    I installed nvidia's new drivers that were released today: 275.33. and when I rebooted, I was greeted with no Aero. Automated attempts to fix the problem were unsuccessful. I reverted to a previous point using system restore, and all was well. Anyone else having the same problem?

    yes, because they are in beta, you cant do things
    plus you've installed them now?
    umm they have been for quite a long time now
    btw revert back to 271.61

    275.33 is not Beta,it's WHQL.
    Btw,where you found 271.61 drivers?!

    I know there are old drivers; that's what I was using before. That's not the point though, I was just wondering why newer WHQL drivers broke aero.

    maybe because microsoft called up nvidia people to limit the usage of build 7955 & 7850?
    idk man, check out on google or call them up. They've got forums ? then post on them, maybe somebody would help you.

    google returns nothing and i'd prefer not to be banhammered from their forums. in case you haven't noticed, having Windows 8 is illegal.
