My laptop is Lenovo ThinkPad T520 4242-4UU
Hardware configuration is:
Core i7 2620M / 2.7 GHz - vPro
RAM 4 GB
HDD 500 GB
NVS 4200M / HD Graphics 3000
OS Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate
I've got this laptop on July, 2011. At first, it works perfect. But since 2012, the bluescreen problem, as attached, has happened frequently and really annoy me a lot.
I've reinstaled the Windows 7, and tried different driver, but none of them solve the problem throughly.
The driver I've tried are:
- NVIDIA Official
- Verde 296.10 Driver WHQL
- Verde 295.73 Driver WHQL
- Verde 295.51 Driver BETA
- Verde 290.53 Driver BETA
- Lenovo Official
- NVIDIA Optimus Display
- 22.214.171.12493 (NVIDIA Graphics Driver)
- 126.96.36.199 (NVIDIA HD Audio Driver)
- 188.8.131.528 (Intel Graphics Driver)
- Details of this driver is here: http://download.leno...es/83de42ww.txt
Normally, bluescreen will happen when I drag a picture into Photoshop CS5, or open some PDF files with Adobe Reader 10.1.2. It happened so sudden, that I have not got a chance to see the picture be opened in Photoshop, or the PDF be displayed in Adobe, bluescreen befell. These are two major software came across bluescreen. However, when I reboot the laptop, and reopen the same picture, or reopen the same PDF, it won't cause bluescreen anymore. (But the Photoshop will prompt that the driver of GPU is crashed and has automatically turn off my GPU acceleration) It just like a random bluescreen by the god.
Other software, like Internet Explore 8.0, Firefox 10.0, QQ 2012, or came across bluescreen once or two, but not often.
It's so weird that I cannot figure it out why and how to solve.
Is there any friends have the same problem. Or any ideas to solve it?
Many thanks and wish everyone has a great weekend.

I updated the BIOS, as well as turned on the discrete graphics.
It seems it did work for two months. However, recently, this kind of bluescreen problems come again.
It's very weird that I'm wondering if it's still the hardware problem of the NVS 4200?

This period, it happend frequently when I use Acrobat to create a form. But to detail discuss about how often, it seems difficult since I'm not sure which software at which function will cause this problem.

If I use the integrated Intel graphic card, then everything works well. So I guess it might be the physical problem of the NVS 4200
