This SPECIFIC driver version has wreaked HAVOC on my Dell Studio 540. 1 day after being automatically installed by Windows Update, my computer began crashing about every hour, usually when moving any graphics with high color across my two 22" Samsung screens.

 


To make matters much worse, the 6th time my PC crashed, the power supply COMPLETELY died inside my PC, causing me to purchase a brand new power supply.

 


What caused me to narrow down the crash issues to a video card driver update was the fact that everything that I did with graphics, my computer would crash instanty.

 


After completely replacing the power supply (since it refused to turn on after my computer repeatedly crashed--guess it wore the power supply down???), my computer finally turned on again, but crashed several more times. Finally, I manually downgraded to an older version of the display drivers (26x.xx) and my computer has been stable again since.

 


This is a SERIOUS issue that caused a computer which has been VERY stable for 2 years to crash frequently and cause me to replace an entire power supply. WTF did nvidia do with this friggin update???

 


Hell. I want my money back for the replacement power supply. I read elsewhere where this specific driver update caused hardware failure for other people!!!!!

"Read the forum rules?"

?? Fucking prick. Any proper moderator of somebody else's forum they own no legitimate rights to (especially after basically rebelling against zilmar) would be aware of the fact that "their" forum has no rules stating things like, no links to ROM sites, if in fact they are not there.

 


Easily lied to and deceived by Gent on other people's behavior as well. They're a fucking terrorist group as far as I'm concerned--you know, the kind of people who lose with life so they need to feel power over arbitrary things like being a moderator on the Internet.

Tocs don't usually have great performance boosts.
Like I said a year ago, I'm waiting til Haswell because that's a Tic and not a Tock.

<blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="628" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div>Tocks are the big changes (Marchitecture)
Ticks are the little changes (Shrinks)

 


IB is a Tick


Broadwell/Haswell is Tock (Though one may be a Tick of the other, compared to IB both are a tock)

 


Intel doesn't always go tick tock, they have quite a few Tick Tick Ticks before a tock

<blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="628" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div>"Tocks are big, Ticks are little"? 


Pun intended on the "little" shrinks? Laugh

 


Tick is a new architecture.


Tock is a die shrink.

 


Kinda hard to sum up what each of these are capable of, other than the obvious...

 


Not sure what's going on with your broken clock, Squall. ;P

 


Core was a Tock,


Penryn was a Tick,


Nehalem was a Tock,


Westmere was a Tick,


Sandy Bridge was a Tock,


Ivy Bridge is a Tick,


Haswell is the next Tock,


and Broadwell would be a Tick (not another Tock).

<blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="628" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div>Not what I heard Tongue 


Ivy Bridge is a Tick+, shrinking of Sandy Bridge architecture from 32nm to 22nm, plus a big leap for IGP.

 


They claimed that it would have very low TDP thanks to the all new Tri-Gate manufacturing process, 20% faster than Sandy, and the IGP would be able to play all newest games. All lies! Glare

Rezard, shut up and accept that you got it wrong, stop insulting people.

epic lulz




....? 


How can I be wrong, but I'm saying "what everyone else is telling me"?

 


Sooo... Everyone is wrong then? Tongue

 


Even funnier; You posted a link that backs up what I say.

 


Laugh And now I see you went back to edit/correct your post.


gj making it look different than when I posted.

 


BTW - I seriously feel your attitude is uncalled for,


and it is your statements that are the insults.

 


Do you seriously feel you're not the ass when you constantly tell people to "shut up"?

You denied that Marchitecture changes are Tocks in the same post where you stated that Penryn was a Tick followed by Nahalem as a Tock

 




Laugh And now I see you went back to edit/correct your post.

it doesn't look different, all the text previously there is there + some additions for poor sops like you who try in vain to deny the facts as they are

Oh really?

 




Not sure what's going on with your broken clock' date=' Squall. ;P[/quote']

Insulting people that are more intelligent then you may get ignored by most people that are more intelligent that are you, but some of them are eccentric and WILL call you on it.

Oh, pfft! 


I knew I'd get mixed up with the "Ticks" and "Tocks" at some point.


Forgive me for making a typo,


but at least I use stuff like ;P to let people know I'm being playful.


I'm not carrying a sore attitude...

 


With you, you clearly said "tick, tick,tick..." and I was merely posting what I'd seen (and again-- you linked).

 


Also-- the ;P to indicate all in good fun.


You never do that.

 


You're goal more clearly is to insult, or flame,


and possibly to make yourself out to be "more intelligent" than others.

 


I don't care for this "who's smarter" crap.


My goal is to learn from others what I don't know,


and share what I have learned.

 


Incorrect or not;


At least I'm not without good intentions...
