Doesn't work for me. I'm using 17,1 iMac SMBIOS profile. Black screen on boot with web driver enabled (already done the Pike R. Alpha Clover fix for black screen + sleep after boot).

See post #25. Boot with nvda_drv=0 to fix.

The beta drives worked for me! I have a GTX 970 Gigabyte G1 Gaming card.
Thanks for the info guys!

It is not a problem, I had always this situation with the NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.15f02. The most important is to be able to access at the resolution settings in system preferences, no ?

I'm not sure what you mean - I can't seem to enable the beta drivers at all. As I said, I enable Nvidia driver with the Nvidia control, a restart is required. But upon restart, the Apple driver is enabled, NOT the Nvidia one. The Nvidia toolbar even shows that it's the OS X divers in use.

And I can't change resolution settings...

My understanding is that the Nvidia drivers are faster and more stable, so I'd like to have them enabled if possible. Not getting that with the beta drivers...

What do you mean that you have always had this situation? I've always had the Nvidia control panel show the Nvidia drivers are in use, NOT the Apple ones ;)

I had OS X Default Graphics Driver (Use the NVIDIA Graphics Driver that comes with OS X) always enabled in the Nvidia Driver Manager (control panel) and it worked fine : access to my different monitor's resolutions . It was impossible to enable NVIDIA Web Driver...
But now I have the NVIDIA Web Driver enabled with beta version !!

Security Update 2016-001 changes the build of Mac OS X 10.11.6 to 15G1004. NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.15f02 is not compatible to this build.

For now you can solve this by two methods:

Method 1: Get the beta driver 346.03.15b01. THANK YOU ZGONDA !!

Method 2: Edit the info.plist to reflect your current build version as described on ******.

So basically you were never actually running the Nvidia drivers before, you just had the Nvidia manager installed, but left the Apple drivers enabled.

Still not sure why you can enable the Nvidia drivers now that you have the beta drives installed. It won't work for me. But it's great that you're finally actually running the Nvidia drivers...
