Re: PowerMizer (level 2) GT 240m
I'm experiencing the same problem on my HP8740w laptop with nvidia quadro 5000M.
It looks like it's a problem with Ubuntu 11.10 x64. Everything works as expected on ubuntu 11.04 but I could not manage to get the gpu to reach power level 2 in 11.10.
I have tried various drivers from nvidia's site as well as the ones in the repositories to no avail.
I seriously hope this issue gets resolved soon...
EDIT: Solved by upgrading the BIOS of my HP8740w to version F.20
