March 7 2016 release of driver
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 by PoSmedley | Discussion: Personal Computing
I downloaded the latest Game Ready Driver yesterday from NVIDIA when the Game Ready App alerted me it was available and fell victim to the BSOD as did thousands of others.
It took me a bit to even discover I was not alone and it was actually not my fault for a change.
I did manage to boot into repair mode and I did a system restore. A lot of people were not even able to do that. I can attest to the fact that constant rebooting only got me the BSOD over and over.
There were several fixes offered such as uninstalling and then reinstalling under the 'custom' setting and doing a clean install.
However, I came across this
The link will take you to
Version: 364.51 BETA
Release Date: 2016.3.8
Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit
Language: English (US)
File Size: 324.51 MB
where you can download the update to version 364.47 driver that shut down so many PC's yesterday.
OR, as some folks are doing, wait it out. NVIDIA's first claim was that this was affecting only dual monitor set-ups, but if you look, you'll see single monitor rigs got hit as well (like mine).
Hope this is of some help to anyone who got snagged in the mess.
