Default Re: Random crashes, NVRM Xid messages

Well, if mine were still in warranty I wouldn't mind trying out a new motherboard. It wouldn't surprise me if the card were faulty since my previous laptop with a GT8600M nvidia card had to have a replacement video card - nvidia infamously screwed up an entire batch of the 8400/8600 series cards (http://apcmag.com/nvidia_disaster_th...pus_faulty.htm).

However, since the 540M doesn't crash under windoze I still strongly suspect that there is an issue with the driver rather than the card.

Either way, and considering nvidia's complete lack of support for their product, it sure seems like a damned good reason to avoid them in the future...
