  1. Stick to 355.23 until next update
  2. While I am on Win7, I have not had a issue with the drivers, in fact they are damn stable and clean for a change.

    I would download Driver Sweeper from 3D Gurus or Driver Fusion. Remove your Nvidia drivers, then run Driver Sweeper/Fusion to REALLY remove Nvidia. Reboot and you will be in VGA mode. Redownload (to make sure the original download wasn't FUBAR) the 377.88 drivers and reinstall.

    This is the most common way to do a 'clean' install of drivers. Make sure your in a Admin account though to do any of this.
  3. Well that is a solution but i just wanted to play Watch Dogs with optimized settings!!!
  4. @tom tancredi i will try this and inform ypu from the outcome!!!
  5. been using that new driver for almost a week now
    and not one issue.
  6. Did you make sure that you are installing the laptop version of the driver?

    WatchDOG: WARNING! It is a HIGH demanding game. I would download and run SPECCY to tell us your specs before you consider buying it.
    Always remember to use www.canIrunit.com to verify what your PC is capable of for any title game. ALWAYS listen to RECOMMENDED not MINIMAL, as RECOMMENDED is what you 'see' when you watch the 'Youtube Videos of Gameplay'.
