I have my W500 4061-W8Q for almost 3 years already and it has been working perfectly.... till now.
I have changed nothing in my system, but today in the evening i got a BSOD with "ati2dvag" error and that device has gone into "infinite loop"... In BIOS the display settings were: graphics for BIOS: internal, use discrete graphics, don't allow OS detect switchable graphics.
Fortunately i have Intel Integrated graphics and i could switch to it in BIOS... Still no solution i found helped me so far. Yes, there was a suggestion with "PCI-to-PCI Bridge" fix, original ATI drivers. But! i noticed that i get the vertical lines while laptop is booting already and sometimes it hangs so early that i even can't get into windows for a benchmark or something like that...
As my intel-graphic card is running ok, i suppose that ATI Graphic Card won't work properly anymore?! Did anyone have such problem? Or should i send it to guarantee right now?
Hope for some help here

The problem was discovered on XP-System, but now installed Windows7 and laptop's been running fine for one hour already... No problems at all...
Could have been a Windows XP bug!?

Yep, the problem came again, can't boot, the lines and strange squares come while "Starting Windows" screen finishing with BSOD, telling me about infinite loop and "unable to reset the graphic card driver" etc...
So it's to 99,9% an ATI Card hardware issue... will have to get it repaired.
Thanks for the advice!

Just in case anyone else will have such problem -> go to service center...
My Systemboard = Mainboard was exchanged (guarantee). Now working perfectly.
Thanks for your responses!
