NVIDIA ForceWare 197.13 driver fixes GeForce overheating issues

How did a bad driver even get through?

| Video Cards News | Posted: Mar 18, 2010 12:02 pm

It is staggering that NVIDIA even let such a bad driver go through validation and processing when we discuss the GeForce 196.75 driver package that failed to control the fan speeds on certain GeForce based video cards.

 

The driver caused certain NVIDIA video cards to overheat and as a result caused system stability issues and the like. Not good, at all.

 

If you are experiencing such issues or just want the latest driver for your system, yesterday NVIDIA released its latest ForceWare driver labeled 197.13 (you can download it here for 64-bit Vista or Windows 7) that fixes the fan speed control issue, as well as adds in a bunch of new features - such as support for the Next Generation ION and the GeForce GT 320, GeForce GT 330 and GeForce GT 340.
