NVIDIA drivers and multi-monitor setups

nvidiaSince July 2015, my GeForce Experience has become somewhat of a nightmare.

I'm among a few dozen people who are suffering from several issues with their multi-monitor setup with the latest NVIDIA drivers and the only solution so far seems to be to stick to driver version 353.62 which was released way back on the 29th of July 2015.

No matter which driver version I tried, every version any newer than the previously mentioned version 353.62 would break my monitor setup in Windows 10 in one way or another on a NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X.

These problems include:

  • window positions resetting to the primary monitor when waking up from standby mode
  • monitor IDs swapping between primary and secondary monitor on each boot
  • Windows crashing with blue screen of death

Fix Skype's cloud-based group chats

Since Microsoft introduced Skype's cloud-based group chats which replaced the previous peer-to-peer group chats, you may sometimes find yourself in a situation where you are unable to send messages to those cloud-based group chats.

The source of the problem remains unknown but it appears to be limited to the cloud server that your Skype client is configured to use. Luckily, this can be changed.

Grand Theft Auto V has stopped working

Grand Theft Auto 5Imagine you just spent about 60 bucks on a computer game. Imagine said game kept crashing seemingly randomly without any sign of warning with a generic error message such as "Grand Theft Auto V has stopped working".

Now imagine you were presented with dozens of search results on Google with seemingly helpful "tips" what might cause it and how people managed to fix it. Sadly, those tips mostly read like this:

GTA V used to crash for me all the time. Then I fed my cat and it never crashed since then. So I suggest you all get a cat and feed it.

Unsurprisingly - even though cats can be evil - they are not responsible for GTA 5 or GTA online crashing.

Update:
It seems that Rockstar Games addressed most of the crash issues and some others in the latest patch for GTA V.
Read more about the various fixes in the official patch 350.1 release notes.
