Neither windows update version nor NVidia Geforce GT 230 plays well with Skype - win 8 64 rp here. Driver restarts every day or so, irritating. Have win8 64 RTM Enterprise trial on another partition - don't run it often enough to know, yet, whether the issue persists there...

Display Driver Finally Updates:

Even though I had long ago grabbed the driver from NVidia for Windows8, I would get "Display driver has stopped working & restarted". Each time I would, naturally, logically, check for Display Driver Update only to be told the "latest, most up to date was, already, installed". Today, it did it again BUT, this time, I'm happy to say & inform others, it DID find & install new driver software. Ergo, those w/ NVidia cards might want & be wise to check this, now, for yourselves.

I am referring to doing this via Device Manager, btw.

Cheers,
Drew
