WARNING Do not upgrade to 375/376.xx drivers (for xx<48)

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

You are correct, of course. I just want to explore all the options. It's just in my nature. I also don't want to make assumptions about how comfortable everyone in this community may be with an INF hack.

Just in case anybody was interested, they have released a hotfix driver which apparently has the workaround fix for F@H until the guys here can fix the bug it "apparently" exposed by the newer drivers.

You can grab it here: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4288

So far so good here, although it's only been an hour... lol

Glennmas: What version of windows do you have?

Edit: if you need a Windows 10 64bit version, I've mirrored the link on my google drive https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9af5B ... sp=sharing

Yeah, as this is a hotfix driver, I would definitely recommend that most everyone go Custom Install and check Perform Clean Installation for this one. The core_21 work unit I got this morning did complete on 376.33. It grabbed a core_18 WU, completed that, and then my GPU slot went into failure for the rest of the day. Clearly, the problem is WU-specific. This hot-fix driver seems to be doing the trick now though. I'm 61% through a core_21 WU and there have been no enqueue crashes. Will continue to monitor.

The hotfix driver folded Core_21 units all night with no issues (GTX 1080, Windows 10 build 14986).
