Most stable BIOS / Video driver combination?

I'm expecting to receive a brand new TPT2 in the next few days and after trawling through loads of posts in various threads, there's a lot of different opinions on BIOS/video driver combinations.

 

So simply put, what BIOS/video driver version are you running and is it reasonaly stable?

 

Thanks!

2.10 Bios and 1177 video driver. Solid.

stick to the 1176 driver Lenovo provides. 1177 causes problems with the WinTab /Wacom driver releases.

Jonathan, what are the problems? Could you perhaps start a thread to document them? Thanks.

I agree that we need more info on the wacom driver issue. 

 

FYI, I am using the Wacom driver from their website.  I got that advice off of this forum months ago.
