Are you ever gonna update the graphic card driver for T60?

Hi,

 

I just want to ask Lenovo engineers if you are ever going to update the graphic card driver for T60. I don't believe I'm the only one who owns a T60 with ATI X1400 has those graphic card issues like strips on the screen, random freezing, etc. I've tried every single possible mean but nothing seemed to work. ATI has released several new mobility drivers (including X1400) since the last you guys updated it. You won't allow us to use the "official drivers" because you probably burned some vendor info to the chip. Well, I force installed one of the new official versions anyway and set the Hardware Acceleration second to full, the freezing issues actually happened a lot less often. But since it didn't go well with the presentation stuff, I had to switch back to the driver provided by you.

 

So I wonder if you still plan to update that driver. I know it is an "old" graphic card, but that doesn't mean you could ignore it since you've got so many serious issues on T60, especially for the graphic card.

 

Please give me a response. If it's a negative, I'm thinking throw my T60 away and get a new laptop.

 

Thanks

Mark, thanks for taking the ownership to forward this to the right team members for resolution as I do believe that Lenovo really wants to put out quality hardware, software, and drivers.

Mark, thank you noticing this.

 

For your information, the crashes discussed in the thread linked above are the ones I tried to diagnose in this thread: http://forums.lenovo.com/lnv/board/message?board.id=T_Series_Thinkpads&thread.id=10748&view=by_date_...

 

I am also "Grimmeh" in the thread linked in a post above.

Hello Mark_Lenovo,

 

Would you please be kind enough to update us on your and Lenovo's efforts to date?  I am going on almost  2 weeks without a freeze after the changes made on 7/31/08, which are listed in the TP Forum.

 

Thanks,

Re: Are you ever gonna update the graphic card driver for T60?

All,

 

Thanks for your patience - I believe we now have the production drivers on the web for the T60 ATI systems running XP.

 

Here is thelink to the downloads

 

A big "Thanks" to KAZ for all his help here and on TPF, and for the time he invested in building a spreadsheet of his test cases which gave us a helping hand on the recreation.   Also, quick thanks to the other members on this thread and on TPF who shared their results and testing.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark
