W530 Nvidia Discrete Mode - problems in PowerPoint and Excel

Hi, I've experienced problems with window refreshing in PowerPoint and Excel while running W530 in Nvidia Discrete Mode. While creating and wiewing PowerPoint 2007 presentation in normal view the slides' miniatures are not refreshing when selected. While viewing worksheet in Excel with border lines applied to cells they are not refreshing after scrolling down so the screen becomes completely unreadable. The problem does not exist in Optimus or Integrated mode.

Yeah, all updated via Lenovo "System update" and Windows update. I have not checked if the problem exists in newer versions of Microsoft Office - I'm using 2007. What is interesting in Optimus mode on external monitor running on Nvidia everything is OK - no display refreshing in Powerpoint and Excel is present only in Discrete Mode.

By the way - W530 has Quadro K1000M but similar problems occur with other Nvidia cards - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/e38f2609-4598-433a-9731-8e21bdfbc724/powerpo...

Downloading the latest driver for K1000M directly from Nvidia helped. Lenovo System Update should be updated accordingly Smiley Sad
