    Being easy to fix does not excuse the behavior. It is symptomatic of a far more grievous underlying problem. Because Micro$loth is run by imbeciles and that is just one more example of their idiocy. We need to all make a big deal of their stupidity and create a hostile environment for them. Maybe then they will pull their head out. Better to motivate them by fear of losing market share than leave them to be guided by their own stupidity. We have lots of examples that the latter is only effective with yes men and Redmond Kool-Aid drinkers.

    It really begs the question if their lofty market share goals are for real. When they do stupid stuff on purpose to make Windoze OS X such a suckfest, it is harder to take them seriously.

    The Windows Driver Foundation service is RIP not only on the Home edition

    So just fyi to everyone overclocking from 75hz to 100hz, we are screwed.

    I just went to play Battlefront 2 free beta this weekend, says sorry you must install newer drivers, 378.92 is not compatible for this game... wow... I have no words anymore man... PC gaming is worse than ever, this is such utter crap. So basically I have to jet out 3 grand for a 120hz laptop screen if I want the proper gamma AND high refresh. ugh... well lesson learned, stop buying monitors if you plan to overclock them, the gamma correction process has wasted so much of my life between this crap and the QNIX 1440p 60hz to 110hz OC days... time to stop being a poor peasant boy and just buy better gear. Think I will roll with a 165hz 1440p or wait for CES 2017 to see if any 240hz 27" 1440p are coming. going to skip 4k and ultrawide i think. 1440p 27" just seems to be the sweet spot for everything I do. ultrawide is great in some games though I do admit.

    That's really sad, but that sounds more to me like a Micro$haft RS3 piece of crap problem. If it worked on RS2 and now it's broken on RS3, there you go. Just more examples of amazing incompetence from the Redmond Mafia. They want you to be a good boy and run everything within original specs and used balanced profile... like a regular consumer idiot that plays Angry Birds, Candy Crush and Bejeweled on their Surface tablet turdlet. Just think of all the starving children, eat your veggies, wear clean underpants in case you are in an accident, and brush your teeth before bed.

    But, no. My surprised look is not on my face. Windows 10 is really a smartphone/tablet OS because that is what they expect everyone to be excited about, and it's all they are competent to produce now.

    no no you misunderstand, we had to use the old drivers on RS2 as well, Anneversary edition we did not though. Nvidia drivers stopped enforcing color profiles in RS2 after 378.92 and RS3 is no different, but some games, Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta this weekend require newer drivers for it to work, which is separate from all of that... but well not really, it all comes back to Win 10 is just a piece of utter crap, that we can agree on. we can't even go back to Win 7 or 8.1 either unless willing to do the DRM hack, ugh, its just so frustrating.

    I just installed latest drivers, using Color Profile Keeper now to enforce gamma, doesn't work for every game, but most games, but at least I can play the new star wars beta this weekend, I am curious to see if the combat in this game is utter crap like the first game.

    Rose Gold the new Black!! Maybe we will see next AWbooks in Rose Gold, as the color seems to appeal to Frank Azor (Vice President for Dell's AW and the XPS line)?:rolleyes: Apple loose and loose in the competition, making Trash!!

    Oh, OK. Thanks for clarifying that. Yes, Windows 10 is a piece of [insert vulgar word] for sure.

    I have 2 questions though. I am dual booting Windows 7 on multiple machines and have zero issues with it. The first question is, why can't you go back to Windows 7? My second question is, what is the DRM hack you mention? I am not using it and everything works flawlessly.

    NVIDIA Control Panel also is missing the feature option to use the 'highest available' refresh rate with newer drivers. You can force it using NVIDIA Inspector driver profile tweaks.

    Wow. That's truly disgusting. "Beautiful" I think not. I think I even threw up in my mouth a little bit.

    kaby lake and above has DRM with windows 10... Microsoft released a patch not allowing windows updates for windows 7 and windows 8 if your using kaby lake or coffee lake or ryzen. I am guessing you use custom win 7 install, and leave auto updates turned off? prob use something like WSUS offline updater to install your updates?
