Ok, I have already contacted bot nVidia, Intel, AND Lenovo numerous times about this issue.
The problem that I have been experiencing is continuing to intensify as time goes by.
I KNOW what the cause of the problem is, but unfortunately none of the aforementioned companies have released a fix for it.
The whole issue has to do with an nVidia driver stability due to the complex architecture of Intel Optimus (the system that allows for switchable GPUs).
The error message I receive on the Blue Screen is as follows
after I reboot, the driver does not work at all and the computer is stuck on the Intel HD3000 REGARDLESS of what ponsition the GPU switch is in (nVidia control panel also reports that no display adapter is currently installed)
I have verified that this system file is part of the nVidia display driver... I tried going to nVidia's official site to download a newer version of the driver (because Lenovo has not released an update of its own since late November....). The big issue here is, that the newer driver sets DO NOT support the Optimus architecture at all, regardless of whether or not the GT 555m is supported... nVidia was able to verify this fact via e-mail...
My computer has crashed twice in the past 20 minutes, and quite frankly, it just makes me sick that I cannot do anything about it, and cannot get any initiative from either party...
Anybody know how I can eradicate this issue so that I am able to work efficiently and not constantly doing so in fear of losing my work?
