New Nvidia Graphic driver(v8.17.12.6721 / 1.2.22.1) bug

My laptop is t410 with nvidia nvs m3100 model 2516CTO. After updating to the new graphic version 8.17.12.6721 / 1.2.22.1, there some issues occurred. The background of login window in windows 7 looks like in 16bit color and in the videos and games, it looks running in the 16bit color too.

After trying to reinstall the driver several times, I almost confirm it's the bugs. Now I'm back to the previous version, it works normally.

Are there any others met this problem?

Remotely updated a T510 with Windows 7 x86 to said version. User hasn't reported any display color changes, but I'll check again.

 

EDIT: It does indeed have the issue.

I suppose you could just hit Roll Back Driver in Device Manager.

New driver: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2142/5702474067_42d0fb600b.jpg

 

Old one: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3645/5703064630_de7087415a.jpg

 

It seems that snipping tool can not catch these different. Maybe a display problem.

 

Remember, it is not really work in 16bit color for AERO(require 24bit(32bit) color) just works fine. The problem is only occur at the output (LVDS part maybe).

3100M 256 (not switchable) with windows 7 x64 4GB memory i5 540

I fixed the issue by uninstalling the driver completely ( I had no rollback option) and then installing the certified driver from Windows update.

I can't really tell the difference in those shots. =/

It's the classic banding as if one were to switch to 16-bit color.
