Nvidia driver warning

Recommended Posts

There is no or little reason to install a new driver if your current video driver works fine. Installing new drivers consumes more disk space too.

Just as well I don't have any fans on my nVidia card. :D

 

So what's the problem exactly, are they cooking the GPU making the fans work overtime??

I agree with Ishi, if it ain't broke don't try to fix it.

 

However, thanks Hazelnut for the heads-up.

Take this into consideration, just because a driver is newer than your current driver, that doesn't mean that the newer one is always better.

 

I have seen a more advanced video driver, with features that my video adapter doesn't even support and when I installed it, my game would have minor but noticeable lags that don't even happen to my old driver when I play the same game on the same computer.

"WHQL-certified" = fail

 

WHQL means "We guarantee it won't harm Windows". This driver doesn't harm Windows.

So I guess they don't make fan's hardware controlled anymore that kind of sucks??

I'm not sure if I like the sound of software controlled fans like what if my graphics card driver crashed overnight I could be waking up with a dead GPU the next day. :\

Anyway even if the software is buggy it always a good idea to constantly monitor the temperature of your hardware anyway so in the event of a heating problem you can shutdown and let it cool down.

Makes me wish I would've just bought another ATI card, even though I seem to burn them up every two years. The NVIDIA drivers have had some display corruption bug in them for a long time now.
