Having problems with my video card!

2010-10-30, 13:36 PM

Hi,

 

Lets start with my laptop's specs: Lenovo ThinkVantage W700, Intel Core2Quad 2.0Gh Processor, 4GB of RAM,  a NVIDIA Quadro FX3700M Graphic Card, and Windown 7 Pro x64

 

The problem I am facing occurs when playing games (like the latest PES2011) while I am playing the screen turns black for some time and then turns normal again and sometime I also got an BSOD, there was a driver that did cause the BSOD "nvlddmkm.sys" one of NVIDIAS Graphic Card components, I searched on the internet something related to it, and found many info (here is some) but can not slove the issue, I ran some memory stress tests like memtest and the stress test of ThinkVantage Toolbox with no errors, I can not identify the problem, please help how to check if the power supply or the temperature is ok, any help regarding this would be appreciated.

I think it's a driver issue. See this: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/W-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/W701-crash-problems/td-p/265780
