Nvidia Withdraws 196.75 WHQL Drivers
For those who have already updated to the latest WHQL 196.75 Nvidia drivers,
please revert to your previous set. Nvidia have withdrawn them because of
overheating/fan issues.

See Nvidia's download page for more information and their forums.

Thanks Peter. Pure luck I stumbled upon this. Got an expensive NV card
that could have been fried. I hope Nvidia is getting in contact with its
users about this issue.

They're not contacting people. It's up to the user to keep updated.
With so many companies using nVidia GPUs, there's no way for
nVidia to know all the people who use their products. It's the same with
ATI. I owned an ATI-powered graphics card and found out about problems
just by reading the newsgroups. ATI never contacted me. Now I own
an nVidia GTX 275 and nVidia hasn't contacted me or anyone else I know
who owns and nVidia-based card.
