How does the problem manifest? If I put "full-screen Nvidia 337.88" into Google I don't get that much, but can you run games windowed, or is all attempt to run 3D content impossible?
- Nvidia 337.88 + 830 w/Magician,
- Catalyst 14.4 and 840 w/Magician,
- Nvidia 337.88 and a Sandforce drive.
What about Aero desktop?
The Egg wrote:Anyone else having issues with NVidia's full-screen driver bug? It was a mild issue for me before (as in, only occurred very rarely), but with 337.88 it's REALLY BAD. Basically, once the computer has been running for some arbitrary amount of time (or the user has performed an unknown action), the system will no longer run 3D accelerated programs in full-screen mode.
What will happen is the program will start, and then immediately kick back to the desktop (with the program still running in the background). If you Alt-Tab back into the program, it will just kick you to the desktop again. Killing/restarting the program has no effect, and once it's begun doing this, all 3D accelerated programs will do the same. The only solution is to reboot the computer.
I suppose I could just revert back to the previous driver, but I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this, or had any sort of solution. A quick search doesn't come up with anything useful.

This might be money right there. I know all of my games are on Steam, how about you OP?

GTX670 user since 2012 and always on the latest driver.

Perhaps The Egg is talking about having it maximised and the UI is fighting with other apps?
