the division 4k pc maxed out

Nvidia have just released the GeForce 364.47 WHQL Driver- it’s game ready for the upcoming The Division as well as Need for Speed (releasing, at long last, on PC!). Normally, new GeForce drivers are good news, and pretty cut and dry- download and install them, even if you don’t intend to play the games they include compatibility code for.

However, this time, it seems that the new driver introduces a whole lot of issues- players on Reddit and NeoGAF are reporting that the driver is causing Blue Screens of Death and boot failures for Windows 10 users, causing them to boot the system in Safe Mode to scrub the driver entirely. Users with multiple monitor setups seem to be especially affected.

As of right now, the safest thing to do is to not download and install the driver. Hopefully, Nvidia can issue a hotfix for the problems soon, and people can get to playing The Division and Need for Speed soon enough.

    my screen’s gone to a darn green flickering state while on higher res. I had to uninstall Geforce 364.47 driver and DDU it. Also running uplay or any game launched thru it crashes my pc ever since I Installed/removed this driver. Way to go Nvidia!

    This is why i don’t install drivers as soon as they come out….specially GPU drivers as those tend to wreak havoc on your system if its a bad one.

    This is what happens when Microsoft controls YOUR computer and the updates. FAILURE! Hasn’t someone come up with a good hack to prevent these dangerous updates yet?

      Except that this is an Nvidia update, not Windows………

    I’ve been using Windows 10 with no problems along with the latest NVIDIA driver so far. Seriously, I have no idea what the fuss is about. :/

    That damn driver put me into a boot loop that wouldn’t even let me enter safe mode. Being a fairly new install of windows anyway (about 2 weeks old) I apparently clicked the wrong option to disable windows restore functions. After trying every single option available to me, including windows reset, I had to completely reinstall windows. So pissed about this as I had just got the computer configured and all my software installed to about where I like it and now I’ve got to start over. Only saving grace about this is that any and all program data I could specify locations for went on a non-OS hard drive, so I didn’t really lose any data, only time. Having been a Radeon user for the last 10+years, I’m not real thrilled with my GTX970 right now…
