Windows Important Update - NVIDIA GTX 580 - Causing Issues..

Postby TeraByte Support » Fri Apr 12, 2013 10:37 am

So windows update decided to update the Nvidia Driver for the GeForce GTX
580 (good thing I noticed it or I'd wonder what the heck was going on) and
ever since then I was having weird video issue (screen not updating when
needed leaving ghosts, missing colors, etc..) ... instead of reverting, used
the nvidia control panel to check for update from Nvidia of which there was
one, so updated and that fixed all the issues.

Just a FYI for others having issues.

Though the driver updates in Win 7 are more benign - those in XP used to FUBAR everything; never, ever update drivers via windows update...ever!
