Windows 7 64 bit, latest Bionic,just installed Nvidia 306.23 drivers and all Seti Enhanced 6.10 (cuda_fermi) are having computation errors. Suspended and going to reinstall 301.42 drivers. Just wanted to post ASAP to let others know of this potential problem. Running EVGA 670+ Superclocked 4GB in my case. Not overclocking over the factory overclock.

It is a known issue with the newer drivers and there is a fix for it now.

The other fix is to run the optimized app for CUDA as it never had the problem.
