Guest geforce8600m GT user Posted October 29, 2009 Report Share Posted October 29, 2009 I have a fresh installed Windows 7 Professional x64 on my laptop (MSI GX600 with geforce 8600M GT). before I installed any nvidia driver (win7 default graphic driver/adapter was in use) the power saving options DID work. this means if i set power saving options to power off the monitor after X minutes, it DID work. even if i use a command line tool such as nircmd (nircmd.exe monitor off) it did work and the monitor powered off and was blank. but then I installed the nvidia drivers... and it DID NOT work anymore. whenever win7 powers off the monitor (by time or by command line tools and apps) it just fades out to blank within a second and then immediately switches on like before.. now imagine the power saving options are something like: after 1 minute fade to 0% (so it's dark but not powered off), after 2 minutes monitor powers off. an ENDLESS loop begins, because everytime the monitor powers off, it's off for a second and then back to normal again. I tried various nvidia drivers from the 19x.xx and 18x.xx series - everytime the same problem. also everytime I uninstalled a driver and tested it with blank win7 graphic drivers it did work again.. it just doesn't work with nvidia drivers! what can I do, I really need to get this workin! any ideas?
