    I'm on 186.08 on Windows 7 64bit, and have just had the same issue, of a UT3 crash with the no signal error on monitor.

    Found this post, via searching for the issue on google.

    Seems this is going to be a problem for some time,
    and to mr. Gunwing How about you quit your self rightious preaching, You know your not the only person in the world don't you, just because your issue is sorted does not mean every one else will be.

    Learning from that experience, I turned UAC off to do the 182.50 installation and had no hassles at all. After the install and required reboot, I turned UAC back on again. No problem.

    When ever I am going to install something I always just right-click the install file/self extractor, click the "unblock" button under the "General" tab and check "Run as administrator" under the "Security" tab. Aways works for me.

    I have a Nvidia GeForce 6800 under Windows XP 32-bit. The new 182.50 drivers don't work for me. And deleting the My Documents\My Games folder didn't work either.

    It's really annoying because often I'm trying to load a map, and then suddenly my monitor turns off for no reason! It's not even a black screen, there's just no valid signal! I can use ALT-TAB and interact with other programs currently open, but there's still no valid signal! I have no choice but to manually shut down my PC every time!

    The oddest part is that after a fresh boot, I can play the game without any issues for about 2 hours before it crashes. But if I try to boot it again, I either crash again, get the behavior described earlier, or get a BSOD. Seriously, I don't get it, and it's really annoying.

    The only way I'm able to play UT3 without any issues is to roll back my drivers to 178.24, so at least I can still play, but I hope it's only a temporary workaround and that I won't be stuck with these drivers forever.

    I don't know who's to blame between Nvidia or Epic Games for this mess, but please work together to get this fixed quickly!

Before that version I would get a frozen screen instead, so I could maybe have a chance to end UT3 via Windows task manager.
    Ahhh. Interesting. I too experienced a blank screen with a No Signal message on my LCD. It only happened once, but it did happen. Yes, 182.06, on Vista. And here I was thinking that my video card had crashed on me and it might be the first sign that my video card was on it's way to hardware failure. I also had a strange video issue when playing MS Flight Simulator which only served to add to my thoughts that it might be a hardware fault. So, I am happy to see this post here stating that someone else had experienced the SAME thing as me. So it's not my card afterall, it's the driver. Phew. I have today upgraded the driver to 182.50.

Before that version I would get a frozen screen instead, so I could maybe have a chance to end UT3 via Windows task manager. I'm wondering though if there is a new Nvidia conflict with my Vista power settings that turn off my monitor after 20 minutes of inactivity. I remember a year and a half ago Vista power settings conflicted with Nvidia drivers and my PC would not resume out of suspend mode but that known issue was fixed with later drivers. So today I just reset the power settings to never turn off the monitor or anything else to test if the No Signal still happens when playing UT3.

    I have a Nvidia GeForce 6800 with Windows XP 32-bit, and I have installed the 182.08 drivers, and I'm constantly getting weird crashes sometimes when running the game, except if my PC is in a fresh boot state.

    The latest crash I got was a BSOD today when attempting to continue my campaign. (STOP: 0x0000007F)

    I'll check in the following days if any of the workaround proposed on these forums work.

    .08 just adds more support for Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X no optimizations for other/older games, nor any bug fixes, unless you count adding support for the for-mentioned game a bug fix.
