    incorrect Nvidia drivers via auto update by windows


    Every time windows updates my video driver it makes it so I can't access my computer. Usually I can enter via safe mode and download the correct driver from nvidia directly. However, this last time, the most recent windows update, I couldn't even use safe mode, and eventually had a "critical failure" which forced me to reinstall windows completely, thus losing ALL my data. Is there a way to prevent windows from downloading incorrect drivers?

    :)

    NVIDIA Adds Windows 8 to GeForce Driver Update Stack

    AMD may have been the first to be out with drivers for its Radeon GPUs that are optimized for Windows 8 (WDDM 1.2), but NVIDIA went a step ahead of "special-releases" for its GeForce drivers, and added Windows 8 to its update stack, meaning that Windows 8 will feature in the list of operating systems to pick from, to download drivers. NVIDIA will constantly update these drivers along with mainline releases for Windows 7/Vista and XP. The latest such driver is 296.17. This driver supports GeForce and Quadro GPUs, and according to NVIDIA, is a quick-update over 295.73 WHQL, with the addition of performance optimization for Blacklight: Retribution.
