DO NOT USE Driver Sweeper. It does more harm than good.


why?



"Driver sweeper has been known to remove important chipset files which will result in errors such as instability. Some users have reported that the sweeper software removes “False positives” and may cause the user issues when trying to install software such as drivers. The error usually reports that an .ini file is damaged. Over long term use of driver sweeper, it could cause several underlying issues which will do more harm than good."

Gotcha. Do you have a guide for AMD drivers?

Does this method no longer work?:

Also, GeForce Experience automatically uninstalls the current drivers before installing the new ones. I noticed this while reading the update status. Sorry if you already knew this.

I have a 560 and the same thing happen to me, and it was always while I used firefox. I rolled back to 314 and the problems disappear.

I am now using the latest drivers 320.49 and it have had a few glitches, but never again it froze or crash. I'm keeping my eye on the temps just in case, they they stay at 35-37 when idle.


Most of my lock ups seemed to occur with Firefox as well. Also, I'm kinda glad to see other people are having problems. I'm not ready to upgrade yet. XD
