Question

 

 

 

What graphics driver and BIOS setting should be used on ThinkPad T410s systems with switchable graphics for models of ThinkPad T410s (2901, 2904, 2907, 2912, 2924, 2926, 2928) that have the switchable graphics subsystem?

Answer

Check BIOS Settings, Press F1 on startup to enter BIOS setup.

 

BIOS Setup -> Config -> Display -> Graphics Device setting

 

For Windows XP 32 Bit

 

 

Set the BIOS config setting to Discrete

  

 

Use the XP discrete NVIDIA graphics driver (6MD1xxWW) where xx will be updated over time to the latest level.

 

 

For Windows Vista 32 or 64 Bit

 

 

Set the BIOS config setting to Discrete

 

 

Use the Vista discrete NVIDIA graphics driver (either 6MD3xxWW for 32bit, or 6MD4xxWW for 64bit) where xx will be updated over time to the latest level.

 

 

For Windows 7 32 or 64 Bit

 

 

Bios switch can be set to any postion - Integrated, Discrete, or Switchable

 

 

Use the Windows 7 switchable graphics driver for any of the 3 BIOS settings (6ID7xxWW for 32bit, or 6ID8xxWW for 64bit) where xx will be updated over time to the latest level

 

Systems running Windows 7 or later may switch graphic modes through the OS - other OS (XP / Vista) required setting change in the BIOS to select Integrated or Discrete mode which would take effect on the next boot.

Hi,

Wondering if it would be possible to update the BIOS and driver versions to reflect today's (11/8/2011) recommended versions?

 

I am having the same problems, running

BIOS:6UET67WW 1.47

Windows 7 64Bit SP1

NVidia NVS3100M driver 8.17.12.8562

 

Already had my motherboard assy (heard it includes CPU and GPU)  replaced. Desperately seeking help on this. 

 

Thank you!
