    Hello Marco, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you installed the driver to undo it and hopefully fix this issue for you.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Try hitting shift+restart and doing a restore/reset. Worked for me, andI had the exact same problem

    Try to boot up on safe mode. It will not make use of your Nvidia display driver and you should be able to do a system restore without a problem.

    Safe Mode - Start Windows 8 in

    Just a comment, 320.14 is a beta version of the Nvidia driver not a final release.

    Yes - This is why I held off, nVidia Betas can sometimes cause problems - Someone needs to report this to nVidia, they'll want to know. It's why they have Betas. Is there a link on the nVidia site to report problems with Betas?
