Default Re: GeForce Go 6600 freezes system when running OpenGL apps

Well, since I tried almost everything regarding software, it crossed my mind, that the problem could be caused by a heat problem (but I still doubt it).

This time I ran Enemy Territory in Window Mode (1152x864), instead of running in fullscreen. In a corner of the desktop I placed nvidia-settings to monitor the system and GPU core temperatures. Until the system freeze, I played for 20 to 30 minutes. When it froze, the temperature of the system was 56C (I find it normal), and the core temp was at 67C (nothing out of the ordinary, since I've seen the GPU reaching higher temperatures without causing any kind of problem).

What else could be causing the system to freeze? Bad drivers?
