196.75 Alert!
We are aware that some customers have reported fan speed issues with the latest 196.75 WHQL drivers on NVIDIA.com. Until we can verify and root cause this issue, we recommend that customers do not download this driver. Instead, please stay with, or return to 196.21 WHQL drivers. Release 196.75 drivers have been temporarily removed from our website and we also are asking our partners and others to remove temporarily this 196.75 WHQL driver as well

So much the same as usual then.  Nvidia never seem to test very thoroughly before releasing updated drivers.

really? Nvidia havent released a faulty driver before this one in about  year, ATI seem to have glitches all the time, Nvidia tend to be quite good.... we're having a debate over at sevenforums on whether or not to sticky our version of this thread to point to next time someone goes on about how perfect nvidias drivers are...
think you either need to get your facts straight or prove me wrong Wink

So only one fault per year is good?!?!?  Not by any sane standards it isn't, even if this is better than ATI.
