You two got some issues... ;)

Consider doing a clean install, Drivercleaner, safe mode, tick the clean install button, dont copy back profiles etc.

No, we do not have issues ... :rolleyes:

I always do a clean install ... especially drivers.

I make sure I untick the "experience" box, other than that, I've always installed them the same way.

Waiting 4min watching your monitor power light flashing is, unnerving. I, for one automaticly think it's borked, again.

I will be seriously considering an AMD card on my next update ... this 560 is getting a bit long in the tooth now.

:)

Got you and TD mixed up, your both having similar issues. :)



Out of interest, after doing a quick bit of reading, two questions for you both, what DVI port are you using and have you disabled onboard graphics?

I will get those shortly I have a few of the games they improve though I won't be buying Battlefield 4 or CoD Ghosts. tbh I'm fed up with The Call Of Duty series, they have become stale and each issue seems to cost more and get shorter. If EA scrap Origin I'd love to play Battlefield 4, it looks great, but I am not putting up with that Origin pile of poo.

Lemme see, for at least 10 years I have been using Nvidia drivers and in all that time only ever had one problem and Nvidia recognised that and withdrew those drivers within 3 days and advised everybody to roll back until they sorted the prob and issued replacements.

And sometimes I just install straight over the top if I can't be bothered to uninstall, there is that 'Clean install' option after all.

If AMD are so good how come they keep making cards that on paper outperform Nvidia yet all the online computer components suppliers have to sell them at rock bottom prices to shift them?

Maybe I'm missing out on a bargain, lol, I'd buy AMD if I felt sure, I'm no fanboy of any one make. But I don't feel sure, and therein lies the problem ;)
