My monitor is connected via DP and I've been noticing lately that audio seems to lag behind the start of a video, streaming and physical, since updating to this driver. Has anyone else seen this same behavior from this driver? I"m thinking about rolling back to an earlier version.

Can you use system restore and go back to a time it was working ? Like before the driver installation and what not.

Yes it's funny how video card drivers sometimes do more damage then damage control. hmmm

Have you tried using an older audio driver with the newer GPU driver? Or do both packages use the same version?

I tried messing around with different versions and ended up staying on 388.71 which is working just fine for me without any audio issues to speak of. Do you suppose that Nvidia is deliberately introducing bugs in the later versions to encourage users of older cards to upgrade?
