    FYI: Never had a problem running Nvidia drivers for the past 20 years, but these borked my video card!

    After installing them I couldn't select 4K no matter what I tried. I finally did a clean install of 388.71 and it fixed it.

    Just a warning to those who are considering installing them!

    Yeah I just tried the newest 390 drivers this evening and it to was the first time I've had a bad experience Installing nvidia drivers in many years! Epic fail!

    I also have a 4k screen. Had no problem in 4k mode. It it lost the color profile of 4:4:4. Only could select 4:4:2 I believe it is.

    Screen was all darkish before changing the selection.

    I used ddu before and both times I tried to reinstall them and the same.

    Also at first the screen was totally hosed.. white/grey streaks or lines.. barely make out where the windows start button was to reset the pc.. thst happend both time on first boot up after installing it. Removing the monitor cable and reinserting seemed to fix it.

    Installed the 388.71 drivers and it was fine.

    So much for getting the new security fix!

    Did you happen to check if you had "Dynamic Range" set to full on the resolution section of NVCP? I know there's been issues with that in the last few drivers. 390.65 is working great for me, but I'm at 3440x1440.

    Mine worked fine at 2560x1440 too, but the problem was that it was my maximum resolution, and not the 3840x2160 it should have been.

    I had that typical problem where the colors keep or resetting washed out so I uninstalled Geforce experience and that worked. After like 20 seonds the colors would return to default for some reason I think Geforce experience was loading a color profile for a game or some bug.

    I installed the 390.65 drivers and I haven't had any issues. In fact, Battlefront II was practically unplayable on the last few releases, and it's better now. HDR was totally broken in Mass Effect Andromeda for the last 5 or 6 driver revisions. 390.65 fixed that too. I'm at 4K and I've been very pleased with these drivers.

    I run a modded BIOS on my Titan X Maxwell cards, the newest drivers pop an error if they have anything other than stock BIOS. So last night I finally let the fall creator's update come through, but didn't let it install any drivers, so it just wiped me back to VGA res on my 4K screen and no video driver. Re-installed the older (don't recall the number, it was the one that unlocked the Xp compute or whatever - run the same driver on my Xp rig) and was back in business.

    Not the issue you guys are having, but Nvidia and Microsoft seem to be working together to try to bust my chops. I accidentally let Windows install new Nvidia drivers on my HTPC with a W10 update and it busted my HDCP, I might try rolling back those drivers but I already re-wired stuff now.
