As many of you are aware, NVIDIA has hit some snags with their latest round of WHQL drivers. The drivers have been interfering with the fan operation on certain NVIDIA video cards, resulting in the GPU overheating. NVIDIA has taken down the drivers in question, and has asked that we pass along the following message:

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.

Here’s a link for instructions on how to roll back your driver. http://www.nvidia.com/object/driver_rollback.html

    Yeah but who wouldn't buy one ATI 5000 series card for replacement... Reply

    Yup! Planned obsolescence at work here.

    Of course, the driver team didn't get the memo that Fermi was delayed, so this happened before the new cards were available.
