    Hi Guys,

    This one sure will polarize, I have NVIDIA forceware driver ver 84.21 & the current driver is 93.71, quite a few releases between what I have & current. So should I upgrade or stick with the old & working?

    Note the current issue of 'Smart Computing' is on the side of upgrading all drivers every so often.

    Thanks & T.C.

    if it works for you then keep your current driver.

    i personally get the latest version or beta.

    EDIT: if u do decide to try new drivers, use Driver Cleaner Professional to uninstall the old version. and remember to read the directions before doing anything.

    Hi Rico

    Both of my machines have the nvidia drivers. I tried one update, I don't remember the various versions, an it was a less than happy experience. Fortunately between FDISR and images the fix was trivial. I haven't bothered since.

    I would give it a go, assuming you have a good rollback system in place, and see what happens.
