I've been having the strangest experience with my new G74sx. It's a month old right now and it's been doing the same thing for a while now, it seems to be happening more often now. Whenever I play any game, (Skyrim, SWTOR, LoL) anything like that, no matter how graphics intensive I have no problems. however, whenever I go on for example facebook, scrolling through pictures 1 of 2 things happens at random. Either my screen will flicker and the driver will crash for the 560m, or it will actually artifact on me and freeze completely. as for the specs..
actually it happened to me while going to get the specs. x). Here's the driver error:
"display driver NVIDIA windows kernel mode driver, version 290.53 stopped responding and has successully recovered."
and just a fyi, I am using the beta drivers for the 560m right now, but the same thing was happening before I upgraded to them for the skyrim boosts.
BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. G74Sx.203, 23/09/2011
SMBIOS Version 2.6
gpu driver : 290.53
It's strange because I get the driver error, meaning most likely software issues. and then it will artifact up on me, which i was understanding meant it was overheating. Sorry for the novel, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
