Anyone having Nvidia driver problems?

Their drivers have been pretty crap lately, I've settled for 361.75, this was the last one that my OC was stable on (which has been stable up until the Fallout 4 game ready driver anyways) without driver crashes and the occasional artifacting. 365.10 was unstable aswell so I went back to 361.75.

And the stupid high idle clock that was supposed to be fixed a couple of drivers ago is still present.

Gday folks!

So for the last 2 months or so I always get this bug in games such as JC2, WoT, War Thunder and others and it's really starting to get on my nerves.

I launch a game and I instantly get a huge 12FPS!!!!!!!!

This is the same until I press ALT+F9 to start shadow play recording. But recently that has stopped working.

I have tried  reinstalling drivers and what not using DDU but still have the same problem. 

In case you're wondering by now, my card is the 660. Old but upgrading to the 1070 in Aug. I tested the card in another PC with the problem non existent. I try another card in my PC (8800 GTX) and the problem is non existent.

 

So my questions are:

Do you have the same or similar problem?

Do you have a fix for the problem?

 

Thanks!

What i would do is reinstall the drivers again. And see if that fixes anything. For me that helped.

Try using an older driver. You can download older drivers for all Nvidia GPU's (including GTX 660) here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us

No I don't have that problem, though your exact model is famous for driver problems. Nvidia just keeps screwing it up. Have you tried older driver versions? I know it's not ideal but maybe it will help you, it worked for many people.

Thanks mate! Driver worked perfectly and allowed me to push past a 40 MHz OC!
