Default Re: Blank Screen on HP EliteBook 8540w with NVIDIA driver

This indirectly causes the NVIDIA driver's ACPI handle lookup attempt to fail for the GPU in question, which in turns prevents the driver from obtaining important information via ACPI methods associated with the GPU.
How does the nvidia windows driver deal with this situation? Does windows merge the
two leaves with identical _ADR values?
