    PSA: Nvidia users beware; Latest driver may cause harm your PC! (364.72)

    The latest Nvidia GeForce drivers are reportedly damaging multiple PC's around the globe with their latest driver; 364.72 Game Ready. While, personally, I haven't had any issues with my computer since upgrading to the latest drivers, there is a good chance they will damage your computer(s).

    Some of the issues users have noticed;

    • Computer unable to boot into OS.
    • GPU dying.
    • BSOD crashes.
    • Grey & green artifacting.
    • Flickering.
    • Visual corruption.
    • G-Sync issues.
    • DSR scaling issues.
    • SLI not enabling / working properly.
    • Shadowplay not recording.


    To avoid getting these issues, stay on the driver version before 364.72 or from reddits perspective, roll back to; 358.87 or 358.91 (FO4 Driver).

    You can read more about the issues here.

    What the hell is Nvidia doing lately? I've had massive problems with their patch before that. Random driver crashes while playing games mostly. I hoped this update would fix stuff but oh well.... I'll rather stay at the current broken one before updating to this one and running into the risk of my fucking CPU dying .__.

    Thanks for the heads up m8!

    Quick update: A couple of people on reddit have been complaining about Shadowplay not functioning properly, more than likely related to the latest driver. Along with that SLI seems to be broken for quite a few people as well.

    People have been recommending to avoid the entire 364.* drivers altogether.
