    Getting loads of crashes in my MPro 2009 GT120 Yosemite with this latest update a few days ago.

    Seen others with this issue although some are ok.

    Went back to OSX default drivers and no crashes.

    Might try rolling back somehow to previous version of NVidia driver

    Interested if anyone has issues or fixes

    FYI Nvidia is mentioned as first few lines of crash reports (I am no expert though)

    Previous version worked perfectly.

    I wonder why nVidia releases so many driver updates...

    It's better than nothing, which is usually the case for any Mac related drivers anyway.

    Why are you using the Nvidia web drivers for a GT120? It's pointless as they add no functionality or performance boost. It's only worth using the Nvidia drivers for those PC graphics cards (flashed or not) that are not supported by the native OS X drivers.

    I am testing other graphics cards like GTX 760 and 5870 (unflashed).

    The NVIDIA driver is tied to a specific OS version (e.g. 14D136). When Apple releases a security update that changes the OS version, NVIDIA has to release a corresponding driver update that exactly matches the new OS.

    Can you post crash logs? Hard to diagnose what's going on without more information. However, as others have said, there's no real point in running the NVIDIA web driver for a GT 120.
