Vista BSOD with Lenovo R61 & nvs140m 128MB

Im using Vista Enterprise 32bit on a . This notebook has an

Laptop Make/Model: Lenovo R61 15,4"

Graphics Card -- Device ID (DEV_ID) if known: [/b]nvidia NVS140M chip with 128 MB[/b]

Current working Driver Version: none

Last Useable Driver Version: none

Operating System: M$ Windows Vista Enterprise 32bit

An accurate description of the issue at hand: Bluescreen on every bootup with nvidia drivers: STOP(0x00000116)

0.) BIOS UPDATE: Latest Lenovo BIOS is installed

1.) Windows VISTA: WindowsUpdate: Patched up 100%

2.) all available OS Updates: This would be the same as line 1..

3.) current Chipset Driver: ALL updates from Lenovo installed, including chipset and all the rest.

4.) DirectX 9.0c and all Updates for DirectX

5.) Laptop specific drivers: Same as 3).. all done

6.) update other drivers like WLAN or Sound: Same as 5) and 3), all done

I have tried to find older drivers at IBM, Lenovo and Nvidia to no avail. The latest produce the bluescreen without fail. Standard Gfx driver works in all resolutions though. I checked but did not find any Notebook BIOS options that might have anything to do with configuring the memory sharing between gfx and mobo ... so nothing changed. I have downloaded a few (including latest) driver packages from here with the modified INF but in spite of not complaining while installing the drivers ,the notebook boots without a gfx driver and then detects and installs the std driver again OR bluescreens out. I have not found any NVS140M in your INF files anywhere... not in the list of supported devices.

Am i missing something or does this piece of crap simply NOT work ?
