warning on nvidia's site
196.75 Alert!
We are aware that some customers have reported fan speed issues with the latest 196.75 WHQL drivers Until we can verify the 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.

for those of you that think this is not important please remember that if the fan is slow or stops it can lead to a burnt out GPU.

nvidia have now sorted this problem out.
all new drivers from their website can be downloaded free.

i advise people with nvidia cards to check for updates once a month as nvidia are always updating their drivers.

don't forget to keep your direct x fully up to date to get the very best from any drivers.
