scarbo Posted September 23, 2008 Report Share Posted September 23, 2008 (edited) So, it seems I'm in serious need of help. I'm already thinking of selling my notebook because I can't get my problems solved. Here's the issue (and i truly hope someone knows what to do :) ): I've already had trouble with my notebook when I installed new drivers for my graphics card (the known downclocking problem). Clocks were okay when using the standard driver (i think 167.43 or something?) but my notebook kept crashing displaying the "nvlddmkm" error. Updating to the newest driver helped me get rid of the nvlddmkm issue, but caused more problems due to the downclocking. Eventually, I followed Dox' instructions on flashing a newer BIOS version ( http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/index....showtopic=17753 ) from 1.00.07 to 1.00.08. Everything worked kinda fine, the clocks were up to normal and games were running perfectly okay. UNTIL! for some f***ing reason, my notebook began crashing again, worse than ever before. I didn't do ANYTHING. The bugs just appeared out of nowhere. Sometimes I get the "nvlddmkm" issue every minute without me doing anything special (e.g. just surfing on the internet or opening a movie). Games (especially Company of Heroes) crash when I try to set my screen resolution to 1920x1200 (which is my native resolution, actually) or tweaking the details. My notebook crashes on startup (every now and then) and it's no longer fun to play games at all because it keeps crashing because of the driver. I tried several ones - the only thing that gets Company of Heroes to run is when I set my screen resolution to any other than 1920x1200. I don't get it, I'm really desperate. Oh and here's my system: MoBo Manufacturer is CLEVO. Notebook model is NEXOC Osiris 705 III Windows Vista Ultimate 64 Bit Intel DualCore 2x2,4 Geforce 8800M GTX (768 MB ) - vBios version 184.108.40.206.a3 4096 MB RAM 250 GB HD Space (which is not important, I guess) Somebody, please help! :) Edited September 23, 2008 by scarbo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
