Have you installed the latest drivers for the card as well?
What is your nVidia driver version?
Right click in any open area of the Windows desktop
Select NVIDIA Control Panel from the popup window
Select SYSTEM INFORMATION at the lower left corner
Driver version should be the 1st line in Details
I have a GTX285 using driver 296.10
Many people had to update their nVidia driver to go from CS5 to CS6... so it would not surprise me if a Win7 to Win8 change also requires a driver update
Just installed the latest drivers, and that fixed the issue . Stupid of me not to check this before, but thanks to the both of you!!
You are welcome. Great to hear you are back in business.
All too often, folk will trust their OS, or some driver utility, to tell if they have the latest video driver. Those will be probably 6 mos. out of date. You did things correctly, and your actions bore fruit.
Glad that things are now going well for you.
