Nvidia Kernel Mode Driver Problem

2011-08-15, 16:30 PM

Hello,

for some time I've been having serious problem with my grapihics card. From time to time everything except sound freezes and screen goes black. At first it stayed that way for a few seconds, now it is up to two minutes. Then everything goes back to normal and Windows displays message "Display Driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver Version 280.26 has stopped working and has successfully recovered'.

 

This happens with any driver downloaded from Nvidia site, but not with driver from Lenovo (at least I think so, it was ok for over a week, whereas with Nvidia driver it freezes almost every day). I could just use Lenovo driver, but driver is from 2009 (180.00 or something like that), and I actually need some new features.

 

My laptop is Lenevo Y550, graphic card is Geforce 130m. Few months ago my laptop was at Lenovo service, because graphic card was overheating (there was a problem with a fan and it was replaced), and the problem started happening before that.

 

It is worth noting that the problem occurs only when using Windows (using Internet, starting some applications etc), but never when I play any game, so I don't think the card is overheating again (especially since it is not simply powering down, like before:).

 

Do you have any idea what's the problem might be?

I've kept updating it with newer ones, like 10 times, but now I have performed a clean Windows intallation. It's been a few hours and as for now no freezes, but I'll post in a few days to confirm it is ok:).

Well, as I said, I wouldn't mind using Lenovo driver, but I really need OpenCL support, which is not provided there. Any workaround? I don't suppose I should count on Lenovo to release newer driver any time soon?
