Y430 - Display Driver Has Stopped Responding Issue

[ Edited ]

 

I purchased my Lenovo Y430 in April 2009. This unit came loaded with Vista home premium 64bit and I recently upgraded it to Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I have posted the hardware configuration at the end of this topic.

 

My basic problem is that when I am gaming, I am in Second Life almost every day, i get a consistent "Display Driver Stopped Responding and Recovered......" after the game has been running for a while - anywhere from a few minutes to an hour - after I have completely cold booted my computer. I have to reboot several times each day to recover from this.

 

This problem is very similar to the one described HERE. I have searched for information related to this problem in the Y series of IdeaPad and have come up empty. I am very frustrated as you can imagine.

 

I did try various video drivers when I had the Vista OS to no avail. I have noticed that the Windows 7 drivers for my unit are mostly 32 bit and there is no specific Windows 7 driver for the chipset. See THIS LINK for details.

 

Here is the hardware configuration:

 

Memory ( 2G ) [2]   

Memory ( 2048M ) [2]   

Liteon 19V 3.42A PA-1650-52LC adapter [1]   

Intel 5100N MOW_RW M PCIE NB WLAN(LI) [1]   

Processor ( Intel T6400 2.0G ) [1]   

CCY US 84Key A4S ORG KBD (08Y F32 F42) [1]   

HLDS GSA-T50N RAMBO ODD [1]   

Sony Rushmore 11.1V 5200mAhBattery [1]   

Memory ( 2G ) [2]   Memory ( 2048M ) [2]   

Hard Drive ( 250G ) [1]   

Volex US15S3+SPT-2+VAC5S Power Cord [1]  

CPL JITR2 14.1WX DDRIII CB W/QGP [1]

 

Please investigate this issue and advise ASAP!

 

Thanks for any help you can provide.
