Graphics Driver Not Approved?

I just ran 3DMark06, 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark 11, but for some reason my scores won't be shown on leaderboards because my graphics driver is not approved. How can this be, when I recently downloaded and installed the latest v280.26 WHQL certified drivers directly from the nVidia website?

They are in the approval process. Hopefully they will be approved later this week.

Usually it takes between 1-3 weeks from publication for a set of drivers to be approved. Depends on how much other testing work our QA lab has. All results submitted before approval turn into approved results when approval process is complete.

If you need to have an approved result for toplists right now, you would have to use older drivers.

Oh okay, that's fine. As long as when the drivers get approved my results will turn into approved later on. Thanks! :)

Yes, that's what will happen as soon as the driver gets "approved" flagging. You don't have to do anything at your end.
