    Heya

    I have an Nvidia Gforce GTX 660. It was acting a little glitchy when I play World of Warcraft so I went to their website and noticed that very recently they released a new driver set for it. I run Win 7 and after a few clicks I was well on my way to downloading and then installing this new driver for my hardware graphics card. Now, a few days later, Warcraft runs even worse, (if at all,) and it throws an error on my screen right before kernal locking my system. Is/was there a more stable driver set I should be using? What should I do?

    Please help.

    Thank you. :confused: :(

    So I did a roll back but it did me no good.

    Frustrated, I got out the old shop vac and switched the hose to the blowing side. I unplugged all the stuff from my computer, opened it up, and went outside. On with the vacuum and LOTS of white dust and clouds of junk came out. I blasted all the fans and the card real good. I even got the power supply real good. All until it was dust free. I then hooked back up my computer and started Warcraft and so far....so good. It's hard to believe that it was most likely because my fans and heat sinks were dirty.

    Thanks! Stayed logged in Warcraft for about 30 minutes and still no problems.

    ;-)
