Has anyone managed to figure out the blanking/flickering bug yet?

Thanks but I am curious, have the NVidia drivers been updated again? I followed the directions above but after I reboot the system Nvidia Settings show the driver version as 270.18.

Hi, my workstation has been upgraded auto-magically to version 270.18, and I’m facing issues with this new version. How can I downgrade to 260.19.29 ?

Thanks,
