Y550 Screen flickers, NVIDA 186.91 driver stopped

2009-11-06, 17:46 PM

Anyone else (running windws 7) having this issue?


My screen will randomly flicker then it recovers and says something about how NVIDIA 186.91 stopped working and was able to recover. NEVER had this problem with Vista.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Uninstall the driver and install the beta version:

 

http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook_winvista_win7_195.39_beta.html

 

Or install the older version:

 

http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_win7_186.03_whql.html

 

It will probably work after doing that. I am assuming you're running a 32-bit OS. I'd go with the beta drivers.

 

 

64-bit versions:

This is redic. Still getting errors with 3 versions of the driver. Same problem. Happens more frequently- sometimes the screen goes black then comes back that the Nvidia recovered 3 times in 10 minutes... help!

Seems to happen when there's active videos/graphics (such as watching a video, using google earth, etc)
