Re: X60 - Screen flickers and screen shutoff - problem with power management or hardware failure?

2010-03-25, 5:12 AM

I'm still running on Windows 7 (6 weeks) and haven't seen the error since upgrading.  My driver version for the chipset is 8.15.10.1867.

Which OS and driver version are you looking for?  I still have some of the original downloads.

All,

 

After going through this thread, several users have found that in order to permanently fix this issue is to rollback the display card driver to the older version or an installation to the older version of the display card. I am currently using the X60 with XP loaded with V4.16.10.4926 however I am unable to replicate the issue on my own laptop. Kindly use the workaround as provided by previous customers which have tested. Once the steps has been done, do not update the Display Card drivers on the System Update or Windows Automatic Update.

 

The workable driver for Win XP/2000 32bit is v6.14.10.4860. The text file can be found at the bottom of this page for Display driver (Intel GL960, GM965)

 

The workable driver for Win Vista 32bit is v7.14.10.1329. Its text file can be found at the bottom of this page for Video Driver (Intel GL960 / GM965)

 

1. Win XP Workaround


Driver Roll back

  • Click Start
  • Click Run
  • Type following in the “Run” bar
  • devmgmt.msc
  • Select Display Adapters
  • Double click on Mobile Intel® 945 Express Chipset Family
  • Click “Driver” Tab
  • Click “Roll Back Driver”

If above does not help, do try the following steps..

 

Reinstallation of the Default Graphic Card Driver
(Available by default with Lenovo provided Recovery CD.)

 

  • Click Start
  • Click Control Panel
  • Click “Add or Remove Programs”
  • Select “Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver”
  • Click “Change/Remove”

  • Click Run
  • Paste following

  • Click Next
  • Wait for the installation of the graphic card
  • Once done, select reboot.

 

If above does not help, do try the following steps.

Re: X60 - Screen flicker summary

All,

 

We are marking the post above as the official solution to this issue even though I expect not all members will find it the ideal answer.   We are uploading several of the required driver versions to the support site and will update the post with links to these drivers.

 

We have pursued this issue at intervals for many months, and have been unable to isolate the combination of variables that produce these symptoms for some customers.  Additionally, Intel and Lenovo development have concluded the updates on this series of drivers.

 

I believe this recommendations in the above post should aid the majority of customers who might encounter these symptoms.

 

A special thanks to all members involved in this discussion who have shared their collective experiences over these past months.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark
