all the bugs fixed on one OS (cough cough XP) they are three new operating systems ahead (Vista, 7, 8..).

In that case you should be able to contact them and get your money back or a replacement card. It's not your fault they fried your card.

I checked and my latest driver is:

344.65-desktop-win8-win7-winvista-64bit-international-whql.exe

and my card is running fine, but its a 660 TI. Looks like it's just the previous generation. Hope you get your money back somehow.
