maybe you misunderstood me or i suck at explanations. Not all cards are 
affected and even the same chipsets. In some situations, no idea what 
are those, the new nvidia driver doesn't work.

for example there is one guy with sony vaio laptop in the forum which 
has 8400 GT and has black screen. Others that have 84000 GT doesn't have 
this issue.

i'm too lazy to search for black screen now but is not on the front page 
as this issue was reported since the beta
