philnv94 Posted November 18, 2009 Report Share Posted November 18, 2009 (edited) hi Everybody, I'm French user: so, sorry if my English is not very good I have an Asus M70VN with a Nvidia 9650M GT (1024 MB) & I read here some users have problem with this GC when they wanted to update the driver: me too! I have Vista SP2 in 64 bits. The problem is the following: when I want to update my driver with a version > to 18x.yy version, I have freeze, and then, the error with the nvlddmkm.sys file (the driver) and the message "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered ..." (something like that) - and sometimes a BSOD, and pretty often, artifacts -, many times a day (anyway, it happened each day, at least once a day, ever & ever!!), I tried with the 186.81 version from Nvidia site, with 19x.yy version(s) driver from LaptopVideo 2Go site: didn't work, same problem(S)!!! After tried possible solutions found here and elsewhere, the ONLY AND STABLE solution I found is to come back with a previous version of the driver: so, I used the 179.48 Bêta from Nvidia site (release date: 01/30/2009): works very fine since 15 days, no error, no freeze, no BSOD, no message, all of these have disappeared!!! Another solution is bulls*** (like customize Registry or underclocking the CG with RivaTuner or other soft: didn't work at all!!) or very risky, indeed definitively lacking, like this: my laptop is always under warranty (more one year), I don't want to burn my GC by tweaking or modifying my BIOS (and changing & increasing the voltage of my GC!!) and loose my warranty in the same way !!! PS: don't talk me about benchmarks; I'm not stupid, I didn't play games with my laptop, only weak-minded guys do it! If this can help!! Thanks Edited November 18, 2009 by philnv94 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
