Nvidia has posted a ne set of drivers (Ver 197.13), which fixes fan speed issues reported by users after installing the company's previous driver official release (Ver 196.75) from NVIDIA's website.
NVIDIA said that some users had reported fan speed issues after installing 196.75 drivers from NVIDIA's website. NVIDIA has removed these drivers and asked its partners to also remove the drivers. Nvidia asks any users still using 196.75 drivers to immediately discontinue use and either roll back to their previous driver or install the new 197.13 drivers.

"NVIDIA apologizes to our customers that installed the 196.75 driver and experienced quality issues. For the small number of customers that did experience problems, in almost every case reverting back to our 196.21 driver immediately resolved their issues. We continue to work closely with our add-in-card partners and PC manufacturers to help resolve any additional customer issues not solved by reverting to the earlier driver," Nvidia said.
