Lenovo x220 tablet graphic card issue

My x220 tablet is haveing issues with the graphics card shutting off. I purchased my x220t about 3 months ago and I have begun to have a reacurring problem.

 

I will be running CAD 2011, nothing 3D, and the screen will spontanneously go black. 5 seconds later, it will restart and an issue report will pop up in the bottom right and corner of the screen.

 

This issue is a real problem since I bought this laptop for engineering and with an i5 processor, CAD sould be running fine. I did not expect the graphics card to be a limiting factor since I am only using 2D visualls right now. I have tried to find similar if others have had a similar issue but I can not find anything.

 

What should I do?

 

ps, I have a screen shot of the info but I am unable to post it.

Re: Lenovo x220 tablet graphic card issue

hey jwismer,

could you uninstall the current graphic driver for you unit; let windows install its generic drivers and then test your unit with your CAD software.

does the same problem occur?

later, head to http://support.lenovo.com and install the latest graphic driver that is available there.
